“Lady Maybe” ~ Book Review

Feb 29, 2016 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing Julie Klassen’s book, Lady Maybe.


As is my custom, if I could ask Julie one question about Lady Maybe it would be — “Did you find it difficult for Lady Maybe to keep her secret?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!


And without further ado, onto Rachel’s Back Talk!

From the Back Cover:

One final cry…“God almighty, help us!” and suddenly her world shifted violently, until a blinding collision scattered her mind and shook her bones. Then, the pain. The freezing water. And as all sensation drifted away, a hand reached for hers, before all faded into darkness…

Now she has awakened as though from some strange, suffocating dream in a warm and welcoming room she has never seen before, and tended to by kind, unfamiliar faces. But not all has been swept away. She recalls fragments of the accident. She remembers a baby. And a ring on her finger reminds her of a lie.

But most of all, there is a secret. And in this house of strangers she can trust no one but herself to keep it.

Another fabulous read by Julie Klassen! I loved the similarities of “Lady Maybe” to “Jane Eyre” and Jane Austen’s books. The plot was so intriguing that the book kept me reading late into the night.

Lady Maybe is addressed as such, because for awhile, she is not exactly sure WHO she is. The doctor tells her that she is someone, but her heart tells her something else. And when she does discover the truth, is she bound to her secret for the sake of her family? Only two men know her secret and she is conflicted on her feelings for them. If she loves one, her secret can be kept. However if she choses the other, her secret must be revealed.

Riveting, suspenseful, and an altogether wonderful story of love and redemption!
