Moonlight Masquerade: A Review
And washing dishes. (Our dishwasher broke.)
However, I did finish a vacation read last week: Moonlight Masquerade by Ruth Axtell.
Increasingly, I am enjoying historical fiction. This is largely due to the fact that I am beginning to truly grasp when events in history occurred and how they all interrelate. (Thank you Classical Conversations.) Moonlight Masquerade occurs during the time of Napoleon
The main character is a richly developed spy posing as a butler in a countess’s household, named Rees Phillips. As he learns to manage a household for the first time, he keeps watch on the comings and goings in this busy English estate with strong French loyalties. His main subject is a certain Lady Celine Wexham, who seems the “model British subject, but is French by birth. It appears that Lady Wexham might be helping the French defeat England.
All is not as it seems, of course. But to find out who is really helping whom, why you will have to read Moonlight Masquerade yourself.
When is your next vacation?
Thank you Revell for sending me this book to read and review. I was not paid for this post and all opinions expressed are mine. And, of course, I do have a few affiliate links within this review.)
