Oliver is grateful when, following his escape from jail and resulting injury, Maggie takes him into her home, doctors him and hides him from the jailer who is hunting for him. But the discovery that she has hiding in a closet the very necklace he was jailed for having stolen sets in motion a plan to simultaneously vindicate him from the charge of theft and take vengeance on the man who has injured them both. Their plan does not go as smoothly as they had hoped, though, when both his jailer and her former manager pick up their trail...
I read this a nearly month ago but have taken a while to review because I have struggled to work out how to express it. The fact that it still stands out in my memory after that long, despite having read many books in the meantime, stands as a testimony to how memorable this book is. I've read and enjoyed other books by the author, but this is perhaps my favourite to date - strangely enough, at least partly because of the jailer's part of the story, which I would never have guessed at the start. Though there is some brutality and violence, it's not excessive and does generally feel necessary/appropriate to the era, and does not override the story itself. It's not a light read but it is clean - and I love the ending. All in all, this is a highly memorable tale of redemption that I would very much recommend.
Note that I received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review and this is my considered opinion of the book.

Firstly, the two Regency protagonists, Maggie and Oliver, are three-dimensional. They are both wonderful and flawed. And, yes, it is easy to fall in love with them as we learn more about their broken backgrounds.
Griep writes with great imagery, humor, and skill.
”Words stagger around on my tongue like little drunkards.”
”...’Every soul has value.’”
”...That stung. Of course, Barrow was one of God’s creatures--but so was a rat.”(BTW, this ”value” theme carries over from her last book, but yet The House at the Edge of the Moor is also a great stand-alone.)
The enemies are dark, dangerous, and even described as demons. How I loved that. But how I loved even more the subtle thread of one very lost, dark soul beginning to hear God’s call on his life. How far is too far for forgiveness? With people? With God?
The faith element is present at appropriate times. Strong, but fitting. If you can't have faith when approaching death, when can you?Does this same faith carry over into life? Greed, need of a loving father, trust, backwards prejudice, judgment, and justice are all themes woven into this deliciously rich book that went down like honey into my reader’s soul.
”True justice starts with repentance. How can we ask God to show justice in the world while willfully nursing our own hidden prejudices, selfishness, lusts, greed...our own broken relationships?”
By the end of the novel, I had completed a romance, filled my head with beautiful words, received words of faith to consider, and enjoyed more twists than I could have imagined. Yet every twist actually was credible. Thus, I closed the book, extremely happy. If only it weren’t over.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author as well as from NetGalley. This in no way influenced my opinions, which are solely my own.
Profound!! I enjoyed this book so much I will probably read it again.
