  Book Description
Rosemary Gresham has no family beyond the band of former urchins who helped her survive as a girl in the mean streets of London. Grown now, they are no longer pickpockets--instead they focus on high value items and have learned how to blend into upper-class society. Rosemary is beginning to question whether she can continue in this life when she's offered the challenge of a lifetime--determine whether a certain wealthy gentleman is loyal to Britain or to Germany. After all how does one steal a family's history, their very name?

As Europe moves ever closer to World War I, rumors swirl around Peter Holstein. Awkward and solitary, but with access to the king, many fear his influence. But Peter can't help his German last name and wants to prove his loyalty to the Crown--so he can go back to anonymously writing a series of popular adventure novels. When Rosemary arrives on his doorstep pretending to be a well-credentialed historian, Peter believes she's the right person to help him dig through his family's past.

When danger and suspicion continue to mount, both realize they're in a race against time to discover the truth--about Peter's past and about the undeniable attraction kindling between them.
 My Review
When I started reading this book I had no idea it would be so amazing! This is one of the best books I have read all year! The characters felt very real, and with Roseanna White's wonderful writing style I quickly connected with Rosemary and the other characters. The story was rich in detail, and I loved the historical setting. When the answers to Peter's family history were needed to prove important facts, a race to find the truth started. And the adventure took some unbelievable turns along the way. It was an amazing story, and I can not wait for the next book in the series to come out!
 I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review. The opinions are my own.
