"From the first word to the last, Mist of Midnight is a completely absorbing romantic, and mysterious, novel. Ms. Byrd's writing is splendid, and her characters are so complex and endearing that they leap off the pages. I couldn't put it down. An absolutely irresistible read!" -- Anne Girard, author of Madame Picasso "Not since Jane Eyre have I read a Gothic romance that has captured my heart so completely. From the exotic India to an English estate shrouded in mystery, Byrd's eye for detail shines through on every page. Romance lovers are sure to devour the tale of Rebecca Ravenshaw and her search for the truth behind the mysteries of Headbourne House and the handsome young captain who lives on the estate." -- Renee Chaw, reviewer at Black `n Gold Girl's Book Spot "Sandra Byrd's trademark attention to historical accuracy combines with an eerily building intrigue to envelope readers in a sense of dark foreboding that hinges precariously between hope and desperation. Mist of Midnight is a subtly haunting, beautifully atmospheric, and decadently romantic Victorian tale that will find a comfortable home among the best Gothic romances of days gone by." -- Serena Chase, author of The Ryn and contributor to USA Today's Happy Ever After blog "Mist of Midnight is a beautiful, haunting tale. Sandra Byrd masterfully weaves together both romance and suspense among a cast of mysterious characters. I was immediately swept into the wonder of this story, and I loved unraveling all the secrets and discovering exactly what happened at the old Headbourne House." -- Melanie Dobson, author of Chateau of Secrets and The Courier of Caswell Hall "Once again, Sandra Byrd delivers a richly layered story that will leave you eagerly awaiting the next book in this brand-new series. Mist of Midnight has it all: intriguing and memorable characters-including a central female protagonist who is both complex and inspiring-a plot chock-full of mystery and suspense, and a Victorian gothic setting, impeccably researched and artfully and evocatively relayed. Prepare to be transported!" -- Karen Halvorsen Schreck, author of Sing For Me "Richly written and multi-layered, Mist of Midnight blends traditional England and exotic India in a historical feat worthy of Victoria Holt. Breathless danger, romance, and intrigue made this series opener by the ultra-talented Sandra Byrd a compelling must-read!" -- Laura Frantz, author of Love's Reckoning "Among the many things I love about reading a Sandra Byrd novel is knowing that her words will transport me to another place and time, that she will win me over with intriguing and complex characters, and that I'll savor every word. Mist of Midnight is no exception. I loved this book! Sandra Byrd could belong to the writing group of the Bronte sisters if they'd had one. Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre along with crumbling mansions, mysterious distant cousins, and one woman's journey to prove who she really is are just few layers that ripple through the mists. Bravo, Sandra! Another winner." -- Jane Kirkpatrick, award-winning author of A Light in the Wilderness "Mist of Midnight is wonderfully atmospheric, with all the right elements for a true Gothic novel, from sounds that go bump in the night to characters who are not at all what they seem. The spiritual underpinning is solid, comforting, even as we're trapped in the author's finely spun web of mystery, romance, and a sense of foreboding that doesn't lift until the final page. Charlotte Bronte? Victoria Holt? Meet Sandra Byrd, the modern mistress of Gothic romance!" -- Liz Curtis Higgs, New York Times bestselling author of Mine Is the Night "A marvelous mingling of mystery and deeply moving family and romantic love, Mist of Midnight kept me guessing until the very end. A house on a cliff, a Victorian-Gothic atmosphere, a cast of suspicious characters including a dark, brooding hero and a strong heroine: shades (or mists) of Jane Eyre and Rebecca! I look forward to the next novel in this compelling new series." -- Karen Harper, New York Times bestselling author of Mistress of Mourning "Reminiscent of Victoria Holt, [Mist of Midnight] includes an intriguing mystery that is so ingeniously planned that, upon finishing, readers will spend time flipping back to see how the clues were laid. The atmosphere of the setting will delight gothic romance audiences, while the inclusion of relatable scripture, gleaned from the protagonist's missionary roots, will satisfy inspirational readers. Richly detailed descriptions of life in British-occupied India cement this historical account, though perhaps take second place to the author's immensely engaging characters. * Historical Novel Society (Editor's Choice) * "Mist of Midnight is a subtly haunting, beautifully atmospheric, and decadently romantic story that will find a comfortable home among the best Gothic romances of days gone by." * USA Today * "Reminiscent of the Bronte sisters... A captivating Gothic love story that intertwines mystery and intrigue with romance, this novel grabs readers from its opening lines until its last page." * CBA Retailer + Resources * "Just the right mix of mystery and romance to keep the reader guessing until the end. Shady characters along with a strong heroine transport the reader to a different time and place. The rich prose will remind readers of Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights." * RT (Romantic Times) * "Infusing her story with mystery, tension, and emotion, Byrd strikes a fine balance between the darkness of a Gothic mystery and the sweetness of a captivating love story." * Publishers Weekly *
