Review: A Name Unknown (Shadows Over England #1) by Roseanna M White

Blurb (from Amazon):

Rosemary Gresham has no family beyond the band of former urchins that helped her survive as a girl in the mean streets of London. Grown now, they concentrate on stealing high-value items and have learned how to blend into upper-class society. But when Rosemary must determine whether a certain wealthy gentleman is loyal to Britain or to Germany, she is in for the challenge of a lifetime. How does one steal a family's history, their very name?

Peter Holstein, given his family's German blood, writes his popular series of adventure novels under a pen name. With European politics boiling and his own neighbors suspicious of him, Peter debates whether it might be best to change his name for good. When Rosemary shows up at his door pretending to be a historian and offering to help him trace his family history, his question might be answered.

But as the two work together and Rosemary sees his gracious reaction to his neighbors' scornful attacks, she wonders if her assignment is going down the wrong path. Is it too late to help him prove that he's more than his name?

My Review:

A Name Unknown is the first installment to Roseanna M White's whole new series, Shadows Over England. I cannot say how much I love this story. This is by far my favorite of Roseanna M White's books to date. Rosemary is a fabulous, lovable character and I love the chemistry between her and Peter. The story is full of intrigue, humor, adventure, danger, and faith. It has got it all. I most definitely recommend this book. Looking forward to see what happens next in the series. A well deserved five star read.

I received this book from the author, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
