Lady in Waiting
Title: LADY IN WAITING
Author: Susan Meissner
Publisher: Waterbrook Press
Genre: Inspirational/part historical, part contemporary/women’s fiction
Jane Lindsey has been married for twenty-two years and she’s content—at least until Brad packs his belongings and walks out the door of their Manhattan home. But Jane is powerless to stop Brad—nor the events that follow his departure.
While going through a box from a British ‘jumble sale’, Jane discovers an old ring with a Latin inscription on the band. There is just one recognizable word—Jane. Jane feels an instant connection to the ring, and starts trying to learn more about it—and maybe even about herself.
LADY IN WAITING is the story of two different Jane’s who’s lives dovetail through the journey of one ring. Each woman ultimately realizes she has more control over her own life than she initially realizes.
Ms. Meissner writes award-winning novels that are sure to grab the readers attention and keep it through the end of the book. I was captivated from page one, and had to keep reading to find out more about the mysterious ring and the women who’s lives it touched. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $13.99. 340 pages.
