I was seduced by the stunning cover of Rachel L. Demeter’s novel Finding Gabriel.
Set in 1815 in Paris, the story is a dark one. Some of the details are so horrifying that I had a difficult time reading them. But somehow I couldn’t stop turning the pages.
Gabriel is the quintessential tortured hero, but of course the love of a good woman eventually draws out his secrets. Ariah too has secrets to overcome. Her scars are just not as visible as his.
Together, they struggle to reach the light. There is much to overcome: poverty, madness, regrets, and a plot twist or two.
Demeter has a gift for evocative descriptions. Let her take you to a different place and time.
If you could live in a different period in history, when would it be?
