Historical Fiction Book Review: A Beautiful Disguise
About the Book
Publisher's Book Description
A Beautiful Disguise, by Roseanna M. White, is not only the first book in The Imposters series, but it is also a genuinely intriguing and utterly enjoyable historical fiction novel. This creative story is certainly compelling and exceptionally well-written. Filled with history, romance, danger, and mystery, this book is interesting, thoughtful, and truly memorable.
With tremendous skill and remarkable thoroughness, Ms. White has written a novel that shines with brilliant pacing and captivating details. From the unique settings, to the original characters, to the riveting storyline, this book is wholly satisfying! Themes of family, resiliency, perseverance, faith, and hope add depth and meaning to a story that is quite inspiring and emotionally-stirring.
Set in England before WWI, the story captivates as it unfolds within the social bustle of London and the coastal calm of Northumberland. Financial hardships, physical impairments, and family secrets provide ample motivations to various characters as they attempt to live lives of meaning and purpose. Frequently, they must reevaluate their assumptions, address their insecurities, renew their hope, and nurture their faith all while they seek to find a truth that may be connected to unknown dangers.
From beginning to end, A Beautiful Disguise is a very special novel. It is thought-provoking, encouraging, and a pleasure to read. I highly recommend it, and I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
