Raine, along with her parents, were traveling on a boat routed to land in Norfolk when there was a terrible accident. Raine's parents were lost at sea. Now Raine has no where to go and nothing to live on. When she is sent to the Stafford Manor to seek employment, she is not expecting to be attracted to Derek the man of the house. Raine is drawn to Derek at first sight. She also finds herself unexpectedly looked after by a friendly spirit that seems to be watching out for her.
What will Derek lower himself to, to get the title to Strafford manor? What will Raine do to get the money to get home to her elderly grandfather? How will blossoming love result to feelings of hate? How will two characters who are meant to stand the test of time be able to be apart? These are just a few questions to ask yourself, while reading this great novel.
Sojourn with a Stranger is absolutely wonderful. I was captivated and submerged from beginning to end. This is not your typical love story, but none the less spellbinding. Derek is a man who is struggling to make a place for himself in a world where his family's name is his life's "golden ticket". Raine is a very strong willed and prideful young lady. These two characters blend together effortlessly while keeping with the normal love/hate relationship that they seem to share. You will be emerced in the pages of this great romantic & historical novel. Keta Diablo is a master when it comes to historical romance and has proven once again that she is a delightful storyteller that deserves to have all of her novels read.
"What madness is this?" Derek paced the hallway. "Someone is up to no good." When he stopped to look at her, she reminded him of a frightened child. Her cheeks were pale, her eyes ringed with dark circles. "I'll get to the bottom of this. The Bible and Baby can not walk from that trunk in the attic," he looked toward the ceiling, "and suddenly materialize in your bedchamber."
"Poor man. The master has finally met a problem he doesn't understand and doesn't possess the ability to control."
"What is that supposed to mean? I tell you, someone in the manor dupes you, Raine."
"No, Derek. A spirit placed the objects in my room, a tormented, recently passed spirit."
"You drag the ghost into the conversation again. Tell me, what are you insinuating? You mean to say Cinda's-?"
"How would I know?" She hissed the words and wrung her hands. "You can't expect me to know what evil machinations occurred before I arrived."
"Evil?" He felt his forehead wrinkle. "Nothing evil transpired. Lucinda lost her mind, took her life." Despite the facts surrounding his wife's death, a niggling fear crept up his spine. "If evil played a part, I swear I wasn't aware of it."
