First Book of 2017


Happy New Year! I think this is the third year I’ve joined in with Sheila’s First Book of the Year meme. My first book of 2017 is The Echo of Twilight by Judith Kinghorn.



In 1914, despite the clouds of war threatening Europe, Pearl Gibson’s future is bright. She has secured a position as a lady’s maid to a wealthy Northumberland aristocrat, a job that will win her not only respect but an opportunity to travel and live in luxury. Her new life at Lady Ottoline Campbell’s Scottish summer estate is a whirlwind of intrigue and glamour, scandals and confidences—and surprisingly, a strange but intimate friendship with her employer. 
But when violence erupts in Europe, Pearl and Ottoline’s world is irrevocably changed. As the men in their lives are called to the front lines, leaving them behind to anxiously brace for bad news, Pearl realizes she must share one final secret with her mistress—a secret that will bind them together forever…


Watch for a US Giveaway in a few days.

  4. Ooh, sounds good to me! I’ve been reading a lot of HF this year, but I don’t usually choose this time period. I like the sound of it though, and it does intrigue me enough to check it out further. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Mary.


  5. This sounds really good – ‘ intrigue and glamour, scandals and confidences’ in a historical setting. Hope it gets you off to a good start in 2017. Happy New Year!
