A Name Unknown

A Name Unknown (Shadows Over England) by Roseanna M. White is the first book in a new series that takes place in London just prior to World War I. Rosemary Gresham finds herself enmeshed in intrigue and espionage as the war looms closer. She is tasked with trying to find out if Peter Holstein is loyal to the Crown, or to Germany. In the process, an unmistakable attraction forms between them, and Rosemary is even more set on discovering the truth.

A Name Unknown has a unique storyline with lots of history sprinkled in. Through the backdrop of a country on the brink of war, Rosemary is a refreshingly strong female character. She is in a difficult situation and battles her conscience as she grows throughout the story. Peter's deep faith and gentle personality form the perfect foil for Rosemary.

There is so much to love about this suspenseful story. The history, the characters, the action and intrigue--but most of all the lessons taught through the developing relationship between the main characters. This book is long, at over 400 pages, but I found myself wishing for more. I'm looking forward to revisiting Rosemary's family in the next books in this series.
