Susanna Parkwell used to be considered a lady but now she is a servant to them. She spends her days cleaning up after well-to-do ladies so she can save up enough money to help her brother who was wounded in the Civil War. When one of her ladies asks a favor of Susanna she is at first hesitant because it would be wrong to impersonate someone else even via letters but she cannot refuse the money.
Theodore Blakely wants to be an artist but knows he has no other choice but to work for his successful father. When his father sets him up to marry a woman he’s never met he is forced to correspond with her by means of letters. At first put off by the forwardness of the young lady he soon becomes enamored. But how will he react when he discovers he has been misled?
I admit I was skeptical about this story at first. I thought how could Ms. McHugh possibly tell a romantic story through letters in a novella? I cannot tell you how happy I am that I got the opportunity to read A Waltz at Midnight. Crista McHugh brings a magical romance to life with A Waltz at Midnight! I could read this over and over! I cannot get enough of both Susanna and Teddy’s letters to each other. I’ve never before experienced this kind of passion being expressed through letters. I completely fell in love with this couple and Ms. McHugh’s writing while reading A Waltz at Midnight and I highly recommend that you grab a copy today you won’t be disappointed by this delightful read!
