LILIES ON THE LAKE
Genre: Historical Romance
When Pip Merrians chaperone on her long-awaited trip to Egypt admits she fled England because of a pregnancy, the adventurous trip of a lifetime turns to disaster.
When the time comes for the babys birth, John Henry Lovell is brought in to help. He is shocked to see Pip; her rejection of his previous marriage proposal is what sent him to the Middle East.
When her chaperone dies in childbirth, Pip decides to raise the newborn boy as her own. To avoid scandal when they return to England, John Henry offers to marry her. Though Pip believes John Henry only wants to raise his social status by marrying her, she cannot refuse, for the babys sake, and love soon blossoms between them.
Not nearly as emotionally intense and moving as many of her previous romances, LILIES ON THE LAKE is nevertheless a well-written love story peopled with decent characters (though it took this reader a while to warm up to Pip and John Henry) and a very tender and spiritually moving romance,
