If you are like me, and read about the first third of the book and find it not very interesting, I guarantee if you hang in there and read it through, the story does develop a little stronger, along with creating new events and rehashing past events, What's also enjoyable to read about are the number of choices Hannah has. More lives are mixed up along with the action of a few people.

This was a very odd book. Personally, I didn't even want to finish it. The plot was too weird and the characters (while developed) seemed to be lacking in quality. On a positive note, I would have to say Julie's writing style was professional and classy; however, in all honesty, I was disappointed in the author--at least in regards to the actual story. Perhaps, this is one reason the Publishing company was different for this book compared to other books by this same author.

Let me begin by stating that I am a fan of Julie Klassen. This is why I read all of her books.
This book was well written as all her books are, and showcases the brilliance of the author in penning period-drama. Yes, drama and plenty of scandal consumed the pages of this book which for Klassen's benefit, keeps the reader intrigued and interested. BUT there is a major flaw in the presentation. A flaw that did not exist in previous books. Perhaps it is because Klassen changed her publisher that she felt a need to write irrelevant and risqué scences. **SPOILER ALERT** there was one scene I just did not understand it's significance. The author has been successful in all her "other" books communicating attraction with the expected decency and propriety. This scene had the unmarried heroine in the bathroom and the door *mysteriously blows* open and one of her love interests just happens to be in the hall near her chamber as she emerges from the bathtub in her "too small towel". Perhaps this was Klassen's way of communicating to the publisher that her storytelling is now on par with secular authors and she too can write!! It is unfortunate that the scene was completely pointless and a misuse of ink and paper. Furthermore, I am not even sure how this is even categorized as Christian fiction. All objections considered, It was apparent that Christian fiction is no longer the intent. Seldom anything demonstrated a faith base (save one inference, with precious few words which supposedly communicating forgiveness). Anyway, The plot proved overall entertaining, and I attribute my rating based on the superiority of the writing alone. However I am disappointed to see YET ANOTHER of my favorite authors catapult in this direction.

I've read all of Julie Klassen's books and have really enjoyed this one. I agree with sbennett, that there were a couple of love scenes in this one that made me uncomfortable - they are more descriptive than anything Klassen has included in earlier novels. One thing I did enjoy about this book, however, was the well-planned and extensive use of flashbacks; these scenes and other employed literary techniques helped her to weave a plot that kept me guessing and surprised me more than once.

I really enjoyed this book! Julie Klassen has a way of surprising you with a twist in every ending of her books, and she did just the same in Lady Maybe. The ending had me in tears, actually...the main characters reminded me somewhat of Ruth and Boaz from the Bible. One thing I would prefer when I am reading a Christian romance novel is LESS description of some of the steamier moments. If I wanted that much detail (which I don't) I would just get a secular romance novel. All that said, she tells a great story and definitely weaves in the grace, forgiveness, and mercy of God through the characters in this book.
