Synopsis

Some families are marked by genuine affection and warmth. Verity Sterling was not born into one of them. From the time she was a child, she knew she would be of no use to her father until he could offer her hand to the highest bidder. When her mother died giving birth to a second daughter, Maryanne, Verity decided that her purpose would be raising her sister. After seventeen years of devotion, Verity is stunned when Maryanne chooses to obey their father and enter the dangerous whirl of London society. Choosing to sever ties with her father and, as a result, Maryanne, Verity finds herself a spinster alone in the world. She settles in London and apprentices herself to a dressmaker, refusing to acknowledge the depth of pain caused by her sister's betrayal. The past, however, never lies dormant for long. Two years later, Maryanne writes to her in desperate need of help. Determined to save her sister the way she could not before, Verity hires private investigator Jonathan Hayes. Together, they embark on a search for Maryanne. It quickly becomes apparent that there is much more afoot than Maryanne's letter said. Soon the question is not whether Verity and Jonathan will be able to save her sister, but whether any of them will make it through alive. "Kelsey Greye weaves an unlikely romance, a shocking scandal and a compelling mystery into a breath-taking story that keeps you guessing, and giggling, until the very last page." -Chrissy Dennis, author of The Lion Cubs, the 2011 Word Alive Press Fiction Contest Winner. "Kelsey Greye lets us into the lives of characters who live and breathe and make us believe. The themes she explores are timeless and consequential reminding us that while times do change, the inherent desire of men and women to overcome evil despite rampant apathy, ultimately does not. This is a book that will draw you into another era and will leave you longing to remain there." -Shannon Sutherland Smith, journalist for PostMedia. About the Author: Kelsey Greye grew up and lives in western Canada. She is currently working toward a graduate degree in Theological Studies and loves to teach and speak in her local church. An avid reader, her favorite authors are Charlotte Bronte, Agatha Christie and Grace Livingston Hill. This probably explains her affinity for rainy days, minor-key music and a strong cup of tea. A Thread of Truth is her second novel and a companion to The Pursuit of Miss Charlotte Edwards.
