Ms. Politano once again exceeded my expectations in "Finding Lady Enderly!” This book is a work of art. At face value it’s a beautiful Christian historical romance. But interwoven throughout is a beautiful allegory.
"Finding Lady Enderly" by Joanna Davidson Politano is like a unique fairy tale, with a “Cinderella” and “My Fair Lady” feel to it. There are also a lot of allusions to classic literature and a permeating Gothic tone to the story. The setting is in a mysterious Abbey that contains an old library. Like I mentioned above, Ms. Politano weaves in an allegory about one’s relationship with God; specifically about knowing who we are in Him, letting Him tell us who we are and what our real name is.
I also really enjoyed the spunky heroine Raina and the faithful hero, Sully. Raina loves adventures. Throughout the story, she learns more about who she is and whose she is. One of my favorite parts of the book is how Raina and Sully could only really communicate with one another through secret messages in books. It is so romantic and I love how Ms. Politano picked some beautiful quotes from classic literature for the star crossed lovers to express themselves to one another.
"Finding Lady Enderly" is a gripping story that you won’t want to miss!
Content: This is a clean read. Some examples of the content are: it’s implied that a woman is afraid a man will take advantage of her (but he doesn’t); characters drink alcohol.
Rating: I give this book 5 stars!

About the Author:
I’m a work-from-home mom of two fun and adventurous littles and we’ll soon be homeschooling. I married my hero Vince, who is my love and my polar opposite. I write, he tears it up with the red pen. I break cars and other mechanical things, he puts them back together. He’s nailed the “speak the truth” thing, and I bring the “in love” part. But the real spark to our marriage is that he does not like chocolate and I… like it a normal amount. We love and live from our little house in the woods near Lake Michigan.
