  • Mrs. Forsyth and Mrs. Blake have a secret; one knows who Sarah Matthews is and the other only thinks she knows. For Sarah Matthews adoption is not an option. She has a deformed hand and looks sickly; in a word she is “unadoptable”. St. Matthews Orphanage is the only home she has ever known and it is likely she will live out her life there. So when wealthy widow Dorothea Blake adopts her out of the blue, Sarah is surprised. Dorothea has a secret (if you can call it a secret; everyone from the scullery maid to the gossiping old biddies know the “secret” except Sarah) - Sarah is her granddaughter and it is only now in her lonely late years she has decided to find her. She adopted Sarah with the idea of telling her that she was her grandmother – at some point. But the fear of what Sarah would think about the whole miserable past and how she came to be in an orphanage holds her back. In a gripping read Lawana Blackwell tells the story of “The Maiden of Mayfair” as Sarah is thrown into various difficulties. This was a great read! It was one of those books one would put aside and not dread coming back to so that it could be finished and done with. Lawana Blackwell developed a host of characters giving each the due attention they deserved. They all had their own impact on the story so they weren’t what you would call filler material. There were these little twists and turns in the plot which made for interesting reading and kept me on my toes. Never a dull moment. I look forward to reading more books by Ms. Blackwell. Five out of five stars.

  • Maiden of Mayfair

    An excellent story with lots of surprises. I couldn't put it down once I started it. Wonderful characters and a really intriguing story. A very good read.

  • Maiden of Mayfair

    The story was very well written,but I was hoping for a book with a little more suspence and adventure. I found the book very sedate and predictable, I much prefer a book that keeps me guessing. Do not miss understand me when I say this because I did find the story very charming and a light read.

  • Very well written!

    Wonderful, believable characters, and plot changes that kept me guessing what was coming next. I’m not usually a fan of stories set in this time period, but I hated for this one to end.
