Publisher's Summary

One woman's search for the truth of her sister's disappearance leads her to deceit and danger in 1893 Chicago.
Rosalind Perry has left her family's rural farm in Wisconsin to work as a housemaid at Sloane House, one of the most elegant mansions in Gilded Age Chicago. But Rosalind is not there just to earn a living and support her family - she's at Sloane House determined to discover the truth about her sister's mysterious disappearance.
Reid Armstrong is the handsome heir to a silver fortune. His family is on the periphery of Chicago's elite because their wealth comes from "new money" obtained from successful mining, but marriage to Veronica Sloane would secure his family's position in society - the lifelong dream of his ailing father.
When Reid begins to realize that Rosalind's life may be in danger, he stops thinking of marriage prospects and concentrates instead on helping Rosalind. Dark things are afoot in Chicago and, he fears, in Sloane House. If he's not vigilant, Rosalind could pay the price.
Set against the backdrop of Chicago's Gilded Age and the1893 World's Fair, Secrets of Sloane House takes us on a whirlwind journey of romance and mystery.

Inspirational fiction should come with a warning!

Years ago, audible used to identify the genre to which books belonged, but no longer.There was nothing in the summary to warn me that this was inspirational fiction, which I avoid whenever possible. Tavia Gilbert is wasted on this drivel. I'm returning this one pronto.

Warning re: rape as part of this story.

What did you like best about this story?

The mention of being Christian and trusting Christ, although it certainly could be drawn out more, and the mystery.


Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She is very distincT and exacT in her pronunciation, which gets to be too much after awhile. Good with different voices. Overall good job.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, until it got to the part about the rape, and his "confession" was disgusting and the "justice" even more disgusting.


Any additional comments?

Not a good ending, left a bad taste in my mouth. Wanted to listen to the other books in this series, but not sure I will now.
