About the Book
Book: A Lady in Attendance
Author: Rachel Fordham
Release date: June 1, 2021
Five years in a New York state reformatory have left a blemish on Hazel’s real name. So when she takes a job as Doctor Gilbert Watts’s lady in attendance in 1898, she does so under an alias. In the presence of her quiet and pious employer, Hazel finds more than an income. She finds a friend and a hope that if she can set her tarnished past in order, she might have a future after all.
As Gilbert becomes accustomed to the pleasant chatter of his new dental assistant, he can’t help but sense something secretive about her. Perhaps there is more to this woman than meets the eye. Can the questions that loom between them ever be answered? Or will the deeds of days gone by forever rob the future of its possibilities?
Rachel Fordham pens a tender tale of a soft-spoken man, a hardened woman, and the friends that stand by them as they work toward a common purpose–to expunge the record of someone society deemed beyond saving–and perhaps find love along the way.
A Lady in Attendance Excerpt 2
Her explanation left him puzzled. What in the world was she doing up so late? Was she with someone? Their first meeting left him with the impression that she had no interest in courtship. Was it a farce? Or had she been trying to tell him she already had someone? Suddenly that first conversation seemed fuzzy in his mind, and he could not remember the words she’d used. A knot rose in his throat. Swallowing
was normally an easy task, but now, at this moment, it was presenting a challenge. Perplexed and somewhat afraid of his own feelings, he walked away from the waiting room. She was a free and
independent woman capable of choosing who she spent her time with.
“We have three more patients scheduled for the morning. I’m going to work on my notes,” he said as he put some distance between them.
She hobbled after him. “Wait.”
Stopping, he turned back toward her and, breaking character, blurted, “What happened to your feet?”
“You’ve become so bold.” She laughed while limping.
“Your shoes?” He looked at her scuffed boots. “Do you need new ones?”
“I walked too far, that’s all. No need to worry.” Hazel looked at the day’s schedule. “It should be an easy morning. I’m glad. We’ve been so busy lately, and it’ll be a nice change of pace.”
“Yes, I thought so too,” he said absently, still looking at her feet. “As I am your employer, you will tell me if you are in need, will you not?”
