Book Review, “All in Good Time,” Maureen Lang author

all in good time coverAll in Good Time, by Maureen Lang, is the second book in the Gilded Legacy Series.  Having not read the first book in this series, Bees in the Butterfly Garden, I was reluctant to begin this one.  This book, however, stands alone well, drawing the reader into the story quickly and holding his attention to the very end.

In the story, Dessa Caldwell dreams of opening a home to offer shelter and rehabilitation for former prostitutes on the edge of one of Denver’s roughest neighborhoods.  She is thrilled to find herself approved for the loan to do so, even though bank owner Henry Hawkins is obviously reluctant to help her.  But Henry finds himself impressed with Dessa in spite of himself, and both of them hope to keep their past secrets from the other.

I very much enjoyed this book.  Lang develops her characters well, giving them realistic personalities that one can easily relate to.  She included those that Dessa could help as well as those that would obviously refuse her help.  She also addressed the issue that sometimes people are called to help those whom society does not approve of assisting, a fact that remains even today.

I recommend this book to all who enjoy historical fiction

I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
