“The world seems full of good men—even if there are monsters in it.”
–Bram Stoker, Dracula
England, 1890
Vampires are alive and well in North Yorkshire, leastwise in the minds of the uneducated. Librarian Rosa Edwards intends to drive a stake through the heart of such superstitions. But gossip flies when the mysterious Sir James Morgan returns to his shadowy manor. The townsfolk say he is cursed.
James hates everything about England. The weather. The rumours. The scorn. Yet he must stay. His mother is dying of a disease for which he’s desperately trying to find a cure—an illness that will eventually take his own life.
When Rosa sets out to prove the dark gossip about James is wrong, she discovers more questions than answers. How can she accept what she can’t explain—especially the strong allure of the enigmatic man? James must battle a town steeped in fear as well as the unsettling attraction he feels for the no-nonsense librarian.
Can love prevail in a town filled with fear and doubt?

    Excellent! Loved it!

    Loved it!!! To the point of actually ignoring my chores on a beautiful spring Saturday. I could not put it down! Man of Shadow and Mist is brilliantly written. Michelle Griep’s take on the origins of Dracula and Bram Stoker is so creative! It plays a small part of the story of a misjudged and mistreated man from Transylvania who returns to England to care for his dying mother. Set in England in 1890, this small town and superstitious community believes in the lore about vampires. Librarian Rosa Edwards tries to dispel such superstitions. "But gossip flies when the mysterious Sir James Morgan returns to his shadowy manor. " The author does a splendid job creating the atmosphere and attitudes of the time. From the very beginning, the reader feels immersed and invested in this captivating story! A thread of mystery weaves through this story as well. A wonderful and inspirational gothic tale full of truth and superstitions, light and darkness, and, right or wrong how easy it is to follow the crowd. A sweet friendship, and a beautiful faith journey, especially learning to trust in God, play a role in the lives of both Rosa and Sir James. A self-sacrificing hero and the spunky no-nonsense heroine had me charmed from the start! I highly recommend Man of Shadow and Mist! Thank you to the author and net galley for allowing me to read an early copy. All opinions are my own.
