“The Doctor’s Deceit” is the follow on book from “Vanguard of Hope”, set in the 1800’s it deals with a society trying to protect innocent victims of sexual abuse, rape and prejudice. I really liked this book and the way the author has developed the story from a set of diaries. The Sapphire Brigade do their best to protect victims and go further than the police in dishing out punishment to those who have abused. It highlights the length to which people will go to help others. Another good book from author Kathy Steinemann.
This is what Kathy said about her books;
“I am going to keep producing these books in an attempt to give victims a voice. The next book will have a section containing letters from victims to the Sapphire Brigade. If any victims of such abuse in today’s world want to get in touch with me, I would be happy to include their wish lists. The letters might have to be re-worded somewhat in keeping with the time frame (late 19th century early 20th century). For such people the writing process is giving them a forum to vent their frustrations, because their stories are real.”
If anyone wants to get in touch with Kathy, contact me and I’ll pass on your details.
This is the cover reveal for Kathy’s second book in her series which is due out 1st May 2013. The Doctor’s Deceit, Sapphire brigade Book 2. I hope to bring you a review of this book later in the month.
