Challenging The Conventions
Behind The Scenes by Jen Turano is a delightfully amusing Christian historical romantic mystery and I really enjoyed it. It is the first book in the Apart From The crowd series and I cannot wait for the subsequent books.
Jen Turano’s books are always entertaining and amusing. Her heroine in Behind The Scenes is a very modern and unconventional lady for her time. She gets in to some amusing scrapes. With her attitude of “I do prefer using a pistol to my fists,” she is indeed an unusual woman in the nineteenth century.
There is a social conscience running throughout. “Simply because one comes from wealth does not mean one should abandon their thrifty principles.” Wealth is not to be squandered but used to do good.
