Description

What Can a London Opera Star and an Escaped Dartmoor Prisoner Have in Common?

Opera star Maggie Lee escapes her opulent lifestyle when threatened by a powerful politician who aims to ruin her life. She runs off to the wilds of the moors to live in anonymity. All that changes the day she discovers a half-dead man near her house. Escaped convict Oliver Ward is on the run to prove his innocence, until he gets hurt and is taken in by Maggie. He discovers some jewels in her possession--the very same jewels that got him convicted. Together they hatch a plan to return the jewels, clearing Oliver's name and hopefully maintaining Maggie's anonymity.

Review quote

"From the intriguing title to the last romantic lines, The House at the End of the Moor, is one compelling, beauty-for-ashes read. Jewels, an opera star, and a convict on the run serve up romance and suspense in spades. Well done!"
-Laura Frantz, Christy Award-winning author of The Lacemaker



"A wonderfully stormy love story that weaves together danger, intrigue, and a dramatic setting in the English countryside. This page-turning adventure will keep you up at night!"
-Elizabeth Camden, RITA and Christy-Award winning author

"I couldn't put this novel down. It has everything I want: a richly detailed and atmospheric historic setting, robust characters who grow from one chapter to the next, and timeless truths convincingly and naturally portrayed. Not only does The House at the End of the Moor sparkle with wit and wisdom, but the spiritual insight is seamlessly and powerfully delivered. Another impressive offering from Michelle Griep. I can't wait for her next!"
-Jocelyn Green, award-winning author of Veiled in Smoke



"The moors come alive in this tale of hidden souls, dangerous secrets, and burgeoning love. With echoes of the Brontë sisters and the deviousness of Dickens, Michelle Griep has spun a masterful tale of survival and love. I was captivated and did not escape until long after the end."
-Jaime Jo Wright, author of Echoes among the Stones and Christy Award-Winning, The House on Foster Hill

"Michelle Griep is my go-to author for heart-throbbing hunks; independent, feisty heroines; and a story that not only warms, but keeps my adrenaline raging. The House at the End of the Moor is no exception. Danger, suspense, mystery, and romance all wrapped up in a masterfully-written historical novel that not only entertains but teaches a spiritual lesson you'll not soon forget."
-MaryLu Tyndall, award-winning author of The Legacy of the King's Pirates

"How can a tale be both eerie and yet filled with such light and hope? The House at the End of the Moor pulls you into another time and place, completely atmospheric and full of everything that is great about Gothic-style fiction. Griep uses meticulous research as well as her signature wit to craft a tale that will leave you feeling as if you have trod the moors and scaled the tors of southwest England with Oliver and Maggie."
-Erica Vetsch, author of The Lost Lieutenant



"This sharply clever adventure captured me from gritty opening to brilliant finale! Griep has crafted a wonderfully terrible plight for her characters with a stunning conclusion and a romance that warms right through the pages. A true masterpiece of vivid creativity!"
-Joanna Davidson Politano, author of Lady Jayne Disappears and other historical mysteries
