Overview

For unwed mother Nell Lillington, 1876 Chicago—and her new wealth—offer the promise of longed-for independence. She dreams of a place in society for her daughter Sarah and contentment for her friend Tess. Yet how can she settle in a town where she’s far too likely to run into Martin Rutherford and his glittering, faithless wife, Lucetta? Can she resist her love for Martin for Sarah’s sake?


Martin was doubtless joking when he told Nell that if she got herself mixed up with a murderer for the third time, he’d disown her. But when Martin himself is arrested for murder, Nell’s dreams appear to be swallowed up in the new web of secrets she constructs to help him. Secrets that threaten to alienate Tess, Sarah, and even Martin . . .


The third book in the House of Closed Doors series will take you to a Chicago teeming with opportunistic new Americans, luxury-loving merchant princes and hard-hearted denizens of the underworld.

THE THING I LOVED ABOUT THIS SERIES WAS NELL' S SELF DETERMINATION AND HER LOVE AND DEVOTION TO SARA AND BESS, HOWEVER SHE LOST ALL OF THAT IN THE 3RD BK IN DESPERATION TO SAVE AND RISK ALL FOR A MAN WHO WOULD HARDLY SPEAK TO HER OR TOUCH HER AND LEFT HER FOR 6 MONTHS BECAUSE HE WAS OVER STRESSED ABOUT A BAD SITUATION HE PUT HIMSELF IN! YEAH YEAH I KNOW WOMEN REALLY DO THAT , BUT I WISH SHE HAD STAYED TRUE TO THE CHARACTER IN THE 1ST 2 BKS. AFTER VENTING .....I WILL SAY I DID REALLY ENJOY THESE BOOKS AND WILL CERTAINLY READ MORE OF THIS AUTHOR.

Loved this series and adore this author. Beautifully written with colorful details and delightful dialogue. The characters are wonderfully developed and the story line fascinating and rich. This author can write and keeps you riveted to her stories with a beautiful turn of a phrase. Thankfully no need for torrid love scenes or rough language, just an expertly written story that, once I started, I absolutely couldn't put aside.

Jane Steen is now one of my new favorite authors. I stumbled on this series, read it straight through, then was sorry because it was gone. I'd recommend it to any of my friends. The time period research is spot on, which I always notice and the characters come across as real people. You can't ask more than that.

I look forward to Nellie's next chapter in life. The 1800's is my favorite time period. Her story is full of twist and turns. So easy to see it all in my imagination.

Astonishing, one of the best I have read. On the order of Gone with the Wind. Would make a great movie. A wonderful author, so well written, with a host of perfect characters.
