Publisher's Summary

Edwardian romance and history gains a twist of suspense.

Rosemary Gresham has no family beyond the band of former urchins that helped her survive as a girl in the mean streets of London. Grown now, they concentrate on stealing high-value items and have learned how to blend into upper-class society. But when Rosemary must determine whether a certain wealthy gentleman is loyal to Britain or to Germany, she is in for the challenge of a lifetime. How does one steal a family's history, their very name?

Peter Holstein, given his family's German blood, writes his popular series of adventure novels under a pen name. With European politics boiling and his own neighbors suspicious of him, Peter debates whether it might be best to change his name for good. When Rosemary shows up at his door pretending to be a historian and offering to help him trace his family history, his question might be answered.

But as the two work together and Rosemary sees his gracious reaction to his neighbors' scornful attacks, she wonders if her assignment is going down the wrong path. Is it too late to help him prove that he's more than his name?

    "Excellent Christian Fiction"
    If you could sum up A Name Unknown in three words, what would they be?

    This book is Christian fiction, but it isn't boring. It is full of spies and the intrigue of world events leading up to WWI and thieves.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Liz Pearce is a really good narrator, and I was so excited to learn she'd done this one. I hope she does the rest of the series!

    "Wonderful Spy Mystery 🌼"

    I wasn't sure what to expect with this book but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters are so endearing with hints of quirkiness. This is a spy style story that showcases lessons learned surrounding relationships with mystery. This book has a Christian theme that runs throughout but it's definitely not preachy. The narration was spot on.....every character was unique and the accents were perfection.

    Definitely will be checking out more in this series.💙

    "Excellent Christian book"

    I was not sure I would like this book at first but as the story progressed the better it got. This was a clean mystery that had me crying, laughing and wondering how it would turn out. I highly recommend this book to one and all!

    "Thrilling!!!"

    I loved listening to this amazing story! I loved the secrets. I loved all the characters, even the grumpy ones. I loved the descriptive settings.

    The author did such an amazing job of delivering the Christian message. I loved how, through letters, Peter communicated his thoughts and feelings. It was exciting to see Rosemary begin to trust something and someone else other than her street smarts.
    The last few chapters we're thrilling but I won't say why. That is something you will have to read/listen to for yourself!

    The narrator was great! She completely brought the story to life.

    I look forward to more from this author and will look for more books from this narrator.

    "Completely Captivating!"

    I absolutely LOVED this book. One of my favorites. It was unpredictable and the character development was fantastic. White did a phenomenal job making the entire story come alive. Liz Pearce was a perfect read!

    "Wonderful Book"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author did a great job with character development, as well as plot development. The heroine & hero This is one of the best books that I have read/listen to here on Audible, (and I have an extensive list of titles). There are references to Christ and Christianity but not too much and helps with character development. I highly recommend this book to those looking for a well-developed, clean romance.

    "fun book that changes the way you think.
    "

    The book has kept me wanting to listen more each day. It brings you into two new worlds and makes me feel at home in both. It has made me think and accept others more fully no matter what their backgrounds may be. Well done!
