Publisher's Summary

One final cry - "God almighty, help us!" - and suddenly Hannah's world shifted violently, and a blinding collision scattered her mind and shook her bones. Then came the pain, the freezing water, and a hand reached for hers before all faded into darkness.

When Hannah awakes in a warm and welcoming room she has never seen before - tended to by kind, unfamiliar faces - most of her memory has been swept away but not all. She recalls fragments of the accident. She remembers a baby. And a ring on her finger reminds her of a lie. But most of all, there is a secret. And in this house of strangers, she can trust no one but herself to keep it.

Another great one by Julie Klassen

Wish Julie Klassen had more books on Audible - she never disappoints. Great characters, has morals without being preachy and love that plot wasn't completely predictable. Love to finish a book feeling happy, not tragic, which is what this author does :)

Hard to put down

A great story on forgiveness. Characters stayed true to their created personalities. The author did a great job of showing Christian values without being preachy. The reason I would give 4 stars instead of 5 is that I felt the leading character was not able to capture the heart of the reader like she ought to, and perhaps a bit too much passionate detail involved in love scenes.

Excited, enthralled, and a bit dissapointed....

What did you love best about Lady Maybe?

I was on the edge of my seat the whole time!

What did you like best about this story?

The ending was really surprising which almost never happens anymore! Well done Miss Klassen :) Of course I also loved the reality of the characters' struggles and the redemption story within.

How could the performance have been better?

I did not care for the narration.... there was very little change of inflection and a lot of the characters sounded the same. I may just be spoiled after hearing narrators like Simon Prebble and Elizabeth Jasicki... but it definitely affected how much I enjoyed the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I really thought the story was very good! It was hard for me to separate the story from the narration unfortunately...

Quite disappointed

I love Julie Klassen. I have read or listened to most of her books and have always loved them. But it's almost as if she didn't write this book. There's way too much "admiring the shape of her bosom" and "looking longingly at her bare legs". Isn't this supposed to be a Christian fiction novel? I am really very disappointed. In addition the narrator sounded like a robot. Very little fluctuation in her voice.

Kept me guessing til the end!

Loved this story! This was my second story by this author. While I enjoyed my first listen, the Pembroke Park one, it came no where near the caliber of Lady Maybe. It reminds me a bit of Flowers from the Storm by Laura Kinsale in its drama and seriousness; but it was not quite as deep or emotional. It's really difficult for me to go into the plot without giving anything away, so I won't.

I suppose this book could be called a mystery but it's different in that as soon as the twist and turns and questions come up, they are answered fairly soon. And then a new one pops up. The whole story isn't spent trying to solve one mystery. Also, potential romances abound (the most important part!) and they have their own twists and turns.

The heroine had a good intuition (didn't do stupid things most of us would never do). This heroine's interests were not about women's rights and she did not balk at the conventions of the day in every chapter. She actually had a moral compass as well as some faults. She even tried to overcome these weaknesses.

If you happen to be looking for the hot and heavy steamy scenes, you won't find them here. I think the author prefers that the characters have their privacy. I like steamy scenes, but they are not a deal breaker for me. And the depths of emotions of the main characters are such that I don't think you'll miss them.

With most historical romance novels, one can usually tell how the book will end. Of course, we realize that the fun is in the journey. However, Lady Maybe kept me guessing. I was delighted to realize that I had no idea how it was going to turn out until the end! I highly recommend this story.

Toe tapping with boredom.

I admit I'm just under two hours into it. At least that's what the counter says... did I fall asleep? I'm still waiting for a actual story to begin.... something..... please.....
Nevermind, I'm not going to be able to get through it since I'm already too bored!

NARRATOR: It's not HER fault, she's very good!

Keeps you guessing

I purchased this audiobook several months ago, and finally got around to listening. Before I started, I looked up the back-of-the-novel plot summaries online, to help me keep track of who was who in the first minutes of listening. Imagine my surprise, then, when many online reviews were scathing because this book was not as Jesus-centric as Ms. Klassen's usual fare! Oops.....While I don't mind a bit of religion if it's part of the story, I absolutely do not want to listen to a book that preaches its way through the plot, with gratuitous "lessons" and other annoying overly-evangelical tripe.

So I began listening nervously, but THIS BOOK WAS EXCELLENT. there is some religion, yes, but it doesn't detract from the story. (However, since Klassen fans apparently think this wasn't her norm....I will not be purchasing more by this author.)

Who's the baby's father? Who will Hannah choose in the end? What's actually up with crazy Mariana? WHO IS THE BABY'S FATHER?!? This story contained several excellent plot twists, likable characters, and fantastic narration by Ms. Maarleveld. (I will listen to more of hers, for sure!)

I highly recommend this book.

Way too much drama !

The first half of the story is good for this type of story, but the second half went downhill fast. Totally melodramatic and overwrought. ( admittedly, this isn't my usual type of reading). The narration was good and is probably the only reason I stuck with it to the end.
