The Man with a Mask

Third book of the Spencer's Mill Series

Derek March is a handsome young man in 1895, newly arrived in Spencer’s Mill. All he wants is to settle down with a wife who will care for him, give him a family, and allow him to live a normal, quiet life. He becomes involved in a promising romance with the granddaughter of Susannah and Christian Wolf, prominent residents. But he has a past, and he’s still doing a balancing act. Is he the old Derek, or the new one? Can he keep his past and his present separate by the force of his own will, ignoring the God his parents taught him about as a child? Investigator Phineas Fletcher takes a role.


In this gripping tale, the protagonist embarks on a journey filled with challenges and twists that lead to an unexpected and poignant conclusion. Brace yourself for an emotional rollercoaster as the main character faces a fate that defies the conventional notions of a happy ending. It's a story that will linger in your thoughts long after you turn the last page.
