She’s willing to do anything to follow her plan.

Debutante Alice Knight is ready for her first social season in London. She’s determined to impress society and her mother with an affluent match, at last escaping her past and embracing a future of her own making.

Peter Strauss, an American reporter visiting England, isn’t exactly what Alice had in mind. However, his friendship proves invaluable as Alice faces the challenges of her debut. Almost immediately, she attracts the attention of a well-born gentleman—perfect save for the simple fact that he’s not a Christian.

The life she longs for is finally at her fingertips, but between her own heart and the convictions of her faith, she isn’t sure she ought to grasp it.

About the Author

Kellyn Roth is a Christian historical women’s fiction & romance author from North-Eastern Oregon who has independently published multiple novels, the most notable being The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy series. You should definitely call her Kell.

Kell lives on family-owned property outside an unmemorable but historical town with her parents, two little brothers, arbitrary cat, precious border collies, a dozen cows, and lots of chickens. She also possesses a classic, vintage aesthetic which does not at all speak to her country girl side, but such is life.

When not writing, Kell likes to blog, teach writing to her various students, have day jobs which allow her to keep her car properly insured, and spend lavish amounts of money on Dairy Queen french fries. She also likes to talk about Keira Knightley and her own books way too much.

Meet Peter Strauss!

Full Name: Peter William Strauss

Personality Type: MBTI INFP (“The Mediator”), Enneagram 9w1 (“The Peacemaker”)

Who He Is: Peter is an American author and reporter who travels to England on an assignment from his editor. Kind-hearted, observant, and empathetic to the point of causing himself personal pain over the woes of others, Peter spends most of his time trying to make other peoples’ lives easier.

Appearance: Peter has honey-brown eyes and light brown/dark blond hair. He’s about 5’8”, will probably have a round tummy sooner rather than later because cake tastes so good, and is entirely content to be mussed at all times. He’s always losing his glasses, unfortunately.

Family: Peter’s parents are Chris and Lilli Strauss. His father was a poor German immigrant while his mother came from a wealthy Philadelphian family, the Strattons. Peter grew up in Philadelphia, though he spent some time in Virginia with his mother’s family. Peter has five younger siblings: Andrew, Caroline, Dahlia, and two who were lost to miscarriage. Riley Farjon, a cousin on his mother’s side, is his best friend.

Random Facts about Peter:

  • Peter officially became a Christian at the age of four after accidentally killing a bee. Well, the bee stung him, so the bee sort of committed suicide, but Peter just couldn’t see it that way. His mother found that the only way to get him to stop crying was to assure him that the bee went to Heaven. Later, in his teens, Peter stopped believing in Bee Heaven. However, he continued believing in real Heaven.
  • Having been an only child for nearly the first seven years of his life, Peter is more of a friend to his parents. The good news is he’s fairly mature. The bad news is that he sometimes struggles with feeling the need to take on the troubles of his more emotional mother and his more reserved father.
  • Peter was named for both his grandfathers—Peter Stratton and Wilhelm Strauss.
  • Peter’s mother uses the endearment “my fortune” rather than a normal “my darling.” He secretly resents it, but how could he ever tell his dear mama?
  • Peter loves cats and dogs equally because they both have unique but interesting personality types.
  • Peter’s favorite genre to read is actually romance, though he also enjoys the occasional more “romantic” (as termed in the era) adventure. He writes primarily character-driven adventure and children’s fiction (for his little friends and relations).
  • Though a lover of music, Peter never got much beyond the basics with his efforts are playing piano.
  • Apparently there’s an older actor named Peter Strauss. No relation, and the author still hasn’t watched anything featuring said actor.
  • Peter would die for a stranger. However, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have boundaries. To the contrary, once you cross him (in a way cruel enough that he is unable to immediately let go of it), it can be very hard for him to move on.
