CFRB Tour: The Duke's Handmaid


The Duke's Handmaid
by Caprice Hokstad


This month, CFRB presents The Duke's Handmaid by Caprice Hokstad.

About the Book:
Slavery. Loyalty. Torture. Passion. Betrayal.

All the young outcast wanted was security in a world that destroyed her family and left her despised and rejected. Can the simple farmgirl find a new family through voluntary enslavement to the duke's household? Not if the prejudiced and conniving duchess has her way!

Crafted in a highly precise writing style so smooth it slips right from the page into your imagination, the fantastical story world of The Duke's Handmaid examines timeless social issues that inform global justice today.

My Thoughts:
First of all, I am reading this book in PDF format, and it is the first book that I have ever read like that. Admittedly, it takes a little getting used to, and I am reading much slower than usual. I am still in the middle of it, but it drew me right in. It may take me a while to finish it because we share the computer and spend more time outside in the summer, but I like it enough to stick with it despite the fact that it is slower for me to read this way!


About the Author:
Caprice was born in San Diego, California. She attended Baylor University in Waco, Texas. She currently lives in Southern California, sharing a mobile home with her husband, three children, varying numbers of pet rats, a leopard gecko, a tankful of guppies, a cat, and a dog. Caprice home-schools one of her children, writes SeaQuest fanfiction, and sews musical theater and Renaissance costumes in her spare time.
