I love Rachel Fordham’s stories, the way she captures the reader from page one. A Lady In Attendance is a story of the power of transformation, and redemption. Hazel, A Lady in Attendance/dental assistant to Gilbert who is the town dentist. Hazel has spent the last fiver years in a girls reformatory for stealing, which she stands firm that she is innocent. Once out of the reformatory, Hazel needs a job and lies about her name to Gilbert about the truth.
As their relationship/friendship begins to grow, Hazel’s guilt gets to her. Once she decides to tell Gilbert about her past and story. A beautiful story that captures true friendship in which neither ask for anything in return. A simple act of forgiveness and acceptance of God’s love in the manner that we ask for the same.
