The Bare Truth is a novel that never lived up to its potential. It had a fine cast of characters but the tension and pacing tended to be uneven.

Heroine Juliette Garrison needs a job, one that will keep her in relative warmth and one that will pay enough to keep her consumptive mother in a decent London flat. Juliette has been fired from many jobs because she just cannot watch her tongue, she smarts off to employers and has to work diligently to control her impulsive nature. She and her mother manage to falsify references and she is hired by the Whitehalls. Juliette likes her job and its duties as a lady's maid

Juliette is alone at a confectioner's shop when she meets hero Thomas Jameson, a dashing American in London looking for investors in his shipping company. Thomas mistakes Juliette for nobility and she does not disabuse him of this but instead plays along. She sees Thomas a few times more in London keeping her fake persona.

Juliette soon discovers a secret about her parentage which opens up new avenues for her. She is haunted by her mother's journal and quite frankly she is doomed to repeat some of her mother's mistakes if she is not careful for she is falling in love with the dashing Thomas.

Thomas is an interesting character with a sad eventful life; he lost his parents at a young age and practically raised himself and is now a fairly successful entrepreneur. Class distinctions don't matter a whit to him but he is not willing to entertain the thought of marriage to Juliette, seems he already broke one woman's heart. I did not particularly like Thomas in parts of this novel, he seemed blissfully unaware or uncaring of the ramifications his actions would have on Juliette. His pursuit of her would only end in her dismissal if the lady of the house discovered their affections and he made no promises to Juliette.

The leads reveal their pasts to each other and these moments of dialogue are quite good but for some reason when they speak of present circumstances or a possible future it lacks the emotional spark that occurs when they retell their childhood memories. Juliette must temper her dialogue which she still lets fly. It's a wonder she was not sacked several times in this novel.

There is a mystery thrown into the last third of this book which came as a surprise. This changes the direction of the leads romance and almost interrupts their emerging feelings. Now they make decisions that are necessary rather than voluntary. Also this couple spends some time apart which does not give the reader an opportunity to see them fall more deeply in love.

Overall this book does have a certain charm to it. Juliette really is an unusual character, she is a champion for the underdog and she is not afraid to stand up to those in authority. She is a bit unsure of herself with the hero but it was not unusual given that she had a somewhat sheltered past. Thomas on the other hand was a bold confident man when it came to wooing Juliette and even though he had those wonderful egalitarian American ideals he still lacked a certain amount of respect and concern for Juliette's plight.

`The Bare Truth' is an engrossing historical romance. Set in late nineteenth century London, this is essentially a rags-to-riches tale. Our heroine is Juliette Garrison, a feisty young woman whose inability to keep her opinions to herself has caused her employers to dispense with her services. However, she lands on her feet when she obtains a job as a lady's maid.

Juliette is a very likeable character whose life has been a constant battle against poverty. The novel opens as she nervously waits for an interview with her prospective employers. We immediately sympathize with her situation and we are drawn into her life; the author, Elizabeth Clarke, does a fine job with the story's lead character.

Disappointingly, however, the same cannot be said for the novel's other main characters. In particular, Juliette's love interest, Thomas Jameson, an American entrepreneur, is sketchily drawn. He has also had a tough upbringing. We are given a tantalizing glimpse of his tragic early life, but we don't find out much beyond that in terms of his back story. Given that his shipbuilding business is in trouble and the crew of one his vessels is missing, his story is alarmingly skimmed over as he pursues Juliette.

Similarly, another potentially interesting character, Sarah Whitehall, the young woman that Juliette is employed to serve as lady's maid, is somewhat wasted. Sarah's life has been the polar opposite of Juliette's. Brought up in opulence, she feels suffocated by her position in life and her apparent lack of freedom. Her sunny disposition makes her a likeable character and I wanted to find out what would happen to her when Juliette left service. It is at this point that the novel sags a little. Sarah is only fleetingly referred to again, having been a relatively major character in the story. I am not suggesting that the last third of the novel is badly written or that it lacks pace. In fact, the excitement and tension build nicely as Juliette pursues her goal (I won't reveal what this is). But, there is a feeling, for me at least, of promise not quite fulfilled.

If the author could have maneuvered events so that Juliette kept her job with Sarah and fleshed out Thomas's life a little more, I think it would have made for a more satisfying read. If you like romances of this sort, then this novel is certainly worth reading and, if it were possible, I'd give it three-and-a-half stars.

Desperate for employment in a reputable home, Juliette Garrison forges letters of reference. She actually succeeds in scoring a fine position, but knows she must keep her big mouth shut as her aristocratic employees are not interested in her thoughts.

However, she soon learns that she is the offspring of a lord and a serving girl. She begins dreaming of asking her sire's family for help, but fears their reaction will cost her current position in which she has food and a bed. When American business man Thomas Jameson meets serving girl Juliette, he likes her spark and spunk. She reciprocates though the cost of a tryst she knows would mean sleeping on the streets as she knows guys like the wealthy Yank marry aristocrats while doodling with English servants.

This is an interesting historical due to the outspoken Juliette whose mouth gets her into one problem spot after another though it is her loquacious vivaciousness that brings her to the attention of the visiting American. The story line is typical of the period as the lead female makes all other women pale in comparison and the brash Yank ignores convention. Sub-genre readers will enjoy this fine late Victorian.
