Random Novel / Lady of Bolton Hill

Don't you just love Summer? I sure do. I love looking out the window and seeing the sun, hearing the wind chimes and sounds of nature. Plus, it's nice to be able to take a swim after being hot all day. When you swim in a pond you just can't do that in other seasons. Too cold...

I just finished another of Elizabeth Camden's books and, like all of them, I LOVED it! I recently reviewed Against the Tide, a story of Alexander Banebridge and Lydia Pallas. This book, The Lady of Bolton Hill, is about Clara Endicott and Daniel Tremain but "Bane" from the afore mentioned book makes his first appearance here.  

Now, onto the review!
Book Title: The Lady of Bolton Hill
Author: Elizabeth Camden

Description:
Female journalists are rare in 1879, but American born Clara Endicott has finally made a name for herself with her provocative articles championing London's poor. When the backlash from her work forces a return home to Baltimore, Clara finds herself face to face with a childhood sweetheart who is no longer the impoverished factory worker she once knew. In her absence, Daniel Tremain has become a powerful industry giant and Clara finds him as enigmatic as ever. However, Daniel's success is fueled by resentment from past wounds and Clara's deeply held beliefs about God's grace force Daniel to confront his own motives. When Clara's very life is endangered by one of Daniel's adversaries, they must face a reckoning neither of them ever could have foreseen.

My Review:
Elizabeth Camden is a gifted author who skillfully weaves together a beautiful romance, adventure, and historical facts. Every book that I've read of hers I've immensely enjoyed; and I've read every single one she's written.

You can't help but love both of the main characters of this book, even with their flaws and mistakes. Clara is an energetic and caring person. She'd do anything for Daniel; even try to help him overcome his thirst for revenge. Daniel comes across to everyone as gruff and insensitive but Clara knows the real him; a man who is passionate about protecting and providing for those he cares about.

I love it when an author writes such an enthralling book that you feel you are in the story too, right alongside the hero and heroine. The Lady of Bolton Hill was this way and I felt I was present in each of the scenes. I guess you could say I've now been in jail, had my house burnt down, and kidnapped. :) Pretty adventurous life, right?

If it's not obvious by my before words I'll say it now, I would recommend this book for fellow readers; especially those who love historical fiction.

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  1. That is a gorgeous cover! My two favorite covers that I've seen pop up here are this one and the 'Cinderella'- which post I couldn't find. :-/

    1. I think what makes both those covers so pretty are the gorgeous dresses. :D I believe the Cinderella post you're thinking of is "Fairy Tales / The Captive Maiden".
