The Lady of Bolton Hill: A Book Review

About The Book:

When Clara Endicott and Daniel Tremain's worlds collide after twelve years apart, the spark that was once between them immediately reignites into a romance neither of them thought possible.
But time has changed them both.

Daniel is an industrial titan with powerful enemies. Clara is an idealistic journalist determined to defend underprivileged workers.

Can they withstand the cost of their convictions while their hearts--and lives--hang in the balance?

About The Author:

My Review:

As far as romance novels go, The Lady of Bolton Hill is your typical one. However, what made this novel atypical was the exquisite writing style of debut novelist, Elizabeth Camden. The Lady of Bolton Hill oozes romance and historical fiction from page one, but has so many wonderful characters and wonderful story lines, that you can't help but love the book.

Clara, and Daniel both were amazing characters and it is through their lives, as well as those of secondary characters that we are introduced to themes such as romance, suicide and the drug trade of the time, opium. You will laugh and cry as you follow each character's journey of love and forgiveness as well.

A beautiful cover draws you in and the wonderful writing style of Elizabeth Camden will keep your interest to the very end, even including some mystery along with the romance.

A book that I could not put down and highly recommend, this is a perfect read for summer trips to the local pool or beach!

BUY IT: You can purchase The Lady of Bolton Hill at your favorite local bookseller from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group
