Book Review: The Lady of Bolton Hill by Elizabeth Camden

Available @
Fishpond AU 
& Amazon
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?
 
Elizabeth Camden’s debut book "The Lady of Bolton Hill" was a great read. She has given her readers a lovely story filled with conflicted characters. The main one being Daniel Tremain. I struggled to like Daniel for much of the book. His need for revenge and his unwillingness to even discuss matters of faith made him difficult to like. Having said that, haven’t we all met someone who was consumed with one thing or another and as a result couldn’t see the truth in front of them? Daniel’s journey to God was one that I felt was genuine and when the book ended, I knew he was right with God, yet he still battled with anger and the need for control.

Clara and Daniel spark and clash together beautifully. I like that Elizabeth has given them genuine conflict that can seriously make or break a romance. She has gifted Clara with a compassionate, honest, caring heart and combined it with strength and resiliency born from her faith in Christ. Together these traits have made her a great journalist and a truth seeker – sometimes to the pain of the ones she loves. 

Overall, this is a great book. I’m eagerly awaiting Elizabeth’s next book.
