    I had the privilege of reading Gatehaven by Molly Noble Bull. W

    I had the privilege of reading Gatehaven by Molly Noble Bull. Wow - this story was suspenseful with a hint of romance. It was set in the older times and definitely took me back many years to a different time period than what we experience now. The author did a great job transporting me back to a period when ladies were protected from coarse speech, questionable subjects, and treated much more daintily than women are viewed in modern society.

    Wow - the author was able to weave a cute romance while revealing the truth between light and darkness. The subject matter was very deep but done in a wonderful way - revealing occurrence in the supernatural without trying to traumatize the reader. It definitely was a book that made me stop and think…and consider what I can do in my life and how to teach my children to ask protection from the supernatural that occurs all around us.

    I was honored to get to read this book and would recommend it to people who enjoy romance, suspense, and learning more from a Biblical point of view what God has to say about the light and darkness that reside together in this world.

    I received this book for free from the author in exchange for my honest review.

    Gatehaven
    By Molly Noble Bull
    Publ: Creation House c.2014

    Set in Scotland, England, and Carolina in 1784 this is the story of Shannon
    Aimee, her family, an English Earl, and a displaced Frenchman.
    Shannon is the daughter of French Huguenots that have moved to Scotland seeking safety from a Frenchmen, Leon Picard, who has vowed revenge on her mother Rachel Aimee. She is enamored by Edward Wellesley, Lord Northon, who comes to town and woos her. He convinces her that she should come to England with him to meet his mother and be groomed by her so that she can take her place as his wife more easily.
    Shannon’s family and friends try to persuade her that this is not a wise move on her part, but she will not be dissuaded. As a compromise she agrees to be accompanied by Edward’s aunt Miss Foster and her childhood friend Ian Colquhoun who is going to England to study with Vicar Steen in a town near Edward’s home of Gatehaven. Unknown to Shannon her brother Peter is traveling to England as well so he and Ian can watch out for her safety because despite what Shannon says no one who care for her truly trusts the Earl.
    Shannon arrives in England and finds that nothing is as she expected it to be. She is not accepted by the Earl’s family; he is not treating her as he did in Scotland; and strange things are happening in Gatehaven that cause her to fear for her safety.
    Mary Noble Bull has pulled all the best parts of a gothic novel together with edge-of-your-seat spiritual conflicts to produce a book you won’t want to put down until the last page. Then you still want more.
    I highly recommend this book for fans of gothic novels and suspense novels. The fact that the faith factor is so well mixed in with the storyline is a wonderful plus.
    I was provided a copy of this book for my unbiased review

    Gatehaven, by Molly Noble Bull, was an interesting surprise. T

    Gatehaven, by Molly Noble Bull, was an interesting surprise. Though billed as a Christian Gothic story for young readers, which I do not usually enjoy, I enjoyed it. Here I need to admit, however, that I am not a pre-teen or teen any longer. In my younger days I would have found the story tense. Though the plot involves the stalking and capture of Shannon, a naïve young lady, by grown men with dishonorable intent to her and her family Bull handles the situations appropriately for her younger audience. The two heroes, Ian and Peter, do their best to save and help Shannon see the danger and to see what love really is before it is too late but, to their frustration, she learns the hard way. Bull cites a lot of Bible scriptures, which I really enjoyed, but they could be irritating to someone who believes differently than I do. I found that for the most part the scriptures fit with the plot where they are used.
    Shannon is sometimes very irritating in her naivety, but not unlike some friends I grew up with. The characters Peter and Ian were believable up to and including their frustration with Shannon. The protagonists were a bit shallow but did the job well enough to carry the storyline. Cally, a minor character but a catalyst in the plot, had a depth that I enjoyed. All of the characters Bull presents had a purpose in fleshing out the storyline so that by the end of the novel closure was realized.
    I will read Gatehaven again and will recommend it to Christian preteen and young teen readers. Like the setting, Victorian era, I found the style and the moral of the storyline obvious but tasteful. Good job Ms. Bull.

    They say the first line is most important of all and this novel

    They say the first line is most important of all and this novel has a great first line: Monsieur Ettienne Gabeau wan't his real name.

    I don't usually read Gothic novels, they're not my thing, but as this one is also a murder mystery, I thought I'd give it a whirl. The story's dark side ventures into a world where Christians fend off those involved in the most heinous demonic occult practices. This novel ventures into an area of darkness depicting a villain who is completely overtaken by demonic forces and who hates the French Huguenots who are Bible believing Christians.

    The fortress-like structure, Gatehaven is cloaked in mystery. Some say there is a blood red gate, not its main entrance, but inside the mansion, which the house is named for. While others claim this inside gate does not exist. The heroine, Shannon Aime sees two women at an upstairs window as she arrives, but then they might be apparitions, or an over active imagination. Some say young women have been brought to Gatehaven, never to be seen again. The creep-out factor is high. If you are a lover of eerie Gothic novels that don't shy away from delving into the darkness, this one is for you. The story is balanced and put into Christian perspective by via the narrative of the young hero, Ian Colquhoun, a vicar's apprentice studying to become a clergyman...and also by the use of Scripture brought into the story.

    I had read Molly Noble Bull¿s book Sanctuary a few years back an

    I had read Molly Noble Bull’s book Sanctuary a few years back and very much enjoyed the story of a couple forced to marry out of necessity and trying to get to safety as they were being persecuted for being Huguenots. This is the continuing story of that couple and involves their son and daughter who are now adults. Thinking she is in love, Shannon goes against her parent’s wishes and those of Ian, the man who truly loves her and journeys to Gatehaven the mansion owned by the Earl who professes his love for her. Ian decides to journey with her as a favor to his pastor to find out more information about the murder of the pastor’s cousin many years previous and also to keep an eye on Shannon. Peter, Shannon’s brother also comes along though secretly so as not to anger his sister. While all three are away from home, strange and disturbing things are happening at Gatehaven and also at the Neighboring French man’s home who has a disturbing fascination with Shannon. There is a lot happening in this story and Shannon does not expect the evil or the unwelcome she receives at Gatehaven. I really liked Ian and Peter, however, Shannon was such a headstrong, stubborn girl that at times I just wanted to shake her. I wonder if some of this could have been avoided if her parents had told them more about their past and experiences. However, Shannon going through this ordeal does change her character for the better. This story is a bit creepy and makes for a wonderful gothic read, yet it has the truth of scripture interwoven in it as well. The author graciously provided me a copy of the book. The opinions are my own.

    This book is a mix of the dark spiritual dangers and the good of

    This book is a mix of the dark spiritual dangers and the good of Biblical foundations in the never ending world fight.  Shannon, the heroine, is deceived by the earl of Gatehaven to come and be his bride. She soon realizes Gatehaven, the residence of the earl, is much more than it seems. Her lifelong friend, Ian, tags along to make sure she stays safe. There are a wonderfully intertwined group of characters that make this tale a fantastic suspense story of good and evil. Many dangers and mysterious people surround everything that is Gatehaven.  Will the cult win and take the innocent Christians down with them? Will they learn enough from the Bible to help them stand strong and be safe? Is there a happy ending?
    I was so impressed by the depth of Biblical verses and truth intermingled into the story. I learned much for myself - just reading all the insight! The author has done her research and given the characters such great foundations to stand on going through strong tests of their faith.  I highly recommend this dark mysterious suspense novel - you will not be disappointed and your faith will be made stronger!
    I received the book for an honest review.

    Evil has its hour, but the end of the Story reveals a Victor whose atoning sacrifice makes redemption possible.
    This is the central theme of the Bible, and also of this gothic tale of intrigue and wickedness in high places, and of rescue and
    restoration. 

    Rachel Shannon Aimee is the beautiful and spirited daughter of French Huguenots settled in Scotland. She has an honorable
    admirer in Ian Colquhoun, a minister in training. Shannon becomes the unwitting target of two conspiring men bent on evil: the young,
    charming Earl of Northon, and Etienne Gabeau, aka Leon Picard, a wealthy old man looking to satiate his lust for revenge against
    Shannon’s mother for scorning Leon’s advances many years ago. Ian and Shannon’s brother Peter would save Shannon from a big
    mistake—trusting the handsome earl’s sudden proposal of marriage. Their journey takes Shannon, Ian and Peter Aimee to England
    where the young lass is set to become the earl’s bride, or perhaps meet a nefarious fate.

    What transpires will send chills racing down the reader’s spine, and keep them riveted on the edge of their seat, as mysteries are
    uncovered and evil is exposed by the light of revelation. Enemies and allies are drawn up in an epic battle of good and evil, while the
    plot twists and turns through narrow escapes and brushes with cultish meetings and the supernatural. So much more than
    entertainment, this story brings truth and balance to a cultural fascination with spiritualism. Written with skill, keen insight and
    wisdom, this story will please readers of Frank Peretti, Tedd Dekker, and all fans of supernatural thrillers.

    I give this book 4 and a half stars
