Romance and Drama to Capture the Heart in This Emotional Tale

The last thing Libby Sawyer and her father expected upon their return from their summer home was to find strangers inhabiting a house that had been in their family for decades. Widower Michael Dobrescu brought his family from Romania to the town of Colden, Massachusetts with a singular purpose: to claim the house willed to him long ago. Since neither party has any intention of giving up their claim, a fierce legal battle ensues between the two families.

When important documents go missing from the house, Libby suspects Michael is the culprit. Determined to discover the truth behind the stolen papers, Libby investigates, only to find more layers of mystery surrounding Michael and his family. Despite their rivalry, Libby finds herself developing feelings for this man with the mysterious past.

As a decision about the house looms in the courts, Libby must weigh the risks of choosing to remain loyal to her family or give her heart to a man whose intentions and affections are less than certain.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In 1879, Libby Sawyer and her father return from their summer vacation to find strangers living in their house. Widower Michael Dobrescu has come to Colden, MA, from Romania with the intention of taking over the home that was willed to his father. Libby's father, however, has no intention of handing his family homestead over to a stranger. Documents that could determine the outcome of the legal battle between the two families are missing, forcing Libby to play detective. Unconvinced that Michael and his family are the thieves, she soon finds herself unexpectedly drawn to the foreigner. VERDICT Camden's second evangelical historical romance (after The Lady of Bolton Hill) successfully combines suspenseful intrigue with a lively, unpredictable love story. Recommend this one to readers of M.L. Tyndall or T. Davis Bunn for the same genre blending. [20,000-copy first printing.]

SUCH a GREAT book! There were moments it moved a little slow... but wow... a great break from the sometimes monotonous plots in this genre. One of the BEST books I've read in a long time. It's in my top ten!

I devour books. I often read 2-3 books a week. But i have developed the nasty habit of racing thru the latter parts of books because i basically have figured out how it would end. NOT THIS BOOK! I was captivated all the way thru and felt no need to race ahead. I would highly recommend. Wish there was a sequel....i want more!

It is 4:30 am. I have been reading non stop. This book was astounding. It chronicles not only what is good in life, but the nasty underbelly that life sometimes has. When I want to read a gritty real life story so well written to bring tears to my eyes, I pick up a book my Elizabeth Camden.

Folks, when you review a book, PLEASE do not give the plot away. Just say if you liked it, loved it or hated it and why....but please stop writing a synopsis because it spoils it for future readers!

As beautiful a read as conveyed by its cover, you will not want to lay this story aside... lovely ~ intriguing people and places Elizabeth once again scores highly with her newest novel. Excerpts available by clicking here... excellent attention to details and realistic characterization filled with abundant secrets result in a beautiful historic story. Elizabeth has a knack for presenting unusual plots that spare readers from the commonplace with vibrant characters. Well Done! and Congratulations, Elizabeth, on another winner!

I was a little skeptical when I first decided to pick this book, but I have to say that it was a delight to read, so much so that I had a hard time stopping until the end.

What a great read! The tension between Michael and Libby sprinkled with their tender moments throughout the book kept me turning page after page until to the very end. Elizabeth Cameron’s written word made the emotions of the characters come alive inside me. I didn’t want the story to end. And the botanical information for scents and perfumes was so interesting. I give a big thumbs-up to this historical romance.
