The Lady of Bolton Hill by Elizabeth Camden

It’s been over a month since I posted anything. Not that I haven’t been reading, but it’s mostly been for my grad work in library science. Reading about research is not generally blog worthy. However, I may change my mind, and begin to blog about some of my learning. Shouldn’t be keeping all that to myself!

I did recently finish a book by a new author for me. The Lady of Bolton Hill is an historical novel set during the late 1800’s. Clara Endicott is raised by her preacher father and lacks for nothing. Through a mutual love for music, she becomes close friends with Daniel Tremain. Because Daniel is a poor factory worker, Clara’s father send her to England and does what he can to end their friendship.

Years later, Clara returns to American where Daniel has become a wealthy inventor and a leader in industry. When Clara & Daniel meet again, the sparks are still there, but there are still obstacles to their romance. One is Clara still doesn’t have her father (or her brother’s) approval, but even greater is the bitterness & unforgiveness that drives Daniel to seek revenge for the man he considers responsible for his father’s death.

I downloaded this book when it was free on Kindle; a good way to try out some new authors. This was an enjoyable read & a nice break from writing papers & studying research. I look forward to reading Camden’s latest book which you can read about on her website:
