dawnatemberwilde_opt About the Book: Dawn at Emberwilde (Thomas Nelson, May 2016)

On a surprising day Isabel Creston is called away from the only home she has ever known, the Fellsworth School in the rolling English countryside, to a new life with relatives she didn’t know she had.

Bringing her young sister with her it is a time of adjusting to a life of luxury and the attentions of two potential suitors for Isabel.

Mystery also surrounds her new life for at Emberwilde, Isabel’s new home, rumors abound of happenings in the nearby woods.

As Isabel finds her place a startling secret is unearthed causing her dreams to come true.

My Thoughts: Dawn at Emberwilde is part 2 in the series Treasures of Surrey but you can read it as a stand alone. It takes place during one of my favorite historical periods (to read in fiction form that is) the Regency Era.

The plot was interesting and easy to follow. A little mystery in the midst of a young woman finding her place in life during this time period is a good mix.

Both of the main characters were likeable. Isabel was a strong personality who cared fiercely for her young sister. And I really liked Isabel’s potential suitor Colin. But felt like their interaction was not such that made a romance believable at that point. The secondary characters, Isabel’s cousin and Bradford were well written and fleshed out characters.

If you like Regency era Christian fiction this will be an enjoyable read to take to the beach (Or on the plane. In the backyard. etc.)
