Book Description

Society is concerned about her honor, but Elizabeth must realize her worth doesn't lie in her inheritance.

In order to avoid a forced marriage to a dangerous man, Elizabeth Trelawney flees London. An unexpected stranger arrives to help her, and as they elude her pursuers across Cornwall in the night, Elizabeth realizes her rescuer, Rouan Curnow, is familiar.

Their differences in social status kept Rouan from pursuing a courtship with the lady his heart wouldn't let him forget. Now because of dangerous smugglers and local murders, the two are plunged into a reckless alliance that rattles Rouan's fledgling faith in God.

The closer they get to Bastian Point-Elizabeth's true home-the more she realizes it is the only place she longs to be. Even the sight of its solid structure perched on the cliffs makes her feel safe. Elizabeth is the most likely to inherit Bastian Point if Grandfather never learns she spent the night, however innocently, with a near stranger.

As spring warms into summer, Elizabeth finds herself torn between wanting to be the perfect grandchild and her growing love for a man of whom no one will approve as a match for her, a man she knows she shouldn't entirely trust. Unsure whether she is being foolish or following the right path, she sets out with Rouan on a quest to find the true culprit behind the local violence.

Their quest leads them to danger, and she must choose whether to follow the man she loves or cling to the safety of her family home.
 
My Review,,,,,,,  
This is an interesting and well written historical romance from author Laurie Eakes! The characters are well created and established, and believable. The historical details throughout the book are so vividly described that it felt just like being there in the story! Elizabeth Trelawny had her share of troubles and difficult situations but the author so beautifully weaves the situations, the romance, the mystery together to make a most enjoyable and interesting read! If you are wanting a delightful read for the summer, A Lady's Honor is one that you need to check out!

I rec'd this book from Thomas Nelson through their blogging program, BookLookBloggers to read and review. This review is my opinion only.

  2. I don't know that the book is about what thing. To begin with I thought it is a book for children with straightforward writing a cover letter guide. a debt of gratitude is in order for offering the connection of the book to us through web.
