Review: THE GILDED LADY / Elizabeth Camden

A Gilded Lady, / by Elizabeth Camden (Hope & Glory, 2)
Bethany House     ISBN     9
Adult     Rating:     5

Award-winning author Elizabeth Camden continues her series about the Deleacroix siblings, set during America’s Gilded Age (President McKinley era).

In A Gilded Lady, strong-willed but charming Caroline Delacroix has the challenge of being confidante, social secretary, and assistant in her role to the First Lady. Attracted to one another but also wary of one another, Caroline and Secret Service Agent Nathaniel Trask face political intrigue, adventure, and danger in their positions to President McKinley and his wife, who has a reputation of being a handful. 


Camden is a master at taking a period of time that is not as well-known to readers, and crafting a story that teaches the reader about the time, such as the presidency of William McKinley, and making it a fascinating read. Although it can be read as a standalone, reading The Spice King, the first book in the series, will give the reader the full backstory of the characters.
