Adult     Rating:     4

Bestselling author Elizabeth Camden kicks off a new historical fiction series set in the 1900s, the Gilded Age of America.


Camden’s novels are filled with well-researched historical details, while weaving a suspenseful mystery. The faith element is minimal but evident, and the storytelling is excellent with strong, flawed characters and descriptive narratives. Patrick and Gwen are very different — Patrick is a proud Irishman, while Gwen is a woman from a wealthy family. Despite this, they are able to eventually look past that. 

Camden is a master at taking a period of time that is not well-known to readers and crafting an engaging story. In this case, the story teaches the reader about the clashing of social classes, the unions, the tetanus vaccine, and the merger of steel companies. 

Book 2, Written on the Wind, will be available in 2022.   Reviews of other books by Elizabeth Camden: A Dangerous Legacy, A Daring VentureA Desperate Hope, The Spice King, and The Gilded Lady.
