Book Review

 

Fiction.  Nothing like it.  A gifted story-teller is one who creates a movie that brilliantly unfolds in the mind’s eye.  The scenes are set, costumes are worn, and character’s personalities are each unveiled as if the reader was included in the script.  Great fiction leaves the reader more educated than before the first page was turned.  Outstanding fiction creates an opportunity for the reader’s character to be inspired to grow alongside the story-line.  This is outstanding.  In this case, the reader wants to get their hands on the sequel.  And they don’t want to wait (ahem).

I want to thank author Jamie Carie for not only educating me, but inspiring me.  The human spirit is an amazing page-turner.  She captures the tenacity and persistence of the human spirit to, against all odds, fight for the what’s right.  God’s gifts are all round us, if we only ask to see.

About the Book:
The Guardian Duke is award-winning novelist Jamie Carie’s most exciting story yet, a uniquely arranged Regency-era romantic adventure where hero and heroine know each other through written letters but have yet to meet.
Gabriel, the Duke of St. Easton, is ordered by the King to take guardianship over Lady Alexandria Featherstone whose parents are presumed dead after failing to return from a high profile treasure hunt. But Alexandria ignores this royal reassignment, believing her parents are still alive and duly following clues that may lead to their whereabouts. Gabriel, pressured by what are actually the King’s ulterior motives, pursues her across windswept England and the rolling green hills of Ireland but is always one step behind. When they do meet, the search for earthly treasure will pale in comparison to what God has planned for both of them.
