Happy Tuesday!! Today’s blog post is a review of Roseanna M. White’s The Nature of a Lady. It released today and I’m excited to talk about it. Grab a cup of tea (or coffee) and let’s chat!
About the Book
Lady Elizabeth “Libby” Sinclair, with her love of microscopes and nature, isn’t favored in society. She flees to the beautiful Isles of Scilly for the summer and stumbles into the dangerous secrets left behind by her holiday cottage’s former occupant, also named Elizabeth, who mysteriously vanished.
Oliver Tremayne–gentleman and clergyman–is determined to discover what happened to his sister, and he’s happy to accept the help of the girl now living in what should have been Beth’s summer cottage . . . especially when he realizes it’s the curious young lady he met briefly two years ago, who shares his love of botany and biology. But the hunt for his sister involves far more than nature walks, and he can’t quite believe all the secrets Beth had been keeping from him.
As Libby and Oliver work together, they find ancient legends, pirate wrecks, betrayal, and the most mysterious phenomenon of all: love.
The Nature of a Lady is a little different than some of Roseanna M. White’s other books. This book isn’t set during war time; however…it does start with a prologue with fighting and the mystery that created is throughout the book.
What I liked the most about this book is how Ms. White deals with feeling different, isolated, awkward in a sea of graceful women, etc. For anyone who has ever felt that way it’s great to see how she handled that and the message God tells us in the face of those insecurities.
There were a couple of romance threads which I thought was fun to see because…romance!
All in all, Ms. White’s writing style can be seen between the pages of her latest release.
*I received a complimentary copy of the book via NetGalley. My review was not required nor influenced.
