This book has a fascinating set up. Set during the Industrial Age, right as labor woes exploded across the United States, The Lady of Bolton Hill highlights those issues in Baltimore, MD. The historian in me loved that aspect. The story teller loved the history between the two main characters. The way they wanted to continue to see each other as the young adults they'd been 12 years earlier, yet the dramatic ways they'd both changed. One is bent on vengeance. The other on teaching the value of faith and love. One is a reporter. One is a rising industrialist. The story is gripping. The characters rich. The writing lush. I loved this story and am delighted to have a copy to giveaway to one commenter. Be sure to leave a comment below if you'd like a chance to have your own copy of this historical romance.
ABOUT THE BOOK

But time has changed them both.
Daniel is an industrial titan with powerful enemies. Clara is an idealistic journalist determined to defend underprivileged workers.
Can they withstand the cost of their convictions while their hearts, and lives, hang in the balance?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
A word from Elizabeth: I am a college librarian in central Florida by day, but by night I can be found pounding out inspirational historical novels the moment the sun goes down. I love writing books about fiercely intelligent people who are confronted with profound challenges. As a rather introverted person, I have found that writing is the best way for me to share my faith and a sense of resilience with others.
As for who I am? I love old Hitchcock films, the hour before sunset, a long, sweaty run through the Florida countryside, and a glass of good wine. After spending my entire adult life on a college campus (either as a student or a librarian) I have finally been able to pursue my ultimate goal of writing professionally.
