Book Description

When Clara Endicott and Daniel Tremain's worlds collide after twelve years apart, the spark that was once between them immediately reignites into a romance neither of them thought possible.

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?

"Camden's evangelical Christian historical romance skillfully captures a fascinating period of railroad and other technological innovations, opium smugglers, and muckraking journalists in a dramatic tale of vengeance, ambition, and faith set against a backdrop of both privileged high society and working-class riots." --Booklist

"This very satisfying debut novel, about the power of faith and forgiveness, will surely launch Camden well into the midst of the field of inspirational authors." --Historical Novels Review

3.0 out of 5 stars Starts brilliantly, ends bizarrely! 22 Jun. 2015
By Sue
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The prologue, set in 1867, is dramatic and very well-written. It introduces Daniel Tremain, a sixteen-year-old working boy in the United States who suffers a terrible tragedy; it also introduces his best friend, Clara, who shares his passion for classical music although her background is much higher class than his.

The rest of the story takes place twelve years later. The historical settings felt real, and the dialogue came across as authentic. I liked Clara, and found Daniel believable if rather hard-headed and materialistic. I was less convinced by the other, more minor characters.

However my biggest problem with the book was the sudden development of a completely different sub-plot, part way through. It involves some opium dealers, and a particularly unpleasant and amoral teenage boy known as Bane. When the two storylines combine, the book descends into melodrama… oddly mixed with evangelism.

The resolution of the story’s climax feels bizarre, and that's writing from the perspective as a Christian who has no doubt that God can do anything. For those without faith, approaching this as a historical fiction book, the ending would seem unrealistic and contrived in a ‘deus ex machina’ style.

So I can’t give this any more than three stars, despite it being very well-written and with a great sense of the historical context. I'd say it's worth reading, and very interesting in places, but I’d have liked it better (and believed in it more) if the story involving Bane had not been there at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as well-written as her later books 10 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read three of Elizabeth Camden's novels and, so far, I think this is probably my least favourite. Given that it's her debut novel, it makes sense that it isn't quite as strong or well-written as her later books. Her writing voice is quite different and more mature in her later novels.

I honestly think that the opening chapters of this book--involving Clara and Daniel as teenagers, and then Clara imprisoned in London--were the strongest in the whole story. They sucked me in and intrigued me immediately, but the ensuing conflicts weren't quite as intriguing as the opening ones. The suspense and mystery in this book definitely kept me turning the pages, and I won't deny that the story is compelling, but the opening chapters were definitely the strongest out of the entire book.

I definitely enjoyed the details about Clara's work as a journalist and the issues with the labour unions, which I haven't come across much before in other novels from this time period. Female journalists certainly weren't all that common at this time, especially ones who delved into gritty issues like the ones Clara wrote about. Labour unions and child labour might not be the most romantic historical details to discuss in a novel, but they were interesting to read about.

While the villain of the story is disconnected from the other characters for the majority of the plot (which is initially a little confusing), he becomes more prominent towards the end of the story. I actually read the sequel to this book, Against the Tide, first, and I remember wondering how much of Bane's backstory is dealt with in the first book, since I found the details in the sequel to be rather vague. They're still pretty vague here, to be honest, and I think I probably prefer Against the Tide to this book.

DNF - unfortunately the baddie is more charismatic than the hero and the heroine was a bit too sweet and preachy (I suppose I ought to expect that from a Christian romance)

But I read Against the Tide before this book which was a mistake as that book had a much more interesting heroine and hero. Bane, the baddie in this book - underworld Dr*ug Lord and all round bada$$ is the hero in the next book and is just much more dark and dangerous than the characters here.
