Book Review: The Nature of A Lady

About the Book:

1906
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.

My Thoughts:

The Nature of A Lady is a book that has it all! The setting, the mystery, the character development, all of it was absolutely brilliant. There are books that are difficult to put down and books that you can’t stop thinking about even when you have to walk away. This was the latter. Roseanna White is an excellent author, but this is probably my favorite of her novels and has a much more enjoyable tone than the last couple of novels she released, which were well done, but quite heavy in subject matter. This is one of those series where I really wish I could pick up the next novel and just keep reading. Write fast Roseanna…I’m waiting.

I received a free digital galley of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
