Female journalists are rare in 1879, but American-born Clara Endicott has finally made a name for herself with her provocative articles championing London's poor. When the backlash from her work forces a return home to Baltimore, Clara finds herself face-to-face with a childhood sweetheart who is no longer the impoverished factory worker she once knew. In her absence, Daniel Tremain has become a powerful industry giant and Clara finds him as enigmatic as ever. However, Daniel's success is fueled by resentment from past wounds and Clara's deeply-held beliefs about God's grace force Daniel to confront his own motives. When Clara's very life is endangered by one of Daniel's adversaries, they must face a reckoning neither of them ever could have foreseen.… (més)

Can Clara and Daniel withstand the cost of their convictions while their hearts and lives hang in the balance.

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. ( )

The cover was beautiful, that's about all I can say. I read the first 10 or so chapters and as soon as the villain makes his appearance, I thought, you have to be kidding me. So cheesy. And the relationship between Clara and Daniel is completely unbelieveable. They immediately pick up where they left off and clear all the misunderstandings between them in ONE conversation. It didn't give me anything to invest in. So I skimmed the rest of the way through, reading paragraphs or pages at a time, and finished thinking, I am so glad I did not waste my time reading every word. Kind of ridiculous. ( )

good summer read~

"The Lady of Bolton Hill", Elizabeth Camden's debut novel,
with it's quite unique and unexpected action
for those of you who enjoy some mystery
added to your romances...
has a fascinating storyline. Good description and vocabulary.
I felt Clara could have learnt more from her judgemental and over-zealousness in trying to reform Daniel. She seemed much younger in attitude than her stated age.
I did like the reality of their physical attraction - well written.

Thanks, Elizabeth, for keeping me reading this weekend! ( )

This is a wonderful 5 Book worthy novel! It's filled with intriguing mystery, deep, rich historical detail and sweet romance. The characters are amazingly created and captivate the readers heart. From start to finish, I enjoyed every minute of this historical novel, and loved the messages of hope, faith and deep devotion mixed in. Well done, Ms. Camden! ( )
