I have come to highly anticipate Elizabeth Camden’s novels. Ms. Camden has a penchant for combining history with scientific breakthroughs from around the same time period into captivating depictions. Some authors take the same story line and change it up a bit but not so with Ms. Camden. Each of her novels is a new and fascinating take on history. Her latest novel, Until the Dawn, tells the story of Sophie and Quentin. Sophie is a volunteer for the Weather Bureau who has set up a weather station at one of Quentin’s family homes, Dierenpark. Aside from a few servants set to keep watch, Dierenpark has sat vacant for many years. Quentin has come to Dierenpark on a mission from his grandfather and is accompanied by his young son.
Sophie and Quentin are at odds from the first, separated not only by their visions for Dierenpark, but also by social and economic statuses and different spiritual beliefs. They are drawn together by the needs of Quentin’s son and strange occurrences at Dierenpark. Ultimately throughout the book, they are drawn together by more than just Pieter but I’ll let you read for yourself to find that out. Although this is considered as inspirational romance, there is so much more to the book that just romance. The reader is taken on a journey to find out about the beginnings of the weather bureau, and also discoveries about the history of the place.
I recommend this book for readers who enjoy romance combined with enough mystery and adventure to keep you turning the pages. I could not put this book down and I hope you have the same "problem" with it. 😉
