Before this book, I had never heard of the Fenian brotherhood....actually I knew very little at all of Irish history. Elizabeth Ludwig intertwines the history with her story.
"Cara Hamilton had thought her brother to be dead. Now, clutching his letter, she leaves Ireland for America, desperate to find him. Her search leads her to a houseful of curious strangers, and one man who claims to be a friend - Rourke Walsh. Despite her brother's warning, Cara trusts Rourke, revealing her purpose in coming to New York." (taken from the back of the book)
One thing that I appreciated about this book (which, if you have read several of my reviews, you might know what's coming) is the way that the characters held onto their Christian values. Consciences were pricked at the lies and deceit, and revenge was shown for what it truly is: a horrible pit. While some of those themes could have been taken farther, in my opinion, I appreciated that this book is Christian fiction that actually had characters living out things clearly spelled out in the Bible. (So many authors give things like that up in the name of a good story.)
As I posted last week, my favorite quote from the book is one that was repeated a few times. "God's help is nearer than the door." The first time I read it, I just stopped right there to ponder it. I love that. God is so close that we can turn to Him in an instant!
I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishing in exchange for this review.
This story is rife with conflict, tension, and intriguing twists and turns, as less than stellar characters come and go that lead us to believe Cara is in grave danger. Add to that the romance factor woven in and a plan that only God Himself could orchestrate, and you have found yourself a novel you won't be able to put down. It is one that truly holds you in its grip right up to the end, and when at last you do read that final sentence, you close the book and your eyes and emit a satisfying sigh.
I loved it!
only historical fiction buffs, but to those who enjoy a well-crafted suspense story with well-drawn characters and a sense of time/place not many authors are able to create. What can I say? I'm ready for number two in the series!

Summary from: [...]
Lured by a handful of scribbled words across a faded letter, Cara Hamilton sets off from 1896 Ireland on a quest to find the brother she'd thought dead. Her search lands her in America, amidst a houseful of strangers and one man who claims to be a friend - Rourke Walsh.
Despite her brother's warning, Cara decides to trust Rourke and reveals the truth about her purpose in America. But he is not who he claims to be, and as rumors begin to circulate about an underground group of dangerous revolutionaries, Cara's desperation grows. Her questions lead her ever closer to her brother, but they also bring her closer to destruction as Rourke's true intentions come to light.
I liked this book overall. I will admit that I thought the first half of the book seemed to drag on and on with character and plot development. I did keep reading! I wanted to know if Cara was going to find her brother. I was curious if Rourke was bad or good. I wanted to know what happen to each of the girls at the boarding house!
The second half of the book was a much more enjoyable read. It moved along nicely with the plot development and climax of the story. I enjoyed the ending. It was somewhat predictable but still enjoyable.
I am just realizing this is a series, I am currently undecided if I will read the next book in the series.
I would give this book 2.5 out of 5 stars.
And yes, I received this book for free from Bethany House for this review. But I told the whole truth, and nothing but the truth!
