Whenever I reach the end of an Elizabeth Camden novel, I inevitably give a long sigh for two reasons: one, I’ve had the enjoyment of reading another compelling historical novel by a master writer; and two, a story that I wish could have lasted much longer is now finished. . . Ms. Camden’s newest novel, “A Dangerous Legacy”, was published by Bethany House and is historical fiction at its best, complete with mystery, romance, intrigue, and unique viewpoints of life in New York City in 1903.
One aspect I adore about Elizabeth Camden novels is the depth and intricate layering of personality and backstory that each character possesses. Lucy Drake and Sir Colin Beckwith of “A Dangerous Legacy” both have captivating histories that have shaped who they are, and who they become through the course of the novel. Plus, their interactions with each other are often a combination of hilarious and heartwarming.
On the other hand, if you are a reader who prefers your novels to have an intriguing plot and plenty of excitement and drama over strong character development, “A Dangerous Legacy” will still capture your interest. Treacherous relatives, deadly schemes on a national scale, and personal vendettas will undoubtedly keep you guessing until the end, as the web of deceit unravels.
As I’m certain you can tell by now, I adore most of Elizabeth Camden’s novels. “A Dangerous Legacy” was definitely no exception. If you are looking for your next Christian Historical novel, this one should definitely be at the top of your list. Simply open the cover and allow it to sweep you away to 1903, New York City, and a world of secret messages, dangerous intentions, and a love that conquers even the unlikeliest of circumstances. . .
