One of My Top Historical Novels of the Year!

First off let me say, I’m going to try my best not to gush incessantly and ecstatically about the following novel, and instead calmly provide several well-founded reasons as to why you simply MUST READ THIS BOOK for yourself! “A Rumored Fortune” is the second novel written by the incredibly talented Joanna Davidson Politano (her first was the extraordinary “Lady Jayne Disappears”), and published by Revell in 2018. It is a beautiful story filled with treasure hunts, thoughtful analogies based on Scripture, characters who you instantly either adore or abhor, a sweet but unlikely romance, and a Victorian castle that holds unimagined secrets deep within. If you enjoy Christian Historical Fiction, I recommend that you place this story at the top of your reading list – it is simply too good to miss!

So, let me elaborate a bit more on the key features I mentioned above:

  • Who doesn’t love a good treasure-hunting story? This one involves a missing fortune, mysterious clues, and numerous lives depending on the inheritance being found…
  • With the parable of the Vine (from the book of John, chapter 15) as a foundation for many of the themes in this novel, it was truly one of the most inspiring and thought-provoking stories I’ve read in a long time…
  • The characters (and character development) are shining gems of this story – Tressa Harlowe and Donegan Vance are a heroine and hero you won’t soon forget, for so many reasons…
  • The romance of this story is sweet, for sure, but it also embodies the deeper elements of true and unselfish love – God’s description of love…
  • And last but not least, Trevelyan Castle is portrayed in such a way that we truly feel as though we are walking down its hallways with Tressa. It is both a home and a character in itself as it bides its time, holding close the secrets that are just waiting to be revealed…

So, are you convinced that “A Rumored Fortune” simply must be placed high on your reading list? This is a beautiful novel that you will not be able to put down – and one that will stay with you long after reaching the end. Many readers are predicting this high-caliber story will be nominated for awards, and I completely agree. In fact, I would go a step further and say that it may one day become a classic. For me it is one of my top books of the year, and a title that I hope to share with as many people as possible. So what are you waiting for? As you uncover the secrets of Trevelyan Castle, you will be rewarded as you discover that “A Rumored Fortune” is a treasure in itself.
