Fiction Review: Roseanna M. White’s “The Reluctant Duchess”

Reluctant Duchess

Are you looking for a work that will challenge you to think deeply about large concepts, while also holding on tight to the coattails of plot, as it dashes along? This is the book for you.

What a great read. The pace is fast, relentless even, but the story is well told – keeping you invested until the very end. I enjoyed the depth of the author’s language, as her characters come alive through her expert writing.

Best though, I loved the deep discussions of faith between the characters – which are much broader than I have found in other books with this setting. You wouldn’t initially expect a mystery love story to leave you lingering over the spiritual points discussed after you finished reading! But how each character relates to their faith, and how they deal with superstitions are integral to the plot, creating a one-of-a-kind read that I absolutely recommend.

I also can’t wait to get to know these characters more! The next book releases in September 2016!

I received a review copy of this work from the publisher through NetGalley
