Kurzbeschreibung

Romance and Drama to Capture the Heart in This Emotional Tale

The last thing Libby Sawyer and her father expected upon their return from their summer home was to find strangers inhabiting a house that had been in their family for decades. Widower Michael Dobrescu brought his family from Romania to the town of Colden, Massachusetts with a singular purpose: to claim the house willed to him long ago. Since neither party has any intention of giving up their claim, a fierce legal battle ensues between the two families.

When important documents go missing from the house, Libby suspects Michael is the culprit. Determined to discover the truth behind the stolen papers, Libby investigates, only to find more layers of mystery surrounding Michael and his family. Despite their rivalry, Libby finds herself developing feelings for this man with the mysterious past.

As a decision about the house looms in the courts, Libby must weigh the risks of choosing to remain loyal to her family or give her heart to a man whose intentions and affections are less than certain.

5.0 von 5 Sternen SIMPLY AMAZING 16. Januar 2012
Von Kym McNabney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
THE ROSE OF WINSLOW STREET is the first book I've read by Elizabeth Camden, but it won't be the last. In many cases a novel starts out with a bang, just to dwindle within the first fifty pages. Then there are those that don't start out well and continue in the same pace. With THE ROSE OF WINSLOW STREET, it started out at an ever pace, nothing causing my heart to race. But in a relatively short time the story took off.

I was hooked!

Liberty Sawyer is not what she appears. She is beautiful, well dressed and comes from a fine family. An outsider would never suspect the horrifying secret she guards so fiercely.

Michael Dobrescu has only recently arrived in America. He shocks the town of Colden, Massachusetts by storming in and taking over the Sawyer's home.

To Libby's father's horror, she befriends Michael despite his outrageous claim on their home. Michael is not what he appears and in spite of her father and the people of Colden, Libby can't seem to get Michael out of her thoughts.

As an aspiring writer there aren't too many books I come across that I don't edit as I read. THE ROSE OF WINSLOW STREET is one of those few. Most of us don't have the luxury to sit for long hours to complete a book in one sitting. Many books have places where we are able to comfortably set it down. THE ROSE OF WINSLOW STREET is not one of them. The only good place to stop is upon completion.

The writing is exquisite. The plot is captivating. The characters are amazing. I loved the uniqueness of both Michael and Libby. I'm not sure if I can ever look at a rose in the same way after reading MS. CAMDEN'S novel. I've certainly learned a great deal about roses and perfume.

Michael was such a wonderful mix of strength, masculinity, protectiveness and tenderness. His chosen profession and passion in life is a bipolar difference from his outer appearance.

Libby's "disability" was refreshing and unique. A true testament to how God made us each distinctively different, yet with a talent or passion to be carried out for the good.

The faith portion was carried out lightly in a way that will please readers no matter where they are in their journey. It's not preachy, yet one has to admire the characters solid beliefs and morals.

It's not very often that I immediately purchase another book by the same author I'm reading before I've even completed it. But that's exactly what I've done. I can't wait to receive my copy of THE LADY OF BOLTON HILL. I have no doubt the pages will captivate me in the same way THE ROSE OF WINSLOW STREET has.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Rose of Beauty... 4. Januar 2012
Von Christina B - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Having lived alone in their house on Winslow Street for over 20 years, Liberty and her father, Professor Willard Sawyer, are eking out a quiet existence. He spends most of his time working on new fangled inventions that, due to his perfectionism, will never see the light of day, while Libby fills her world with the neighborhood children and capturing nature on canvas.

As they vacation in their summer home on St. Catherine's Island, the Sawyers are completely unaware of trouble brewing back on Winslow Street.

For, overnight, widower Michael Dobrescu has moved his family on to their property with, seemingly, no intention of leaving.

Upon receiving word of the invasion, Libby and her father rush back to Colden Massachusetts, intending to vacate these immigrant trespassers from Romania. However, the matter cannot be so easily resolved upon learning Professor Sawyer does not, in fact, hold the deed to the house.

Dobrescu claims that as the eldest son of the 9th Duke of Vlaska, rightful ownership goes to him. This quickly becomes a matter for the courts to decide, which could take anywhere from several weeks to a year.

Crestfallen, Libby accompanies the sheriff in a mission to gather their personal belongings from the home. Upon seeing Mr. Dobrescu, she is taken a back by his size, strange clothing, and brash manner. And after being thoroughly insulted then rudely dragged away from meeting his sister, Libby is more than happy to see the back of this brute hulk of a man.

However, despite her apparent dislike for him, is there actually any truth to Michael's statements? Is he a descendant of royalty, or a mere imposter looking to capitalize on a golden opportunity? Is there a chance the Sawyers could lose their home?

Author Elizabeth Camden weaves together a compelling tale; one I had a hard time putting down. By the end of the second chapter, I was completely hooked and wanting to discover what would happen next.

I read her debut novel, The Lady of Bolton Hill, and while really enjoying it, felt the Christian aspects were a bit heavy handed/overdone.

I'm happy to say, that's not the case here.

The characters are wonderfully developed, the pacing just right, while the tone manages to convey intricate layers of emotion and tension in each scene. I connected perfectly with Libby, but came to love Michael the most. He seemed to leap off the page, and I could picture him just as Ms. Camden described; rugged, quirky, handsome, unpredictable, gentle, fierce, protective... and with a sense of humor to boot.

Literally, a real hunk of a guy!

Watching the relationship develop between Michael and Libby was honestly a treat, and one I won't soon forget. Their dialogue fairly crackled, with just the right amount of quips, plus feeling, thrown in to keep readers on their toes.

I also found the plot to be rather original, and appreciated that aspect a lot. Sometimes, books can tend to run together after a while, so learning about the Romanian culture was an added bonus and made the Dobrescu family stand out. I haven't come across anyone quite like Michael and will miss his larger than life personality which truly shone through.

If you're looking for a well written, engaging, romantic, historical, The Rose of Winslow Street captures all that and more. I honestly loved it and will be putting this one in my keeper pile.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.

3.0 von 5 Sternen An O.K. Read 19. Februar 2012
Von Morgan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Libby Sawyer and Michael Dobrescu are two completely different people. Michael moves with his family from Romania and claims Libby's house when her and her father are away for the summer. Throughout the novel both Libby and Michael battle court cases and each other.

While the plot of this book was interesting and unique, I felt like I couldn't connect with the characters. My least favorite character was Michael. He loved his family, which was great, but because of this extreme love for his family he seemed to be very harsh to everyone else, including Libby. At one point in the novel she asked him for a favor and he wouldn't do it for her unless she agreed to do something for him in return.

This book did explore some difficult topics, which I appreciated, but otherwise, I didn't enjoy this book as much as her other novel, The Lady of Bolton Hill.

I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I LOVED This Book!!! 4. Juli 2012
Von Megan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Before I get to my opinion of the story I have to say that the cover of this book is absolutely gorgeous! When I first saw it online I thought it was very pretty, but it's even more beautiful in person; and it's not just the front cover, but the back cover too. Before I read the story I thought the back was nice, but now I see that each object on there represents a part in the story - very clever!

I have to be careful not to give away too much of the story, otherwise I might spoil it for you. I loved how this book didn't seem like a typical novel, where everything is very predictable, but instead slowing unfolded - that made it SO enjoyable!

The Rose of Winslow Street begins with Mikhail Dobrescu, arriving in Colden, MA with his sons (Andrei and Lucca), his two friends (Joseph and Turk), and Lady Mirela after having fled from Romania. It's late in the evening when they arrive at the house on Winslow Street (the Sawyer's house). They discover that no one is at home and quickly make themselves at home.

Once in America, Mikhail decides to change his name to the more American name Michael. At first Michael came across like a brute, however, very quickly a different side of him was shown. I realized that he is a man that cares deeply for his family and is willing to do just about anything to protect them.

Both Michael and Mirela have an air of mystery surrounding them and the story is purposefully vague about why they fled to America. I had an inkling of what Mirela's secret would be, and while I was partly right, I was still shocked by it.

I felt an immediate connection with Libby. There were many times when she was reflecting on painful moments from her childhood which were caused by a secret she had, and I felt so bad for her. However, there is one scene in the book that was so heart-wrenching that it made me cry and at the same time so mad!

I learned Libby's secret on page 23 and it's something that everybody in Colden knows, so it's not really a secret there, but when she goes to her brother's summer house no one there knows about it. I was quite surprised when I first read what her secret was - it was very unexpected!

The Rose of Winslow Street is Camden's second book, but it's the first one I have read by her. I loved every page of this book and highly recommend it. For those who don't read Historical fiction that often, I think this is one for which you should make an exception. For those who LOVE Historical fiction, I think you will LOVE this book too and it will become a favorite.

***I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.***

3.0 von 5 Sternen Historical romance with hits and misses 5. März 2012
Von Christina Lockstein - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The Rose of Winslow Street by Elizabeth Camden is a historical romance with drama and humor. Libby Sawyer's life is steady, not wonderful, but routine, and she's learned to be happy within her small town of Colden, Massachusetts. She lives alone with her father and uses her artistic talent to help him plan and detail his many inventions, despite her secret that has kept her from finding a husband. When she and her father go on summer vacation on the coast, their home is taken over by Michael Dobrescu of Romania, who lays claim to their home and is desperate to keep it as a home for his family. Michael is quickly at odds with the people of Colden who wage war on the intruder, but Libby sees the family's isolation and at first reaches out out of charity, but soon finds herself fitting into this family better than she has ever fit into her own. Both Michael and Libby have secrets that make for convenient misunderstandings, but they have quick chemistry. As a reader, I never took to Michael. Camden spends far too much time describing his bulging muscles, and I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed in Libby for allowing his physical beauty to blind her to his other flaws. The story is a bit over the top, but despite the occasional dark turns, Camden keeps it light with a touch of humor which kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next.
