Book Tour (Read With Audra), Review and Giveaway ‘Dusk’s Darkest Shores’ (Regency Wallflowers) by Carolyn Miller

About the series:
While most stories set in Regency England focus on the rich, the young, and the beautiful, award-winning author Carolyn Miller decided she wanted to give readers something different for a change. Her new Regency Wallflowers series follows the commoners, away from the hustle and bustle of 1810s London, out in the Lake District of England. She tells the stories of women who are slightly older and have few prospects for marriage, women who might be considered “wallflowers.”
About the book:
How can a meek wallflower help a returning war hero whose dreams are plunged into darkness?
Mary Bloomfield has no illusions. Her chances for matrimony have long since passed her by. Still, her circumstances are pleasant enough, especially now that she has found purpose in assisting her father with his medical practice in England’s beautiful Lake District. Even without love, it’s a peaceful life.
That is until Adam Edgerton returns to the sleepy district. This decorated war hero did not arrive home to acclaim and rest, but to a new battle against the repercussions of an insidious disease. Mary’s caring nature cannot stand to see someone suffer–but how can she help this man see any brightness in his future when he’s plunged into melancholic darkness, his dreams laid waste by his condition?
Adam wants no charity, but he’s also no coward. If this gentle woman can work hard, how can he do less? Together they struggle to find a way forward for him. Frustration and antipathy slowly develop into friendship and esteem. Then a summer storm atop a mountain peak leads to scandal–and both Mary and Adam must search the depths of their closed hearts for answers if they hope to find any future path with happiness at its end.

‘I have so little, Lord.’

Carolyn Miller begins a new series with Dusk’s Darkest Shores, and if this book is any indication, the series will be wonderful.

Mary Bloomfield is twenty nine in 1811 England, and considered a spinster in that era. She has resigned herself to that fate and is content with her life, helping her physician father with caring for those in the village. When wounded war hero Adam Edgerton, with whom her older brother was friends, returns home from the war, he is depressed to be confronted with his disease. Mary resolves to offer support and care to Adam as best she can, for that is her nature. After all, his dreams have been dashed and she wants to show God’s love to everyone she comes in contact with.

‘Why had God allowed this to happen? He could have intervened at the last and performed a miracle to demonstrate His awesome power. Yet He hadn’t. It was as if He didn’t care. That did not acord with what she knew of God.’

As Miller takes the reader along on this most precious journey, we are an audience to Adam and Mary’s hearts being opened to a life neither of them had ever dreamed of. Her description of t he heart’s struggle with pain, real life issues and the sovereignty of God are so accurately portrayed and stunningly poignant. One word comes to mind about this novel: exquisite. For it is indeed exquisite. This is one for the keeper shelf, folks, and one I’m happy to have there. Well done! I loved it so very much.
