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.
My thanks to Kregel Publications for a copy of this book. I was not required to leave a positive review. The thoughts here are entirely and expressly my own.
