The Nature of a Lady (The Secrets of the Isles, #1) by Roseanna M. White

 


1906
Lady Elizabeth "Libby" Sinclair, with her love of microscopes and nature, isn't favored in society. She flees to the beautiful Isles of Scilly for the summer and stumbles into the dangerous secrets left behind by her holiday cottage's former occupant, also named Elizabeth, who mysteriously vanished. 

Oliver Tremayne--gentleman and clergyman--is determined to discover what happened to his sister, and he's happy to accept the help of the girl now living in what should have been Beth's summer cottage . . . especially when he realizes it's the curious young lady he met briefly two years ago, who shares his love of botany and biology. But the hunt for his sister involves far more than nature walks, and he can't quite believe all the secrets Beth had been keeping from him.

As Libby and Oliver work together, they find ancient legends, pirate wrecks, betrayal, and the most mysterious phenomenon of all: love.

My Review


 
This is one of my favorite authors and this read sure does not disappoint. Quaint island cottages, pirates, treasure, and a free summer before her life is supposed to change forever. This is the freedom that Lady Elizabeth "Libby" Sinclair is offered and approved of by her mother, and the suggestion comes from her maid Mabena Moon [love the name], and we find out why. What an ideal place for this young woman who loves nothing better than to study the fauna in this subtropical climate.

We are given a bit of everything here, including a Love of God, and a love of family, along with danger, and a bit of romance thrown in.

In the end, I loved the decisions made and how things worked out, and now I can't wait to return!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
