The Rose of Winslow Street Book Review

The Rose of Winslow Street by Elizabeth Camden is an excellent novel and well worth the time to read!! I have never read anything by Camden and I was pleasantly surprised with this story. It had twists in it that I was not expecting. Many books you can read and after the first chapter the entire story is easily figured out, that was the case in this story.  The story is set in Colden, Massachusetts in 1879 with the two main characters being Libby Sawyer and Michael Dobrescu.The characters are wonderful and Camden did a lot of historical research to make them come alive.

Though I would recommend this book to almost anyone, it does have a couple of "scenes" that include rape and a suicide attempt. I would recommend caution when it comes to younger readers. It does have a wonderful story of not only love, but also of letting go of a difficult past and moving on with God's help.
