Written on the Wind Review


About the Book

Natalia Blackstone is a rarity in Gilded Age America. As a trusted analyst for her father's bank, she is helping finance the legendary Trans-Siberian Railway. From her office in New York City, Natalia relies on a charming Russian aristocrat to oversee the construction of the railroad on the other side of the world.

But while overseeing the work, Count Dimitri Sokolov witnesses the deadly result of the Russian Monarchy's will to see the railway built. To silence him, the state has stripped Dimitri of his title, his lands, and his freedom . . . but Dimitri has a key asset the czar knows nothing about: his deep and abiding friendship with Natalia Blackstone.

From the steppes of Russia to the corridors of power in Washington, Natalia and Dimitri will fight against all odds to save the railroad and share the truth of what happened, but how can their newfound love survive the ordeal? (Goodreads)


My Thoughts

Elizabeth Camden has written some of my all-time favorite novels. This is book two in a series and while it can be read as a standalone, I recommend reading book one first. This story takes you on an adventure across the globe from New York City to Russia. I love Natalia’s character and Dimitri is a hero that you can’t help but love. The Blackstone family is so fun to read because they are a interwoven mix of personalities. While this story was not entirely what I was expecting, I still really enjoyed it and couldn’t put it down. The witty conversation between characters is splendid and they each have a uniqueness that Camden is so good at creating. With twists and turns and strong willed women I really wasn’t sure how this book would end and was a bit surprised how everything played out. The history aspect is interesting and I felt like I was transported right into New York City.

I loved reading this book and I highly recommend to fans of historical fiction.

Five Stars!
