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.
Best-selling author Carolyn Miller is back with a fresh series that will not only thrill readers eager for more of her work, but bring in new fans looking for beautiful writing, fascinating research, deftly woven love stories, and real faith lived out in the Regency period.
Dusk’s Darkest Shores was the first book that I have read by Carolyn Miller and will not be the last. Where to begin? I was pulled in from page one and sad when I turned the last page of the story. We are introduced to Mary who has resigned herself to being a spinster who loves working her father who is a doctor. She loves the Lord and a huge heart. Adam, a man who had it all an outstanding career with the military and a farm waiting for him at home as well as a young lady who is waiting to marry him However, Adam sustains serious injuries.
An inspiring book with a message that we all need to trust in Jesus for today, tomorrow and the next day, that we should not get upset if things do not go our way. We are all human with plenty of flaws, just like Adam and Mary. Yes, the unknown can be scary, we just need to have faith and trust Him.
Do not miss this book, it will stay with you long after you close the last page.
I received this book through Read With Audra and Kregel Publishing. All opinions are my own.
