From This Moment

Elizabeth Camden is one of my favorite historical fiction authors. Her most recent release, "From This Moment" enchanted me.

What captivated me about this story was the details of building the first subway in Boston. Having come from New York City, where subways are the way of transportation life, I found these details to this story most intriguing.

The story centers around Romulus White and Stella West, where sparks fly between the two creative minds. Each one meeting their match of a high self ego, while a mysterious death tears them apart. Stella has something Romulus needs for his scientific magazine, and Romulus has something Stella needs to solve the mystery of her sisters untimely death.

I deeply respect Ms. Camden's in-depth research into her historical novels. Her attention to detail continues to surround every book I have read. And this one does not disappoint. Not only details concerning the time period, but the characters as well. Romulus has the distinct attribute of a person with ADD.  He seems to be highly intelligent, yet is a dreamer, cannot keep focus, and has lost his first love for lack of responsibility. He feels he cannot hold down a job, and has a great fear of commitment. But Stella West is a force to be reckoned with and their romance blooms as a result of the struggles they face. This was quite an interesting story. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
