The christian salvation message is questionable
Yes, forgiveness is mentioned but in my estimation forgiveness is associated with valour and good works. Forgiveness for sins and heart forgiveness for wrongs by a person against a person do not seem to be mentioned. Salvation seems to equated with going to church. Good works in place of faith seems to be the way to earn salvation. A life style change seems to be equated with salvation. Asking God's forgiveness for sins committed and having a personal relationship with God doesn't seem to be there.

Great read, well developed characters. her boyfriend was a little crazy but i really liked the romance and the fact that the guy who kidnapped her after all turned his life around and became a christian.

Not exactly earth shattering...
I've read a few books by Elizabeth Camden, but I wouldn't say this one was at the top of the list. It was enjoyable, and I found it to be a great prologue to her next novel, "Against the Tide", but I wouldn't say it's world changing or anything.
The characters, although a little predictable, were intriguing and I loved the relationship between Clara and Daniel. It's a good example how important friendship is in any kind of romantic relationship.
The Lady of Bolton Hill was worth the read, but easily forgettable. I'd recommend it to lovers of historical fiction who'd like to curl up to a good story by a up and coming author. I don't think you'll be overly disappointed.

I enjoyed the story. The characters were a little unbelievable at some points. Clara sometimes came off being a little vague on her beliefs. She was strong on her own forgiveness. But I thought she wasn't very clear on presenting God's forgiveness to Bane and a little over bearing with Daniel. I wondered about the Professor and how he fit into the story other than training Bane to be evil.
It sounded like he gave the assignment to Bane but I didn't see how he related to the story.
I did enjoy the whole blot and I would suggest the book to someone to read. However don't look for a clear message on God's personal forgiveness.
