Publisher's Description

Romance and Drama to Capture the Heart in This Emotional Tale

The last thing Libby Sawyer and her father expected upon their return from their summer home was to find strangers inhabiting a house that had been in their family for decades. Widower Michael Dobrescu brought his family from Romania to the town of Colden, Massachusetts with a singular purpose: to claim the house willed to him long ago. Since neither party has any intention of giving up their claim, a fierce legal battle ensues between the two families.

When important documents go missing from the house, Libby suspects Michael is the culprit. Determined to discover the truth behind the stolen papers, Libby investigates, only to find more layers of mystery surrounding Michael and his family. Despite their rivalry, Libby finds herself developing feelings for this man with the mysterious past.

As a decision about the house looms in the courts, Libby must weigh the risks of choosing to remain loyal to her family or give her heart to a man whose intentions and affections are less than certain.

    This review was written for The Rose of Winslow Street, eBook.
    Another wonderful story from Elizabeth Camden! She is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.

    Michael Dobrescu brought his family from Romania to the United States to start a new life in the house his uncle left to him in his will. A house now lived in by Professor Sawyer his daughter Libby. Both men claim ownership.

    Libby finds herself attracted to the handsome Romanian in spite of the animosity between him and her father. And his two young sons capture her heart from the start. But love is out of the question for Libby Sawyer, even with a foreigner who doesn't know her shameful secret.

    Love the characters in this story. I was drawn to them immediately and had to keep the pages turning to see what would happen next. I highly recommend this one!

    While Professor Sawyer and his daughter Libby are away on vacation, a group of Romanian Immigrants move into their home with a claim that the house is theirs. Michael Dobrescu has written proof that the house on Winslow Street belongs to his family, and he will do anything to make sure that his family has a place to live. As the legal fight between the two families grinds on Libby finds herself inexplicably drawn to the head of the household, Michael Dobrescu, despite her father verbal disapproval that she not associate with any of the "gypsies", as he calls them.

    I liked Libby and Michael as a couple. They complimented each other very well. I loved it when Libby's reading disability was brought up in discussion between the two and Michael just accepted it as part of who she was and it was never brought up again between the two. Michael's perfume making abilities was a nice touch and I really enjoyed learning about the process.

    Mirela was the character that stood out the most for me. When we first meet her she is a lost, broken girl that depends on others for her very survival, but throughout the book we see her grow into a strong, competent young woman, who with God's help, takes back her life and is determined to make the most of it. I related to this character the most because as a human being, I am lost and broken time and time again, yet God picks me up, brushes me off and sets me back on my path. I could really relate.

    This was a delightful book to read. The author has characters that were realistic and enjoyable and it had a plot that I have not read before. I am looking forward to reading other books by this author.

    Libby loves her home and her family. Because of her "secret" she thinks she can never marry and have a family. Her father is partial to her brother and easily puts Libby down.

    No matter how she is hurting she always think of others.

    What do you do when opposing sides of an issue are both in the right?

    What do you do when neither side does what is right?

    From the cover to the end of the story, Elizabeth Camden's "The Rose of Winslow Street" is a gorgeous novel, and not a run-of-the-mill romance. Liberty Sawyer and her professor father are called back from vacation upon a "horde of gypsies" taking over their house. Displaced from their home, they fight to get back the house that they have lived in for more than twenty years, while Romanians Michael Dobrescu and his family fights to hold onto the house which they inherited from the previous owner. The town is behind the Sawyers, but the law is forced to uphold the Dobrescus.

    It is a book full of contradictions. A strapping, warrior of a man, Michael has spent much of his life fighting in the wars against one oppressor or another, but his passion is raising flowers and making perfumes. Mirela, a duke's daughter, is wearing secondhand dresses, while the wife of a middle class banker is sporting expensive jewels and suddenly seems to own a fortune. An inventor never completes an invention to his satisfaction, and thus never patents a one, and Libby, the daughter of a professor, cannot even read.

    Despite the fact that they are officially enemies and in defiance of the hardness of the hearts of the "good christian people" of Colden, Massachusetts, Libby reaches out to the ostracized Dobrescus, forging a close friendship with Michael and a love for his sons. They still remain opposed as to who should have the house - after all, Libby was raised there and her father put years of work into it, and Michael inherited it from his uncle and it is the only safe haven for him and his family - but in spite of that, they respect each other's opinion and do not let it seriously interfere with their relationship.

    I never could decide which party should have the house, since both are in the right, but both sides do ample wrong. It is certainly wrong of Michael to just waltz in and take the house by force, and he does not improve matters by destroying all the local roses, but neither is it right to deny a family - especially one with young children - such basic necessities as food! No one else makes an effort to know the Dobrescus, and yet they are perfectly happy to trash-talk them and boot them out in a storm.

    Overall, I was impressed by the novelty of this book, as the plot is quite different from many historical romances. Largely it is a romance, but with a wee bit of suspense, a wee bit of mystery, and superbly vibrant characters that one can hurt for, hope for, pity, despise, and love. 5 out of 5 stars!
