Product Description

Elizabeth must realize her worth doesn't lie in her inheritance. In order to avoid a forced marriage to a dangerous man, Elizabeth Trelawney flees London. An unexpected stranger arrives to help her, and as they elude her pursuers across Cornwall in the night, Elizabeth realizes her rescuer, Rouan Curnow, is familiar. Their differences in social status kept Rouan from pursuing a courtship with the lady his heart wouldn't let him forget. Now because of dangerous smugglers and local murders, the two are plunged into a reckless alliance that rattles Rouan's fledgling faith in God. The closer they get to Bastian Point---Elizabeth's true home---the more she realizes it is the only place she longs to be.

    A Lady’s Honor, by Laurie Alice Eakes, is the first in the “Cliffs of Cornwall” series. Set in Cornwall, England in April 1811, it is an action-packed historical novel that holds the reader’s attention to the very end.

    Elizabeth Trelawny is rushing to escape an arranged marriage. On her way from England, she is aided by Rowan Curnow, a man she has never met. Risking her reputation by spending most of the night with him, they travel toward her grandparents’ home to find safety for her. After her arrival, she is thrown into a dangerous situation involving smugglers, murder, and an unwed cousin’s pregnancy. Rowan, secretary to her neighbor, rescues her time and again. But Rowan is keeping his own secrets, which could jeopardize his relationship with Elizabeth forever.

    I enjoyed this book very much and look forward to reading more in the series. The characters were easy to relate to, with problems and flaws that many people today display daily. Elizabeth’s discovery that faith in Jesus and a willingness to put the needs of others before oneself was one that everyone needs to learn.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical fiction set in Old England.

    Cornwall, England 1811

    I was drawn from the very beginning of the book. It starts out with Miss Elizabeth Trelawny fleeing from Lord Romsford. During the pursuit, she meets with her brother(or a least assumes it is him) who is saving her from a forced marriage to the dangerous Lord Romsford. Elizabeth finally returns safely to her beloved home, Bastian Point, with her grandparents.

    Some readers may be put off by the heroine's untruths and prideful ways but I loved to see how she began to accept God's love for her over time. Even her grandparents, who are believers, made mistakes in dealing with other family members and they realized it in the book. They tell her that if she finds this treasure Elizabeth will inherit Bastian Point.

    The mystery, suspense and twist and turns made this book very interesting and darker then your typical Regency books. Well written and with an engaging cast. There is also a nice description of the Cornwall coast.

    Strong inspirational message and I loved how the author weaved in the books bible verse found in Matthew 6:21 into the story. Clean Christian Regency. Eager for the next book in the series!

    Elizabeth Trelawney has fled to her family home in Cornwall to escape an engagement she doesn’t want to a man as old as her grandfather. She is kidnapped by one Rowan Curnow, who is pretending to be a friend of her brothers. Can she trust him? Does she have a choice?

    When Elizabeth eventually arrives, she finds her childhood friend is dead, her smuggler brother has run away to hide from the excise men, her cousin has been banished for getting herself into a ‘delicate situation’, and the best friend she hasn’t seen for ten years is homeless after the American heir to the estate just happens to be visiting. And it seems danger still lurks …

    It’s a fast-paced story of mystery and intrigue as Elizabeth is challenged by her grandparents to find the family treasure. This is the first novel in the new Cliffs of Cornwall series, and it’s unusual in that it doesn’t have the usual portrayal of smugglers as jolly good fellows who wouldn’t harm anyone, popular in gothic romances in years gone by. Eakes’s portrayal was uncomfortable in that regard, even if it is more accurate.

    I did get hung up on a few glitches, including misquoting Shakespeare, misused words, inaccurate coinage, and the imaginary location of Bastion Point – there really is a Bastion Point in Auckland, New Zealand, and it’s famous for Maori land protests. Incidentally, while the book blurb calls it “Bastian Point”, it’s “Bastion Point” inside. Oops.

    I’m also not convinced by the references to Conan Lord Penvenen (which made me think of Conan the Barbarian. Sorry). Shouldn’t that be Conan, Lord Penvenen? Or simply Conan, as they are talking about a close family friend?

    My other issue was with the character of Rowan. We find out more about him as the story progresses, with some major revelations towards the end. While these did explain some of the questions I’d had about Rowan’s character, they also left me feeling as if I’d been deceived. Rowan was a viewpoint character, and while he was romantic and reliable as the hero, he was an unreliable narrator, and I felt as if all the conflict around his background was manufactured for the sake of introducing conflict, rather than being an intrinsic part of the story.

    Despite these faults I did enjoy A Lady’s Honor. It was a good combination of suspense, mystery and romance with a strong underlying Christian message about treasure and unconditional love. However, I didn’t enjoy it enough to read it again, and I’m not convinced I enjoyed it enough to bother reading the sequel when it comes out.

    A Lady's Honor is the latest novel by Laurie Alice Eakes. This book is the first installment of her Cliffs of Cornwall series.

    You meet Elizabeth Trelawny, as she is fleeing from the Marquess of Romsford, the man her parents are trying to force her to marry. The Marquess is definitely not the type of man with whom she wants to spend her life! Elizabeth thinks that the man, who rescues her, is her brother, Drake; only to find that Rowan Curnow has tricked her as he helps her flee to her grandparents home in Cornwall.

    Elizabeth arrives at Bastion Point only to find that everything is amiss. Her brother, Drake, is in the process of being shipped to America, to avoid being killed by local smugglers; her cousin, Morwenna, is pregnant by a man she will not name and her dear friend, Conan Penvensn, has been killed!

    Join Elizabeth and Rowan as they try to discover who is responsible for the unrest in this corner of Cornwall. Along the way, Elizabeth also discovers the unconditional love that God alone has for her!

    I received this book from Zondervan in exchange for my unbiased review

    Elizabeth (Elys) Trelawny is running from a marriage she doesn't want to a very dangerous and evil man in 1811. He's already had 2 wives murdered and she doesn't want to be the 3rd. Still her parents try to force the marriage because Romsfeld is a man of class and wealth.

    So Elizabeth literally runs. She runs for her life with Romsfeld on her trail. Then who she thinks is her brother sweeps her away to safety only to discover it's a stranger....but one she's seen before.

    She is drawn to Rowan Curnow but he is considered beneath her as he is only a secretary to Austell Penvenan. Austell decides he wants Elizabeth and her money for himself.

    Rowan has vowed to protect Elizabeth, and her two cousins...the plea of his friend before he was brutally murdered. Elizabeth is struggling with her faith, her love of Rowan (a man she feels she can't marry because of her family status and their expectations). Does Rowan love her for who she is and not her money? Can Jesus truly love her for who she is when she's never know unconditional love on earth?

    A wonderful story that is full of love, excitement, mystery, greed, and finding God's love.

    I received this book for free from the publisher through Book Look Bloggers for review. All opinions are my own. I was not required to give a positive review, I just liked the book!
