Dusk’s Darkest Shores by Carolyn Miller

Welcome to the blog tour for Dusk’s Darkest Shores by Carolyn Miller!

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.

About the Series

While most stories set in Regency England focus on the rich, the young, and the beautiful, award-winning author Carolyn Miller decided she wanted to give readers something different for a change. Her new Regency Wallflowers series follows the commoners, away from the hustle and bustle of 1810s London, out in the Lake District of England. She tells the stories of women who are slightly older and have few prospects for marriage, women who might be considered “wallflowers.”

My Thoughts

Oh my!  This story oozes depth, emotion, and great characters.  I loved Mary and Adam.  It required no effort to fall in love with them as the author draws you into their lives through struggles that make them realistic.  The descriptions were well written and the scenery of Regency England was easy to visualize.  The story is so exquisitely written!  And most of all, I loved how Carolyn Miller takes spiritual themes and integrates them so seamlessly into this novel.  Relying on faith is a theme that is even applicable to my own life.  I think this was my first novel by this author but it will definitely not be my last!  What a great start to a new series.  I think I shall read some of her older works while I eagerly anticipate the next novel!  Highly recommended!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author as part of the Read with Audra Tour.  Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
