It has been hard for me to get through books lately, but I sailed through Sterling Redmond, intrigued by many of the characters, but especially Sterling herself - the intelligent, bold heroine of the novel - my kind of gal. It's one of those stories you immediately can imagine as a movie and can't help but cast it as you read. The setting is described beautifully - the grandness of both the country estates, downtown Baltimore back in the day, and the countryside in between. It's an intelligent, fun read.

My mailbox just reminded me to review my latest purchases, so here I go.
I think other reviewers have said enough about the wonderful plot
This story gripped me from the very first sentence which is quite an achievement.
But the entire time I felt compelled and driven to read on, there was a very good rhythm and tempo to it all.

This is not my usual genre for novels, but I could NOT put this book down. It was a real 'page turner' for me. The characters, the locations and the plot were vividly described and mapped out. I shall look forward to this author's next book!

Oh my. My second historical of the week and this is a complete 180 from the other one that I read. This is a great story of family, star-crossed lovers, revenge, privilege, scandal and in the end true love. I loved this book. I read it one day and I'm still thinking about it.

I will say there is a lot going on and there are a lot of characters to remember what the relation to everyone but the main characters, Nicholas and Sterling are perfect. Their first meeting is intense, emotional and sigh worthy. I instantly fell in love with both of them. I cheered for them, cried for them and in the end felt that the ending of the book was the only way for them. :)

There were a couple of things that I didn't like though. I hated Charlotte and her treatment of others including her family, In the end, she was selfish, conceited and a brat that needed a spanking and not in a good way. George was another character that was horrible to everyone around him. His scenes were hard to take and they dealt with a topic that was swept under the rug a lot during that time period. I really liked that Ms. Nathan didn't shy away from it nor prettied it up for the reader. Great job.

Did I mention that the book takes several years to be told? I like that in a historical book because I don't have to rush through the reading. The writer takes me on a journey through the written words on the page and this was one of the most beautiful told story that I have read in a while. I felt like I was in the countryside of Maryland not to mention Paris.

Keep in mind that this is a true historical written in the manner of Hyer, so the sex is behind closed doors but the tension build is great.

I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Sterling Redmond, a historical romance penned by Kim Nathan, takes us back to the Gilded Age in America, where wealthy American businessmen and their wives tried to marry their wealthy daughters to either titled gentlemen in Europe or their rich counterparts on the East Coast. A period of time when women still had little to no legal rights to determine their own lives, Ms. Nathan's tale centers on two wealthy sisters, their husbands and the passing people in their lives. While many in America were struggling financially after the civil war, this story focuses on the wealthy and a woman whose character and personality would be at home in the modern world.

A wealthy, young debutante, Sterling Redmond has just returned to America from a 2 year trip to Europe. While both her wealthy grandfather and her older sister, Charlotte, had hoped she would come back a bride. Sterling comes back a more refined person but still enjoys the challenge of riding horses, reading scholarly works and being physically active. While she knows it's inevitable that she'll eventually have to marry, she never planned on falling in love with her sister's gentleman fiancee.

Nicholas Pembroke, the third son of a titled English gentleman, has settled in America to make a new life. A wealthy man, due to marrying money, he struggles to get over the death of his wife in childbirth. Knowing it's time to move on, he finds himself drawn to the country area in the Baltimore area and meets wealthy businessman Andrew Redmond, who naturally introduces him to his beautiful granddaughter Charlotte.

I got this as a free Amazon Prime lend because even though it had mixed reviews the blurb about it sounded like something I would enjoy, and well, it was free.

Oh man, I loved this book.
Sure a lot of what people complained about was true. No one in it ends up married to the person they love. There is a lot of adultery going on. And yeah - it's not exactly a happy book.

BUT -
Watching and waiting for how Sterling and Nicholas will end up together, because you know they just have to, kept me going. Plus the way that nothing stopped them from loving each other, not even them trying not to, was just so heartbreaking and romantic. It was like a Victorian romance brought slightly up to date.

To top it off, this book was a super fast read. Once I got into the book I just couldn't put it down.
