Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Outskirts Press is pleased to bring you Gentle Journey by Elaine Bach. In this dazzling debut novel, Ms. Bach spins a pulse-pounding romantic adventure set against the backdrop of Regency England. Gentle Journey is a beautifully written work in which lives are transformed in an unforgetable journey of adventure, passionate emotions, and enduring love. It is a good old- fashioned, inspirational romance with an independent, intelligent, sensitive, and warm heroine and a commanding, thoughtful, chivalrous, and thoroughly romantic hero. Elaine Bach has accomplished a romance that rises above the genre, one that displays an intimate knowledge of the needs of the heart. We look forward to her next novel, also set in the romantic Regency period. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
This uplifting work is a refreshing read on many levels. Aside from being well written and interesting, it's well researched and historically accurate. Believable characters draw the reader into a multifaceted, exciting tale that is sure to satisfy. Throughout, the strong, confident heroine successfully conveys her conviction in an all-loving God. She leaves her `fate' completely in His hands while others, including the object of her affection, challenge her beliefs. The author cleverly reveals Christian values and truths without being `preachy'. This noble work would entertain a wide audience and is truly a `gentle journey'. Readers will be able to identify with and cheer on the characters as they `travel' through. A delight that won't disappoint!

Format: Paperback
Gentle Journey is a gem! It far surpasses what the back cover hints at. It's a delightful, often poignant journey of adventure, humor, romance, wit and wisdom. The historical elements are effortlessly embedded in the story. The characters are genuine, likeably, interesting, and well fleshed out-even the two villians. Lord Edmund is decisive and strong-a man's man. Eden is warm, witty, loving, and wise. The tension and chemistry between the two will cause your heart rate to increase considerably. Then the pace really picks up as Eden finds herself in peril from two separate people. The suspense builds to a most satisfying conclusion. In the debut novel Ms. Bach has crafted a keeper!!!

GENTLE JOURNEY is a beautiful love story set in Regency times. This delightful book will capture your heart as the surprising turn of events will keep you wondering what will happen next.

Eden Barrett's dream is to become an artist, but there's no way she can afford the tuition. After her father's death, she needs to seek employment, and hopes to find an artist needing an assistant or an apprentice. After writing many artists and only one willing to hire her who had questionable motives, she realized this wasn't going to happen.

Since Eden successfully taught her three sisters and two brothers, finding a job as a governess was fairly easy. What she wanted though was a position that would still allow her the opportunity to pursue her dream. There is one job with promise.

Colin Aston, Seventh Earl of Edmond, is in need of a governess for his younger sister, Diane. During Miss Barrett's interview, he discovered who her father was and wanted to send her away. His sister pleas for Eden to stay swayed his decision. Against his better judgment, he hired her but with a warning.

"Miss Barrett...You are daughter of a vicar, a man whose sermons I was privileged to hear as a boy, a very convincing orator. That fact may make your employ more desirable to some. To me it is impediment. I fear you may have inherited the propensity to sermonize. You will teach my sister the usual material without reference to matters of faith if you please. My sister and I are not religious; I will not have her badgered into a belief against her will."

Eden has faith and draws strength from God. Colin has been hurt and his heart is closed. As the attraction between them ignites, forces beyond their control threaten to keep them apart. In the end, Colin will need to find faith in God or risk losing what he holds dear.
