Review: The Elusive Miss Ellison
`The Elusive Miss Ellison` is a Christian romance book written by author Carolyn Miller. Carolyn Miller lives in New South Wales, Australia, and her books have won a number of RWA and ACFW contests. I was pleased to see this book was endorsed by one of my favorite authors, Carrie Turansky - award winning author of `A Refuge of Highland Hall.`
I believe my one takeaway from this book is that through sickness, and death, God has promised eternal life to those that confess with their mouth Lord Jesus, and believe in their heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. This compares greatly to what I have been taught. The book accomplished my reassurance of my faith. The author's approach to this subject is descriptive. We can never be good enough to be saved, it is a gift from God. (see page 148).
The author proves her point by quoting from the Holy Scriptures. I find the evidence convincing, making this a great book for seekers and believers who also enjoy historical fiction.
I feel the characters worked well together. I chose this book because I was intrigued by the title. However, it took me to the middle of the book to finally appreciate the writing. It seemed to be rather dry until it finally captured me. I wanted to set it down and stop reading it several times. I am glad I stuck with it to the very end. This is book one of the `Regency Brides` series. Book two is `The Captivating Lady Charlotte.
