I loved this novel. I got it when it was in 3 parts and after the 1st book I got both the others so wouldn’t have to wait and go straight onto it. It was a beautifully written book. The discriptions of scenes etc were so real that I could feel myself there. The twists I certainly didn’t see coming. This is my type of book, romance but drama interwoven into it. It is as good as any I have read from other famous authors. I couldn’t put it down and look forward to reading more from this up and coming author.

5.0 out of 5 starsRomantic read

This is a great read, lovely romantic story. At the end you love both the main characters. Reminds me of Barbara Cartland novels

A delightful story! August 19, 2015
Rachel cannot see anymore. The inconceivable occurred. She sustained a carriage accident, and her injuries stole away her vision. She is young and she was ready to make her debut into the social order of her day. Just like all young ladies she had desired to meet a handsome young man. Tall and pensive Lord Thomas Montgomery, III, feels the weight of so many matriarch mothers persisting to set him up with their daughters. His own family including his father, mother and their parents are pressuring him as well to get hitched. He’ll need to find someone, but he’ll also need be cautious so as not to get in step with the wrong woman. Tag along with Rachel as she endeavors to discover love. During a time when arranged marriages are prevalent, Racheal has to beat the odds life has handed her. Rachel: A Darkened Path: is the first book in a series. If you’re considering a new author’s books, then I recommend Christina Matson. Her book is a delightful story that catches your attention from the very first page!
