Prelude for a Lord
By Camille Elliot
Zondervan, 2014. 343 pages. Romance.
Alethea Sutherton has a secret: she is an extremely talented violinist but the strictures of the day threaten her with social ostracism if anyone were to find out. When someone starts showing an alarming amount of interest in her violin, however, she is forced to turn to talented (and brooding) violinist Lord Dommick to discover what is so unique about her violin that someone would turn to robbery and kidnapping to get it. In the course of their adventures, both will have to learn to trust in both God and each other.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable read. Elliot has created engaging and believable characters and balanced them with enough action (both in their inner struggles and in their external circumstances) to keep the reader wanting to know more. The writing was easy to read but evocative and kept a good pace throughout.
