The Sound of Diamonds by Rachelle Rae Cobb ~ A Review

The Story:
With the protestant Elizabeth on the throne of England and her family in shambles, Catholic maiden Gwyneth seeks refuge in the Low Countries of Holland, hoping to soothe her aching soul. But when the Iconoclastic Fury descends and bloodshed overtakes her haven, she has no choice but to trust the rogue who arrives, promising to see her safely home to her uncle’s castle. She doesn’t dare to trust him…and yet doesn’t dare to refuse her one chance to preserve her own life and those of the nuns she rescues from the burning convent.

Dirk Godfrey is determined to restore his honor at whatever cost. Running from a tortured past, Dirk knows he has only one chance at redemption, and it lies with the lovely Gwyneth, who hates him for the crimes she thinks he committed. He must see her to safety, prove to the world that he is innocent, prove that her poor eyesight is not the only thing that has blinded her but what is he to do when those goals clash?

Autumn Update!

Hello all! Happy Fall!

It has been a little quiet here of late, but never fear, good things are coming soon. I have a few book giveaways in the works as well as reviews of books that are sure to encourage and lift your spirits. I don't know about you, but as the days get shorter and the nights get chillier, I get a little bummed. I'm a child of the summer. The beach, the sun, even the humidity, I miss it. Fall and winter are perfect seasons for snuggling under the covers with a good book and a hot cuppa.

Fall is also a great time to sneak a peek at what's to come. Publishers' catalogs of the books to come in spring and summer are making their debuts online. Perusing them is a hobby of mine. You have to get ahead and decide which books you just NEED to preorder. Am I right? says the girl with an already overflowing TBR pile! Hey, one can never have too many books! I'm really looking forward to A Lady in Disguise by Sandra Byrd as well as Laura Frantz's A Moonbow…
