Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: The Letter by Edwina Kiernan


Book: The Letter

Author: Edwina Kiernan

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Release date: November 1, 2022

She wants a new life.

He’s in danger of losing his.

Will love solve everything — or immerse them in even worse peril?

Restless and ready for a change, Grace Stratton gladly accepts the opportunity to leave her remote parsonage home to serve as a wealthy spinster’s companion in the idyllic country town of Lindenfell. Its warm atmosphere and friendly inhabitants soothe Grace’s, lonely heart. But when a mysterious stranger arrives, she soon discovers things aren’t always what they seem.

Convinced chloroform will revolutionize the medical world, Dr. David Carbury frequently administers it to his London patients — until one of them dies. Facing a grave trial to prove his innocence and defend a drug most people view as poisonous, he makes hasty plans to buy time to bolster his case. But he wasn’t expecting to face an even deadlier challenge.

As attraction sparks not long after they meet, Grace soon suspects he’s hiding something, and David knows he can’t run from the truth forever.

But neither of them could imagine the sinister threat lurking just around the corner…

Immersed in faith and intrigue, this Christian Victorian romance from award-winning author Edwina Kiernan will encourage and delight you long after you turn the last page.

Christian Historical Romance is one of my favorite genres to read. I truly love the Victorian time period. The Letter by Edwina Kiernan is Book 1 in a new series, Victorian Virtues. I was excited to read this book as I have read other series by Edwina Kiernan and I always enjoy them. 

Grace Stratton is excited about her new start in life. She is embarking on a new journey to the Country town of Lindenfell. She will be working for a Wealthy Spinster's Companion. Grace feels that the new surroundings will be warm and friendly. Grace was not prepared for a mysterious stranger coming to visit and she definitely learned things might not be as they seem. Dr. David Carbury has been administering Chloroform to patients and he believes it is helpful to his patients. A patient dies after receiving Chloroform and now he is facing a trial to show his actions didn't kill the patient and that Chloroform is not poisonous. He is taking a break and "buying time" before his case. Grace and Dr. David have an instant attraction to one another. Grace though soon thinks that David is hiding something. Will Dr. David Carbury be able, to be honest with Grace? Will there be a Romantic relationship between the pair?

WOW, this book is a definite page-turner. I was reeled into the storyline from the very first page. Grace is enjoying her new start in life and then it gets upheaval when Dr. David comes to town.  I LOVE how the characters are both trying to overcome things in their life and it seems that they can both help one another. The characters rely on the Gospel and that is an encouraging part of the book also. The Author really bought the time period to life in this book! I am looking forward to reading more books in this series! FANTASTIC BOOK!

More from Edwina

Have you ever wished you could travel back in time to a place where quaint buildings are bathed with a golden glow in the afternoon light, where the people are polite and respectful, and where the pace of living allows your soul to breathe and just… be?


In that case…


Welcome to Lindenfell!


The Letter introduces us to Grace Stratton (daughter of the hero & heroine from my award-winning novel, Ruby’s Redemption), who accepts a position as a lady’s companion in a place she’s never been before, but where she’ll soon discover a whole new world.


“The air in Lindenfell had a scent of its own — one of warmth and peace. Of hope.”


Lord-willing, the Victorian Virtues series will have nine books, each based on an aspect of the Fruit of the Spirit, and each exploring the historical events and everyday realities that change and challenge eighteen main characters and nine blossoming romances.


Friends and foes, tragedies and triumphs, hopes and heartaches — the best and worst of life, all in one fictional market town in Victorian England.


It is my deepest hope that, as you travel to Lindenfell in each book of the series, you’ll find the truth and hope you need to navigate your own trials and triumphs, and discover that the refreshment your soul longs for is already available to you, wherever you may be.
