Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Camden’s inspirational fiction takes listeners on an unparalleled emotional journey.

In The Rose of Winslow Street, Libby Sawyer and her father return from summer vacation to find another family living in their home. Widower Michael Dobrescu brought his family all the way from Romania to stake a decades-old claim on their house, and he has no plans to leave. As a contentious legal battle drags on, Libby finds herself drawn to Michael and his mysterious past. But she’ll soon have to choose between her family and a man with decidedly unclear intentions.

Refreshing!

Any additional comments?

I don't usually write reviews but this book was so beautiful I had to share. Not only was the story great the narration was wonderful Barbara Rosenblat is one of my fav narrators but she out did herself on this book she made the characters come alive for me. The story made me cry and Barbara made it real. I love romance novels and don't get me wrong I do like a little trashy sex scenes sometimes but this story just didn't need it. I loved it! Buy it! Worth your credit ? Yes!

1879 Liberty Meets Her Match

In Colden, Massachusetts a rag-tag family of Romanian squatters have moved into Professor Sawyer's home . . . brusque, oddly handsome and protective, yet totally out of line, taking over their house, Michael manages to charm Liberty (Libby), the professor's daughter . . . for a little while . . . with the court case looming to prove who actually owns the house, Libby and Michael begin to forge a friendship . . . as do Libby and Michael's sons, Luke and Andre . . . and Libby learns more about Michael's wounded sister, Mirela . . . the story is multi-layered, very interesting . . . with the inventions of Professor Sawyer, Libby's paintings, the story of the roses, and the wonderful weaving in of the making of perfume . . . but the very best . . . its the heart of a woman to see the best in others . . . to seek out good . . . which only comes from our Lord . . . not from a book, not from school, not from a university, but only from God . . . for He gives us beauty from ashes . . . The Rose of Winslow Street is one of the most satisfying, and GOOD books I've ever listened to . . . its not religious, but it is full of the kind of love that only God gives . . . BRAVO, Elizabeth Camden!

You will enjoy this book

Great read. Some places in the book should have been expanded but the book was enjoyable. The main character (Libby) eventually got a backbone to stand up to her father with the help of Michael (the other main character). Romance, intrigue/mystery. Finished the book in a day.

A trifecta!!!

I have listened to several other Elizabeth Camden books since I discovered this author because she is a very well-rounded author who does her homework and is very ingeniously creative with characters and plots within a well researched historical context. This novel is now my favorite from this genre. Here is why I consider it a trifecta: 1) The character are superbly developed! Each character's personality and/or peculiarity come through extremely well. 2) Elizabeth Camden also creates a very intricately woven storyline building a true verisimilitude by making the plot seem plausible with well developed pieces like geopolitical contexts, cultural issues, and historical context. 3) And as if the story were not already rich in so many ways, the narrator, Barbara Rosenblat brings the nuances of the different cultures to life with her expertly delivered accents . Bravo!

I'm stingy with my ratings.

This story is a gem with layers. The hero isn't perfect but he loves fiercely and loyally. The object of his love is the typical female. Her kindness makes excuses for family which causes her to not comprehend someone valuing her the way he does. She grows into it. His love for his sister makes him look like a brute in the beginning but he has layers.
I read the story originally and when I heard the sample audio I had to do it again even tho some of it is hard to experience again so soon. So good

Wonderful story



Wonderful story
My favorite book so far by Elizabeth Camden and I've read several. Didn't care for the raspy voice of the narrator though.

Original

Loved this story, and the narration was perfect! I'm so glad I listened to it instead of read it, because all the accents were so well done. Such an interesting tapestry of characters and conflict.

Delightful!

This is the first book/audible I have listened to by this author and can I say, I am so glad to begin with this amazing story! At first it was hard to get use to the narrator's voice, but as the story went on, it became perfect!

The story of a young lady and her father who return home and find their home taken over by a Romanian family. They claimed it was their inheritance from the the last owner, who had also been Romanian.

Full of mystery, angst, amazing characters, either main or side characters, subtle humor that made me smile so much and a journey to love and discoveries that change life as they knew it..

I cannot wait to listen to more and am thankful for this new author to me!

Awesome story and Narration!

This is going on one of my favorite books list! I didn’t want it to end! I love the history and cultures and how he is an amazing gentleman and really understands her and sees her for her. And how she was able to handle her father with love and honor in spite of how he was to her. I wish I could do that. And he honored her for that too and waited for her! Wow. Truly beautiful. I wish my father could learn that. And God would send me that one person I would be able to trust and be myself with.

Can't finish it

Super boring story, then an attempted suicide and mention of sexual assault. Not the sort of thing I enjoy listening to. I don't understand the positive reviews.
