The Elusive Miss Ellison

I have discovered a new Christian author, Carolyn Miller.  Her first novel, The Elusive Miss Ellison, was a delightful read.  You will meet Miss Lavinia Ellison on the opening pages.  She is a young woman, living in St. Hampton Heath with her minister father, taking care of the needs of the poor and sick in her village. Lavinia soon meets Nicholas, the Earl of Hawksbury, the brother of the man, who killed her beloved mother!

When Lavinia has an accident, as she is walking in the rain, and falls ill with small pox, she must take shelter in the Earl's home until she recovers.  You will soon see the relationship between  Lavinia and Nicholas change from foe to something much dearer.  Watch and see Lavinia learn to forgive the sins of the past and Nicholas learn to humble himself and lay down his pride before our awesome God!

You will not believe what occurs when you follow both Nicholas and Lavinia to London.  Lavinia has an entire family she never knew about!  The details of Lavinia's life are about to get very complicated.  Hold on until the final page!
