The previous books that I had read by this author were war time books set in Europe. While they were wonderful reads, it was nice to read a different sort of story by Roseanna M. White. The Nature of a Lady is set in the early 1900s in the Scillies, a group of islands off the southwest tip of England. The story follows Lady Elizabeth Sinclair; her lady's maid, Mabena Moon; and Mabena's family and friends on the Island of Tresco, all of whom find themselves in the middle of a mystery involving a missing girl, a case of mistaken identity, a possible murder, and treasure. White makes the most of these plot elements, while also exploring the theme of reconciling Christianity and science. The book is a pure pleasure to read, and I will find it quite difficult to wait for the next book in the Secrets of the Isles series.

I am grateful to have received a complimentary copy of The Nature of a Lady from Bethany House via NetGalley without obligation. All opinions expressed here are my own. ( )

This absolutely perfect story had so many elements that I loved. The setting was so picturesque that it made me want to summer in the Scilly Islands. The prose was so poetic: “She’d left the windows open so she could hear the shushing of the waves, as familiar as a mother’s heartbeat. The wind whispered in, kissed her brow. The moon sang a lullaby,” It has a very solid faith thread. And the cover is gorgeous!
Lady Libby Sinclair does not feel she fit within society’s constraints. She loves cataloging and sketching nature. She travels to the Scilly Islands and a curious thing happens. She is mistaken for another Elizabeth. This one happens to be Beth, sister to the local vicar, Oliver Tremayne, who is interested in botany. Libby starts to question the dichotomy of faith and science. Libby connects with the island, its people and especially Oliver’s grandmother and thereby to God. “Libby’s heart added a plea: I ask that you show yourself to me, God.” And Mamm-wynn imparts wisdom: “We see only in part. But there is more. More to this physical world that your magnifying lens can show you. And more still beyond it that we need a spiritual lens to see.”
A mystery is discovered, friendships are forged, and more than one romance to savor.
The ending brought tears to my eyes and a yearning to return to the Scilly Islands for more delightful romances.

I admit it: I get more than just a little excited whenever I hear a new book by Roseanna M. White is in the works. I always wonder if her newest novel could possibly live up to my high expectations. With her May 2021 release, The Nature of a Lady, White has once again blown me away!
The first installment in her Secrets of the Isles series transports readers to the Isles of Scilly off the coast of Cornwall, England, in 1906. It is a wonderful blend of historical mystery and Christian romance about a bright female botanist, Lady Elizabeth “Libby” Sinclair, and Oliver Tremayne, a gentleman and clergyman.
Seeking a break from pressures, Libby ventures to the Isles of Scilly to explore the flora and fauna of the area. Unexpectedly, she stumbles upon some unnerving secrets left behind by the former occupant of the cottage where she is staying for the summer. That lady, who also happens to be named Elizabeth, has gone missing, and Oliver, her brother, is determined to discover what has become of her. He and Libby work together in the search for Beth, which becomes a wild adventure involving everything from castle ruins to pirate wrecks.
White is a master of character development, and her pacing is perfect in this brilliantly written, highly suspenseful tale. The depth of research she has done to make her story historically accurate is obvious in the rich detail she provides.
I highly recommend The Nature of a Lady to fans of historical Christian fiction. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own. ( )

I’m not sure how she does it, but Roseanna White continues to write books that just get better and better! I loved the interesting premise for this novel and the book drew me in right away with its mystery and intrigue. The characters were also easy to like and I found myself wishing that I could be friends with them in real life (I, too, am a lover of biology!). I loved the mysterious aspect of the storyline and was surprised by the many twists throughout the novel. The spiritual truths were well woven without being preachy and the romance is clean and well written. I greatly enjoyed this story and cannot wait for the rest of the series! A most highly recommend read!

This is another excellent story written by one of my favourite authors. The Nature of a Lady is full of good history and romance which we’ve come to expect from this talented story teller. Roseanna M White expands her creativity in this first edition of the Secrets of the Isles series. What begins as a simple summer vacation intended to be an escape from proper English society, ends up full of secrets, old legends, pirates, and buried treasure. The plot builds well. The characters are likeable and relatable. However, the inclusion of certain scientific theories, such as Darwinism, I thought unnecessary. While the science theme was a good one, and one that I support, I would have liked to see a stronger biblical perspective come through by the end. Beyond this one aspect, I recommend this novel to my fellow historical fiction and romance fans. I can’t wait to read book 2!
