“From This Moment” ~ Book Review

Jul 11, 2016 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing Elizabeth Camden’s newest release, From This Moment.


As is my custom, if I could ask Elizabeth one question about From This Moment it would be — “Romulus and Stella had such a way of arguing — was it fun writing out those arguments?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!


And without further ado, onto Rachel’s Back Talk!

From the Back Cover:

Romulus White has tried for years to hire illustrator Stella West for his renowned scientific magazine. She is the missing piece he needs to propel his magazine to the forefront of the industry.

But Stella abruptly quit the art world and moved to Boston with a single purpose: to solve the mysterious death of her beloved sister. Romulus, a man with connections to high society and every important power circle in the city, could be her most valuable ally.

Sparks fly the instant Stella and Romulus join forces, and Romulus soon realizes the strong-willed and charismatic Stella could disrupt his hard-won independence. Can they continue to help each other when their efforts draw the wrong kind of attention from the powers-that-be and put all they’ve worked for at risk?

There hasn’t been an Elizabeth Camden book that I haven’t thoroughly enjoyed — and From This Moment was no exception! From mystery to excitement to romance to faith, this book captured my attention for the duration of our 14 hour car trip!

I absolutely loved Stella! Her steel and determination to discover the truth that she knew was hidden was remarkable. Even though she was discouraged, she still managed to push forward. She sometimes had a bit of stubbornness and selfishness, but she was learning to rely on God’s help to overcome that.

It was also great to see more of Romulus, Evelyn, and Clyde. Although I was originally discouraged at what had happened to Clyde and Evelyn (no spoilers!), it was wonderful to see their marriage from the novella grow and weather the storms that came from life.

Romulus also grew and matured from the novella and I enjoyed seeing the perfect match that he and Stella made. Though Romulus tried to stifle his love for Stella, with God’s help, he realized that he was able to overcome his fear of turning out like his parents and work towards beginning a life with Stella.


This book has been given to me by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review which I have given.
