The Nature of a Lady (The Secrets of the Isles #1) by Roseanna M. White

My thoughts: 
This lovely story takes place on the Isles of Scilly off the coast of Cornwall. I frankly loved the folks in the story that reside on the islands. Their sweetness, their caring, their crankiness, their feuds, and their love and friendship. I can imagine the breezes blowing off the water across the small land masses and the lovely skies and water scenes.

Life on the isles meets an "invasion" of Lords and Ladies from England as they vacation on the islands, meet up with acquaintances, and generally bring an atmosphere of interference into the lives of the good folks on the island.

These islands have a history where pirates, treasures, and secrets abound. 

The spiritual aspect of the story is well done. The romance sweet and gentle. The struggles of a woman scientifically minded, well presented. The mystery, interesting, but not captivating. 

While beautifully written, I found the book to be a very slow read and I soon lost interest so had to put it aside. Then pick it back up and try again until I reached the end and was glad I had read the lovely story. 

About the book: Fleeing to the beautiful Isles of Scilly, Lady Elizabeth Sinclair stumbles upon dangerous secrets left behind by her cottage's former occupant, and agrees to help the missing girl's brother, Oliver Tremayne, find his sister. As the two work together, they uncover ancient legends, pirate wrecks, betrayal, and the most mysterious phenomenon of all: love.
