Lady of a Thousand Treasures, by Sandra Byrd, is a marvelous book. Set in England during the Victorian era, this story tells of men and women put in extremely difficult situations.
Eleanor Sheffield, a trained evaluator of antiques, is given the task of determining whether the baron’s legendary collection should be donated to a museum or left within the family. The situation becomes more complicated because she has been both a lifelong friend of the family and in love with the new heir, Harry. With her family’s business in jeopardy after her father’s death and her uncle’s continuing mental decline, donating it would provide much needed future income. But she doesn’t truly want to remove it from its true home, with Harry. She must decide if she can trust him enough to make the right choice.
I enjoyed this book. While I found it a little slow in the beginning, only a few chapters later I found that I did not want to put it down. I especially liked Orchie and Alice, with their unwavering support for Eleanor.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian historical fiction.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
