I received a copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers for free in exchange for my honest review.
Born of Persuasion (Price of Privilege) is a wonderfully crafted book about a girl in the 1800s who goes through many things as a result of being orphaned and unmarried. Women in this time were property of fathers and husbands, the forward says, and Julia Elliston has neither.
I absolutely adored this book. I had a hard time getting this review done, as the story is quite a gothic classic and I am not generally a reader of that genre. I took my time to absorb it, and I apologize for the delay.
If you love Austen and Bronte , you will love this book. The author, Jessica Dotta, breathes new life into a rich and captivating genre that is rarely represented in current writings.
The emotions in this book are very strong and it helps connect to the character, Julia. To be transported to a time when women were property felt alien at first, but the impeccably well-written passages really give the feel that the world and it's characters could exist, or have existed. I love that realness in fiction.
Pick a copy up soon! You will not regret it.
