Ashes on the Moor Reviews

    Ashes on the Moor is a great book for anyone who, like me, looooooves North and South, either the BBC production or the Elizabeth Gaskell novel it's based upon. I couldn't help picturing Dermot as Richard Armitage as I read. :) The setting, factory woes, even the emotion of the book......

    I can't even imagine the amount of research that went into writing this one. Ms. Eden clearly spent a lot of time studying the time period and people and was able to write a story that easily transports you back to that time. As always, Ms. Eden is a great writer, is able to create wel...

    This story is very inspiring as it progresses, but it definitely starts out somber. Right away, deep sympathy is felt for Evangeline and her situation. It's hard to imagine being thrust into an unfamiliar situation and expected to be successful, but she has good reasons to work hard an...

    It's always a happy day when a new book by Sarah Eden comes out. I am such a fan of her writing and her stories. She has a gift for weaving me right into her stories where I feel such a part of whatever emotion or activity that is going on and she does it so gently. I think that's one ...

    This book suffered from a completely unbelievable plot. From the strange behavior of Mrs Barton to the unrealistic for the time period attitudes and ideas of Evangeline it just did not work for me. The characters were what ultimately made this work at all. Eden has a great ability to l...

    This book is evidence of just why I love this author's writing! Even though the tone in the beginning is despondent as Evangeline mourns her family and struggles with her new circumstances, it shows how much she grows and how time slowly heals. She does not seem particularly strong or ...

    I couldn't wait this book to come out. I am a huge fan of Sarah Eden and I can't think of a book she's written that I didn't like. This one was no exception! In Ashes on the Moor, we meet Evangeline Blake who has just lost her family. With only her sister left, she clings to her as ...

    Evangeline has lost everyone in her immediate family except for her sister Lucy. But when their aunt comes to take them away from their upper class city home to a small factory town on the moor, she takes away even Lucy?who is sent off to boarding school. Evangeline is assigned the j...

    I was so excited to get to read this new book by Sarah M. Eden. Firstly, I love the cover--it's gorgeous. Evangeline and her 12 yr. old sister, Lucy, lost their parents and their brothers to a sudden illness. Right after the funeral they must leave the only home they've known to go ...

    This was so well done. This is not a light fluffy romance. There is so much depth to it. I am a huge fan of the Hallmark Series When Calls the Heart. In many ways, this reminds me of that TV series but there are also many differences. Evangeline is not a teacher by choice and she ha...

    ***4.5 stars*** Evangeline Blake's world is torn from her after the tragic death of her parents and brothers. She is forced to leave her home and accept the "benevolence" of her aunt and grandfather. Not all is as she was lead to believe it would be and her true character is tested ...

    Ugh. I disliked this book. Which for a Sarah M Eden book is really really sad. I tend to love her books and trust that she'll give me a wonderful story, one that will make me laugh or make me cry. I've never had a book by her that wanted to make me tear my hair out with boredom unt...

    If you?re looking for a Regency romance with complex characters, an intriguing story line, a well developed and inviting setting, and a happy ending, look no further! You will not only cheer for Evangeline and Dermot?s happy ending, but also root for them as they work together to o...

    Ashes on the Moor is another beautiful story told by a brilliant author. I love Sarah Eden's books. She has an expert way of telling a story. The author created a perfectly subtle way of explaining the different dialects to the reader, all while keeping the story and characters flowing...

    I so enjoy Eden's writing style. You get very complex situations. It's almost always like a fairytale where the characters are in deep sadness and bad situations and they find the strength to pull themselves out of it. She has two kinds of books, the light hearted and the tug your hear...

    This why Sarah is one of my go to authors. She writes in a way to connect you with the characters and the storyline. I felt like I was in Yorkshire and feeling the frustration Evangeline dealt with. Her books definitely have earned a place on my bookshelf. ...

    A young English lady is forced by her Aunt to take a teaching position in a small town to prove her ability to take care of herself so she can get custody of her younger sister. She comes from a family of wealth, but her grandfather has control of her inheritance so she must prove she ...

    2.5 stars. I've previously stated that I was done with this author. The works that I've read by her (with the exception of The Sheriffs of Savage Wells, which was wonderful) have been flops for me. However, I saw that she'd published a new book, the library system had it for me to ...

    Well, we all know how I feel about Proper Romance Books, but this is Proper Romance plus Sarah Eden. Yes, Please!!!! I love this author. I like all of the authors, but I don?t know if I just enjoy her so much because I have actually met and talked with her a few times. She is such a ...

    After the loss of nearly her entire family, Evangeline ends up teaching in a Yorkshire town where there has been no school for a long time. Although the author?s anchors in real time require that the book be set in the 1870s, there are clear echoes of Gaskell here, and the characters...

    First sentence: Through a thick fog of grief, Evangeline Blake suffered the blow of each clang of the distant funeral bells. Premise/plot: When the novel opens, Evangeline Blake, our heroine, has lost everything--almost. She has lost a father, a mother, and two brothers. Lucy, her y...

    This was so well done. This is not a light fluffy romance. There is so much depth to it. I am a huge fan of the Hallmark Series When Calls the Heart. In many ways, this reminds me of that TV series but there are also many differences. Evangeline is not a teacher by choice and she ha...

    ***4.5 stars*** Evangeline Blake's world is torn from her after the tragic death of her parents and brothers. She is forced to leave her home and accept the "benevolence" of her aunt and grandfather. Not all is as she was lead to believe it would be and her true character is tested ...

    Ashes on the Moor is a great book for anyone who, like me, looooooves North and South, either the BBC production or the Elizabeth Gaskell novel it's based upon. I couldn't help picturing Dermot as Richard Armitage as I read. :) The setting, factory woes, even the emotion of the book......

    I can't even imagine the amount of research that went into writing this one. Ms. Eden clearly spent a lot of time studying the time period and people and was able to write a story that easily transports you back to that time. As always, Ms. Eden is a great writer, is able to create wel...

    This story is very inspiring as it progresses, but it definitely starts out somber. Right away, deep sympathy is felt for Evangeline and her situation. It's hard to imagine being thrust into an unfamiliar situation and expected to be successful, but she has good reasons to work hard an...

    It's always a happy day when a new book by Sarah Eden comes out. I am such a fan of her writing and her stories. She has a gift for weaving me right into her stories where I feel such a part of whatever emotion or activity that is going on and she does it so gently. I think that's one ...

    This book suffered from a completely unbelievable plot. From the strange behavior of Mrs Barton to the unrealistic for the time period attitudes and ideas of Evangeline it just did not work for me. The characters were what ultimately made this work at all. Eden has a great ability to l...

    This book is evidence of just why I love this author's writing! Even though the tone in the beginning is despondent as Evangeline mourns her family and struggles with her new circumstances, it shows how much she grows and how time slowly heals. She does not seem particularly strong or ...

    Ugh. I disliked this book. Which for a Sarah M Eden book is really really sad. I tend to love her books and trust that she'll give me a wonderful story, one that will make me laugh or make me cry. I've never had a book by her that wanted to make me tear my hair out with boredom unt...

    If you?re looking for a Regency romance with complex characters, an intriguing story line, a well developed and inviting setting, and a happy ending, look no further! You will not only cheer for Evangeline and Dermot?s happy ending, but also root for them as they work together to o...

    Ashes on the Moor is another beautiful story told by a brilliant author. I love Sarah Eden's books. She has an expert way of telling a story. The author created a perfectly subtle way of explaining the different dialects to the reader, all while keeping the story and characters flowing...

    I so enjoy Eden's writing style. You get very complex situations. It's almost always like a fairytale where the characters are in deep sadness and bad situations and they find the strength to pull themselves out of it. She has two kinds of books, the light hearted and the tug your hear...

    This why Sarah is one of my go to authors. She writes in a way to connect you with the characters and the storyline. I felt like I was in Yorkshire and feeling the frustration Evangeline dealt with. Her books definitely have earned a place on my bookshelf. ...

    A young English lady is forced by her Aunt to take a teaching position in a small town to prove her ability to take care of herself so she can get custody of her younger sister. She comes from a family of wealth, but her grandfather has control of her inheritance so she must prove she ...

    2.5 stars. I've previously stated that I was done with this author. The works that I've read by her (with the exception of The Sheriffs of Savage Wells, which was wonderful) have been flops for me. However, I saw that she'd published a new book, the library system had it for me to ...

    Well, we all know how I feel about Proper Romance Books, but this is Proper Romance plus Sarah Eden. Yes, Please!!!! I love this author. I like all of the authors, but I don?t know if I just enjoy her so much because I have actually met and talked with her a few times. She is such a ...

    Another great book by Sarah M Eden. I like that it was set in the moors and that once again, I fell in love with our characters pretty easily. This author has the magic to make me feel as sad as the characters and also enjoy their triumphs. Can't wait for her next book! ...

    No need for a review really. I love Sarah M Eden. There was a heaviness in this book but of course so enjoyable to read. She really has a talent for weaving romance ...

    Evangeline's whole life has changed in an instant when her entire family died suddenly, except for herself and her younger sister. Her sister, Lucy, is sent to boarding school, and Evangeline is forced by her aunt to survive as a school teacher in a small town in North England, regardl...

    Obviously, seeing how I've read almost all of her books now, I love Sarah Eden. :) ...

    Lets start with the love - 'Ashes on the Moor' has a beautiful cover, creative title, beautiful location and a fantastic cast of characters to give every aspect of this story depth and uniqueness. I haven't read a historical fiction that follows the lines of this plot and I enjoyed tha...

    I'm a huge fan of Sarah M. Eden's, so it always feels like a bit of a betrayal to give her anything less than 4 stars, but this one just didn't connect with me on the same level that her others did. It was entertaining, and I'm glad I read it, but I don't think it's one that I will rea...

    Ashes on the Moor is a great book for anyone who, like me, looooooves North and South, either the BBC production or the Elizabeth Gaskell novel it's based upon. I couldn't help picturing Dermot as Richard Armitage as I read. :) The setting, factory woes, even the emotion of the book......

    I can't even imagine the amount of research that went into writing this one. Ms. Eden clearly spent a lot of time studying the time period and people and was able to write a story that easily transports you back to that time. As always, Ms. Eden is a great writer, is able to create wel...

    This story is very inspiring as it progresses, but it definitely starts out somber. Right away, deep sympathy is felt for Evangeline and her situation. It's hard to imagine being thrust into an unfamiliar situation and expected to be successful, but she has good reasons to work hard an...

    It's always a happy day when a new book by Sarah Eden comes out. I am such a fan of her writing and her stories. She has a gift for weaving me right into her stories where I feel such a part of whatever emotion or activity that is going on and she does it so gently. I think that's one ...

    This book suffered from a completely unbelievable plot. From the strange behavior of Mrs Barton to the unrealistic for the time period attitudes and ideas of Evangeline it just did not work for me. The characters were what ultimately made this work at all. Eden has a great ability to l...

    This book is evidence of just why I love this author's writing! Even though the tone in the beginning is despondent as Evangeline mourns her family and struggles with her new circumstances, it shows how much she grows and how time slowly heals. She does not seem particularly strong or ...

    I couldn't wait this book to come out. I am a huge fan of Sarah Eden and I can't think of a book she's written that I didn't like. This one was no exception! In Ashes on the Moor, we meet Evangeline Blake who has just lost her family. With only her sister left, she clings to her as ...

    Evangeline has lost everyone in her immediate family except for her sister Lucy. But when their aunt comes to take them away from their upper class city home to a small factory town on the moor, she takes away even Lucy?who is sent off to boarding school. Evangeline is assigned the j...

    I was so excited to get to read this new book by Sarah M. Eden. Firstly, I love the cover--it's gorgeous. Evangeline and her 12 yr. old sister, Lucy, lost their parents and their brothers to a sudden illness. Right after the funeral they must leave the only home they've known to go ...

    This was so well done. This is not a light fluffy romance. There is so much depth to it. I am a huge fan of the Hallmark Series When Calls the Heart. In many ways, this reminds me of that TV series but there are also many differences. Evangeline is not a teacher by choice and she ha...

    ***4.5 stars*** Evangeline Blake's world is torn from her after the tragic death of her parents and brothers. She is forced to leave her home and accept the "benevolence" of her aunt and grandfather. Not all is as she was lead to believe it would be and her true character is tested ...

    Ugh. I disliked this book. Which for a Sarah M Eden book is really really sad. I tend to love her books and trust that she'll give me a wonderful story, one that will make me laugh or make me cry. I've never had a book by her that wanted to make me tear my hair out with boredom unt...

    If you?re looking for a Regency romance with complex characters, an intriguing story line, a well developed and inviting setting, and a happy ending, look no further! You will not only cheer for Evangeline and Dermot?s happy ending, but also root for them as they work together to o...

    Ashes on the Moor is another beautiful story told by a brilliant author. I love Sarah Eden's books. She has an expert way of telling a story. The author created a perfectly subtle way of explaining the different dialects to the reader, all while keeping the story and characters flowing...

    I so enjoy Eden's writing style. You get very complex situations. It's almost always like a fairytale where the characters are in deep sadness and bad situations and they find the strength to pull themselves out of it. She has two kinds of books, the light hearted and the tug your hear...

    This why Sarah is one of my go to authors. She writes in a way to connect you with the characters and the storyline. I felt like I was in Yorkshire and feeling the frustration Evangeline dealt with. Her books definitely have earned a place on my bookshelf. ...

    A young English lady is forced by her Aunt to take a teaching position in a small town to prove her ability to take care of herself so she can get custody of her younger sister. She comes from a family of wealth, but her grandfather has control of her inheritance so she must prove she ...

    2.5 stars. I've previously stated that I was done with this author. The works that I've read by her (with the exception of The Sheriffs of Savage Wells, which was wonderful) have been flops for me. However, I saw that she'd published a new book, the library system had it for me to ...

    Well, we all know how I feel about Proper Romance Books, but this is Proper Romance plus Sarah Eden. Yes, Please!!!! I love this author. I like all of the authors, but I don?t know if I just enjoy her so much because I have actually met and talked with her a few times. She is such a ...

    After the loss of nearly her entire family, Evangeline ends up teaching in a Yorkshire town where there has been no school for a long time. Although the author?s anchors in real time require that the book be set in the 1870s, there are clear echoes of Gaskell here, and the characters...

    First sentence: Through a thick fog of grief, Evangeline Blake suffered the blow of each clang of the distant funeral bells. Premise/plot: When the novel opens, Evangeline Blake, our heroine, has lost everything--almost. She has lost a father, a mother, and two brothers. Lucy, her y...

    I am a huge fan of Sarah Eden's books! She has dozens of bestselling and award-winning titles and I've almost read all of them. This new book is another addition to the Proper Romance line and I couldn't wait to read it! The cover is absolutely stunning and Eden's words pulled me compl...

    Grim Not at all to my tastes. My first real disappointment in Eden. It was an awful life in an unjust world. ...

    This books opens to such a sad scene. Evangeline and her younger sister Lucy have just lost their entire family. In their town, the church bell rings once for each year of the life of the deceased. And it's tolling for their mother, their father and their two brothers. They know they h...

    I can't even imagine the amount of research that went into writing this one. Ms. Eden clearly spent a lot of time studying the time period and people and was able to write a story that easily transports you back to that time. As always, Ms. Eden is a great writer, is able to create wel...

    This story is very inspiring as it progresses, but it definitely starts out somber. Right away, deep sympathy is felt for Evangeline and her situation. It's hard to imagine being thrust into an unfamiliar situation and expected to be successful, but she has good reasons to work hard an...

    It's always a happy day when a new book by Sarah Eden comes out. I am such a fan of her writing and her stories. She has a gift for weaving me right into her stories where I feel such a part of whatever emotion or activity that is going on and she does it so gently. I think that's one ...

    This book suffered from a completely unbelievable plot. From the strange behavior of Mrs Barton to the unrealistic for the time period attitudes and ideas of Evangeline it just did not work for me. The characters were what ultimately made this work at all. Eden has a great ability to l...

    This book is evidence of just why I love this author's writing! Even though the tone in the beginning is despondent as Evangeline mourns her family and struggles with her new circumstances, it shows how much she grows and how time slowly heals. She does not seem particularly strong or ...

    I couldn't wait this book to come out. I am a huge fan of Sarah Eden and I can't think of a book she's written that I didn't like. This one was no exception! In Ashes on the Moor, we meet Evangeline Blake who has just lost her family. With only her sister left, she clings to her as ...

    Evangeline has lost everyone in her immediate family except for her sister Lucy. But when their aunt comes to take them away from their upper class city home to a small factory town on the moor, she takes away even Lucy?who is sent off to boarding school. Evangeline is assigned the j...

    I was so excited to get to read this new book by Sarah M. Eden. Firstly, I love the cover--it's gorgeous. Evangeline and her 12 yr. old sister, Lucy, lost their parents and their brothers to a sudden illness. Right after the funeral they must leave the only home they've known to go ...

    This was so well done. This is not a light fluffy romance. There is so much depth to it. I am a huge fan of the Hallmark Series When Calls the Heart. In many ways, this reminds me of that TV series but there are also many differences. Evangeline is not a teacher by choice and she ha...

    ***4.5 stars*** Evangeline Blake's world is torn from her after the tragic death of her parents and brothers. She is forced to leave her home and accept the "benevolence" of her aunt and grandfather. Not all is as she was lead to believe it would be and her true character is tested ...

    Ugh. I disliked this book. Which for a Sarah M Eden book is really really sad. I tend to love her books and trust that she'll give me a wonderful story, one that will make me laugh or make me cry. I've never had a book by her that wanted to make me tear my hair out with boredom unt...

    If you?re looking for a Regency romance with complex characters, an intriguing story line, a well developed and inviting setting, and a happy ending, look no further! You will not only cheer for Evangeline and Dermot?s happy ending, but also root for them as they work together to o...

    Ashes on the Moor is another beautiful story told by a brilliant author. I love Sarah Eden's books. She has an expert way of telling a story. The author created a perfectly subtle way of explaining the different dialects to the reader, all while keeping the story and characters flowing...

    I so enjoy Eden's writing style. You get very complex situations. It's almost always like a fairytale where the characters are in deep sadness and bad situations and they find the strength to pull themselves out of it. She has two kinds of books, the light hearted and the tug your hear...

    This why Sarah is one of my go to authors. She writes in a way to connect you with the characters and the storyline. I felt like I was in Yorkshire and feeling the frustration Evangeline dealt with. Her books definitely have earned a place on my bookshelf. ...

    A young English lady is forced by her Aunt to take a teaching position in a small town to prove her ability to take care of herself so she can get custody of her younger sister. She comes from a family of wealth, but her grandfather has control of her inheritance so she must prove she ...

    2.5 stars. I've previously stated that I was done with this author. The works that I've read by her (with the exception of The Sheriffs of Savage Wells, which was wonderful) have been flops for me. However, I saw that she'd published a new book, the library system had it for me to ...

    Well, we all know how I feel about Proper Romance Books, but this is Proper Romance plus Sarah Eden. Yes, Please!!!! I love this author. I like all of the authors, but I don?t know if I just enjoy her so much because I have actually met and talked with her a few times. She is such a ...

    After the loss of nearly her entire family, Evangeline ends up teaching in a Yorkshire town where there has been no school for a long time. Although the author?s anchors in real time require that the book be set in the 1870s, there are clear echoes of Gaskell here, and the characters...

    First sentence: Through a thick fog of grief, Evangeline Blake suffered the blow of each clang of the distant funeral bells. Premise/plot: When the novel opens, Evangeline Blake, our heroine, has lost everything--almost. She has lost a father, a mother, and two brothers. Lucy, her y...

    I am a huge fan of Sarah Eden's books! She has dozens of bestselling and award-winning titles and I've almost read all of them. This new book is another addition to the Proper Romance line and I couldn't wait to read it! The cover is absolutely stunning and Eden's words pulled me compl...

    Another great book by Sarah M Eden. I like that it was set in the moors and that once again, I fell in love with our characters pretty easily. This author has the magic to make me feel as sad as the characters and also enjoy their triumphs. Can't wait for her next book! ...

    No need for a review really. I love Sarah M Eden. There was a heaviness in this book but of course so enjoyable to read. She really has a talent for weaving romance ...
