The Nature of a Lady is the enchanting first book in The Secrets of the Isles series.  This story will immediately propel you to the Isles of Scilly, Cornwall 1906.  It was a great escape.

Lady Elizabeth, Libby, Sinclair decides to “run away” to the Islands of Scilly for the summer in order to escape her parent’s plans for her to marry.  Libby decides to stay in the cottage owned by her family.  She finds some mysterious notes left behind at the cottage that belonged to some previous guests. But when Libby meets Clergyman Oliver Tremayne, they quickly become friends.  Libby helps Oliver as he investigates what is going on with his sister Beth.  In the process, the adventures that turn up are so amazingly entertaining.  As the story continues Libby and Oliver start to uncover the truths about Beth and all the secrets she’s been hiding.  The twists and turns that take place, makes this a wonderful historical fiction with a dash of mystery. 

I loved this story.  It was amazing to me how relatable the characters were in this story.  They were very well developed and the detailed description of Cornwall is so vivid that you actually feel like you are there.  I am so glad that this is the start of a new series, and I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.  Thank you Rosanna M. White for such a fantastic read.

Lady Elizabeth "Libby" Sinclair, with her love of microscopes and nature, isn't favored in society. She flees to the beautiful Isles of Scilly for the summer and stumbles into the dangerous secrets left behind by her holiday cottage's former occupant, also named Elizabeth, who mysteriously vanished. 

Oliver Tremayne--gentleman and clergyman--is determined to discover what happened to his sister, and he's happy to accept the help of the girl now living in what should have been Beth's summer cottage . . . especially when he realizes it's the curious young lady he met briefly two years ago, who shares his love of botany and biology. But the hunt for his sister involves far more than nature walks, and he can't quite believe all the secrets Beth had been keeping from him.

As Libby and Oliver work together, they find ancient legends, pirate wrecks, betrayal, and the most mysterious phenomenon of all: love.
