Born of Persuasion

In “Born of Persuasion” by Jessica Dotta we meet Julia Elliston. Julia has lost both of her parents and is now at the mercy of an unknown guardian. Her guardian plans to send her to Scotland as a servant. In order to prevent that from happening, Julia starts to devise her own plan. She visits her best friend Elizabeth and her mother. Through a series of events Julia is sponsored by a titled dowager, Lady Foxmore. Lady Foxmore is charged with finding Julia a husband and soon. When Lady Foxmore is invited to visit the reclusive Mr. Macy she decides to take Julia along. When Julia arrives at the estate she knows that everyone is hiding something from her. Mr. Macy tells her that her life is in danger and that he is her only protection. He sets out to court her with the hopes that marriage will keep her safe. Julia starts falling for him and just when everything is going smoothly her former fiancé Edward shows up. Julia receives shock after shock and does not know who to trust. Who will she turn to?

This is the first book in the Price of Privilege trilogy and it will keep you turning the pages. The story is full of intrigue and deception and will keep you wondering what will happen next. In this book Julia was raised an atheist but she longs for the love of Edward the vicar. She knows she can never be an atheist and a vicar’s wife. Edward wants to save her and show her the truth. In this book we see Julia start to waver in her beliefs. This book will leave you hanging and ready for the next book as the story continues. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Tyndale House Publishers.
