“The Curiosity Keeper” by Sarah E. Ladd, book review
Camille learned to take care of herself when her mother left when she was young. And now as a young adult, she is quite capable of managing her father’s shop. Over the years letters from her mother have become fewer and farther between, and now Camille does not even open them. And her father has become more secretive and distant.
Jonathon is happy being the village apothecary, caring for the sick of the community as well as the children’s school. He is the 2nd son and never intended to inherit Kettering Hall. But when his older brother died, Jonathon became the heir. Now, he must think about the future of his sister, father and the family’s investments. When his father gambles away the family heirloom, Jonathon is sent to London the retrieve it.
This is where Jonathon and Camille have a fateful meeting. Jonathon is given news that the gem he is searching for was last seen at Camille’s father’s store. This changes the path for both of them.
This was a good story and I enjoyed it. Both Jonathon and Camille learn to trust God for their future and to care for others. The characters were well developed and the plot was believable.
