From the Back Cover
After years of tragedy, Gwen Kellerman now lives a quiet life as a botanist at an idyllic New York college. She largely ignores her status as heiress to the infamous Blackstone dynasty and hopes to keep her family's heartbreak and scandal behind her.
Patrick O'Neill survived a hardscrabble youth to become a lawyer for the downtrodden Irish immigrants in his community. He's proud of his work, even though he struggles to afford his ramshackle law office. All that changes when he accepts a case that is sure to emphasize the Blackstones' legacy of greed and corruption by resurrecting a thirty-year-old mystery.
Little does Patrick suspect that the Blackstones will launch their most sympathetic family member to derail him. Gwen is tasked with getting Patrick to drop the case, but the old mystery takes a shocking twist neither of them saw coming. Now, as they navigate a burgeoning attraction and growing danger, Patrick and Gwen will be forced to decide if the risk to the life they've always held dear is worth the reward.

If you are a fan of Tracie Peterson, you will find this book enjoyable. I look forward to seeing where the author takes this series in future. I got this book in exchange for an honest review.

The story's pace is fairly brisk & never lagged. The main characters are richly developed, and I loved how the reader gets to view things from both perspectives, so that we see each side of the divide is capable of being both good and bad - or in other words, fully human.
While I had a suspicion of who the villain was, the mystery was still handled deftly enough to keep me fully immersed. Best of all, the ending is absolutely charming & left me with a big smile on my face. And I'm thrilled that Natalia's story will be next & will involve the crazy Count - sounds fun!
*Romance level: sweet kisses, nothing graphic
*Religion: Patrick is an Irish Catholic & former seminarian who discerned that he was not called to the priesthood prior to receiving Holy Orders. As a Catholic, I greatly appreciate the effort the author made to be accurate & respectful in her depictions. The faith aspects in the story are both cultural & spiritual; the spiritual aspects are universally Christian & flow very naturally from the story.
Carved in Stone was a fantastic story I can only describe as a cross between an American version of Downton Abbey and the series The Men Who Made America!
I loved the main characters, Gwen Blackstone Kellerman as the wealthy yet down to earth heroine, so kind and loving amidst all the wrongs she's experienced and Irish lawyer to the poor and down trodden. Patrick O'Neil. Talk about opposites attracting!
As ever, Camden does an amazing job with her historical research giving readers insight into how potential medicines are studied and developed.
One of my favorite quotes: "Sometimes the greatest strength a man can have is not letting his pride stand in the way of moving in the right direction."
Carved in Stone was everything I hope for when I pick up an Elizabeth Camden book, an excellent story extremely well written. I'm so looking forward to the second book, Written on the Wind.
I have read all of her books and will continue to do so. I am looking forward to book 2 and the Black- stone Legacy. .
Appreciated the way Gwen and Patrick made each other think about things and push beyond their comfort zones. Really enjoyed Liam’s character too. (Really hoping we get a continuation to his story. Please, pretty please!) Looking forward to Natalia’s story next!
4.5 stars. Definitely recommend to those who love Gilded Age American history.
