Death Be Not Proud by C. F. Dunn

Death Be Not Proud 
Death Be Not Proud by C. F. Dunn

Following the vicious attack by a psychotic colleague, and reeling from the suspicion that Matthew Lynes is not all that he seems, Professor Emma D'Eresby flees her college teaching position in Maine to her hometown in England-- taking the mysterious seventeenth-century journal she stole from the college's archives with her.

Broken physically and emotionally, Emma drifts until, fearing for their daughter's sanity, her parents invite a family friend to assess her. In the course of their conversation, Emma discovers that he spoke to Matthew over thirty years before.

This finally spurs her into action and soon, when she finds what certainly must be a reference to Matthew in the journal, she begins to understand Matthew's profound secret.

But when Matthew arrives to confess his love for her, she must decide if she can trust him--and he must decide if he can share his extraordinary secret with her. Drawn by a deep connection that both feel but don't quite understand they find they must set aside their doubts and trust each other.

Readers will be thrilled by the second installment in The Secret of the Journal from British author C. F. Dunn. Mixing suspense, romance, and the supernatural, Death Be Not Proud explores the profound moral implications of a life seemingly invulnerable to time.

My Take: This is the second book in this series and although you can read this book without reading the first one I would suggest reading the first book so you would not feel like you need to catch up.  I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it if you like history books and mysteries as there is a mystery about Matthew.  Even though this is marketed as a Christian romance, I really didn't see much Christian about it.  And the whole Matthew mystery makes it hard to believe.  I would just suggest that this is a fantasy book and romance.  

I received a review copy of this book from Kregel in exchange for my honest review.
