Kimberly Brock has tackled an engrossing and suspenseful subject - the lost colony of Roanoke . . . The Lost Book of Eleanor Dare is worth the time, though, especially for people interested in the earliest days of colonists in America and the rich tradition of women passing down their stories over generations.--Manhattan Book Review
Compelling and immersive . . . Brock's lush narrative is rich in American and Virginia history with deep roots in the mysterious disappearance of the lost colony on Roanoke Island.--Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of The Good Left Undone
In this complex, compelling, and beautifully crafted novel, Kimberly Brock explores not only the enigma of the Lost Colony of Roanoke, but also the boundless mysteries of love, family, and the human heart. This is a story filled with many charms, both literal and figurative, and I guarantee it will captivate readers from the first page to the last.--William Kent Krueger, New York Times bestselling author
Amid the atmospheric backdrop of the Lowcountry, Brock stirs up a beguiling blend of family legacy, historical mystery, and generational connections, examining the unbreakable ties of mothers and daughters, the power of stories told and stories hidden, and the unquenchable need to understand those who came before us. A beautiful tale to curl up with and contemplate the intertwining of lives past and present.--Lisa Wingate, #1 New York Times bestselling author
'The Lost Book of Eleanor Dare is an intriguing, dreamy story about the impact of one unhealed woman who has yet to reconcile her past in such a way that lends itself to transparency with her young daughter . . . Author Kimberly Brock delicately balances mystery, family lore, and honoring one's forebears in sonorous language throughout a sweeping story with three points of view, two timeframes, and remarkably steady pacing. Weaving myth and legend with historical fact pertaining to an age-old American mystery, The Lost Book of Eleanor Dare is a spellbinding, beautiful story written by a graceful hand with just the right amount of mysticism.'--New York Journal of Books
You do not need a deep grounding in colonial misadventure to appreciate Kimberly Brock's graceful work of speculative, historical fiction . . . Gentle in tone, it is matrilineal feminism at its most dreamy . . . The storytelling is rich, lyrical, and garlanded with Spanish moss, with jewel-like passages that beg to be re-read.--Arts Atlanta
In this novel, author Kimberly Brock weaves a multigenerational story based on the supposed descendants of the real-life Eleanor Dare . . . The author paces the plot well with vivid details that made me feel that I, too, was wandering the estate at Evertell. And I appreciated that the story was well researched as I read the pages from Eleanor Dare's viewpoint as she flees from Roanoke Island to points unknown. The characters are unique and carry their own human flaws that make them come alive and feel believable. I rooted for each of them as they strove to find their place in a complicated family history . . . Highly recommended.--Historical Novel Society
