Death Be Not Proud-The Secrets of the Journal 2 by C. F. Dunn

This is an interesting story about Emma D'Eresby, a professor and historian who flees America back to England after surviving two attacks and also finding out something is very different about her boyfriend.  She stays with her parents as she tries to recover physically and emotionally and decides to research who her boyfriend really is.  What she discovers will change her future and cause her to question what she really wants.

I had a hard time getting into this story because it's definitely a continuation of book one, which I haven't read, and also because the main character's depressed a fair ways into the book.  I thought her research was fascinating and it reminded me of shows like "Who Do You Think You Are," where they research genealogy.  I wish there had been more of that in the story.  I also liked the truth that she discovered about who or what her boyfriend is; it gave a unique twist to the story.  I won't give away the ending, but I was pretty disappointed with a decision that's made and I have to disagree morally with it.  There was also some swearing, which I especially don't like to see in Christian books.  There is going to be a third book and I wonder if the situation will be redeemed somehow, but I don't think I'll be reading it.

I received this book free from Kregel Publications in exchange for an honest review.
