About the Book
Count Dimitri Sokolov has been charged with overseeing construction of the legendary Trans-Siberian Railway, but during this work, he witnesses an appalling crime, the truth of which threatens the Russian monarchy. In an effort to silence him, the czar has stripped Dimitri of his title, his lands, and his freedom . . . but Dimitri has one asset the czar knows nothing about: his deep and abiding friendship with Natalia Blackstone.
Natalia is the lead analyst for her father’s New York banking empire and manages their investment in the Trans-Siberian Railway. Her bond with Dimitri has flourished despite the miles between them, but when Dimitri goes unexpectedly missing, she sets the wheels in motion to find him. Once they join forces, they embark on a dangerous quest in which one wrong move could destroy them both.
From the steppes of Russia to the corridors of power in Washington, Dimitri and Natalia will fight against all odds to save the railroad while exposing the truth. Can their newfound love survive the ordeal?

In My Opinion
Where do I even begin with Elizabeth Camden’s Written on the Wind? There is so much to say about everything.
Let’s start with Dimitri. He’s not your typical hero. Sure he’s steadfast, strong, and intelligent. He champions doing the right thing. But he’s also a bit of a hypochondriac and a man who likes to be well-groomed (including his oils and manicures). Camden writes this character so well. I was at times amused by him but mostly I loved everything about him.
And Natalia doesn’t fade into the background of Dmitri’s big personality. No, she stands up to him or stands beside him. She’s an intelligent woman with a drive to help her family succeed but she’s not selfish. Readers see this through her relationships with Patrick and Liam.
Camden also includes what readers love about her books—a deep dive into some parts of history. This time she takes us through the changing landscapes of Russia and from San Francisco to New York as readers learn more about the Trans-Siberian railroad, women in business at the turn of the century, and even the recording of music to records.
There are so many things I loved about this book, but they can be summed up with this: This book breaks conventions and explores paths no one else in Christian fiction has done to-date, and that makes Written on the Wind stand out among the pack.
