Another good offering from a still relatively little known author.

Wolfe continues her series detailing the lives and loves of the rich Davenport family. Josie and Arthur (the main characters in book 1), are now married and a child is on the way. They have set up First Step, a shelter for the less fortunate. Sarah and Catherine, Arthur's sisters, are next in line to be wed and their mother is keen to ensure they are suitably matched. Catherine decides to help at First Step to do her charitable b

Crown Of Beauty by Cecily Wolfe is a fabulous Christian historical romance. It is the second book in the Cliff Walk Courtship series but can be read as a stand-alone. I enjoyed continuing the story from book one. This novel focuses on one of the sisters.
Crown Of Beauty is an absorbing read for anyone interested in a read that combines up and downstairs relationships. I found it very reminiscent of Downton Abbey with the relationship there of Lady Mary and her maid Anna. There were confidences an

Having read the first book in this series I had some expectations going into reading the sequel. For anyone who enjoyed the first book, I would definitely read this one. It’s got a similar feel and style with fresh insights into some familiar characters along with the new ones.

Crown of Beauty is pretty enjoyable and has improved in some ways on the first book in the series. The switches in perspective are more cleanly demarcated this time round and you get to see deeper insights into the most

Through Christians Books Only Review Group I received this book from the author for my honest review.

This book is the 2nd book in the Cliff Walk Courtships series. It continues with Arthur and Josie with the plus added that they are expecting a child. And more added in of their adventure of helping people with their First Steps shelter. But the romance though is between Catherine and Will. For me, it starts out a little slow because it’s a while before Catherine and Will even meet. But when the

Last year I read Throne of Grace. That was book one of the Cliff Courtship series. I enjoyed it, but it was my first ever Christian novel, and it reminded me of my school days in England.

This book, Crown of Beauty is in my eyes much better than the first book. It is easy to read, and you can't help but adore the female friendships. A great continuation where you feel that you grow with the author. All readers and writers will immediately gel with the book-loving Catherine!
The romance part of t

The author will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens in this book next. Josie and Arthur’s relationship is truly remarkable. Watching the way Catherine and Will both changed after working with Arthur is totally amazing. The characters in this book are all very special people. You will feel God working throughout this whole book. I had the honor to review this book for the author for a honest review. I would give this book a higher rating than a five star review if I coul ...more

Thought provoking

I like how it addresses the issue of prayer, and the outcome or otherwise of praying. Enjoy how the characters grow and become more conscious of and interested in others around them. Nice how the parents are seen to have better and deeper motives than first thought. A good series. Can't wait for the next book.

It becomes more engaging with each book!

Crown of Beauty by Cecily Wolfe is Book 2 in the Cliff Walk Courtships series. In the Crown of Grace we became acquainted with the complicated love story of Arthur and Josie. Two lovers from two different social economical classes that would not form a friendship under normal circumstances but the grace of God draws them together against the wishes of Arthur Davenport’s family.

In The Crown of Beauty we continue the journey with the married couple who are

Two people from the same class. But are they really deserving of each other?

As a compromise, her father orders her to work at Arthur's shelter, First Steps. Under the influence of Arthur, Josie and a baker by the name of Grace, Catherine begins to blossom into a young woman.

Then she meets Will - a young man who comes into First Ste
