Mark of Distinction by Jessica Dotta

Mark of Distinction

Price of Privilege Trilogy

Mark of Distinction is the second book of the Price of Privilege trilogy, and we pick up the story of Julia (Elliston) Pierson after she has been rescued from her husband, Macy, by the Lord Pierson, whom she had discovered was her father. Julia struggles with her father's plans to introduce her to society and the illusion that they have created to protect her. She also has to beware of her past....

I found the book easy to read and hard to put down. I wanted to find out what was going to happen, which is great when I find a book that can keep me reading. Her characters are interesting. The plot keeps you wondering, and the characters are intriguing. I did have a major problem on how she does and doesn't present the truth of God's word in this book. It's lacking seriously. As a book marketed to Christian audiences, which would also have appeal to secular audiences, the author has a great opportunity to share the gospel and how it is affecting the main character (and it doesn't have to be blantant), but she fails in this. I hope that the final installment will tie things together and present a character who is convicted by the word of God to change and not just some imagined experience that seemed vague.

Overall, I enjoyed the book, and I am looking forward to reading the final book in the trilogy. I do hope that a proper gospel presentation to the mail character and response are developed in it.
One comment that I have (that really does not lend to the quality of the book) is that the cover image does not portray proper historical fashion. I would have loved to see a cover with that....
This book was provided by the publisher, I was not required to give a positive review, and all opinions are my own.
