Book Overview

The first in the newly repackaged Kensington Chronicles series, The Hawk and the Jewel sweeps readers from the tapestried halls of Victorian England to the alabaster courts of Arabia. Everyone thought little Sunny had perished with Lady Gallagher in storm-tossed seas off the Arabian coast, but the beautiful toddler had been found, taken to the palace of Darhabar, and raised as the ruler's own child. Now the emir, Ahmad Khan, is sending her home, and...

After wearing out the copy at my local library, I decided it was time to buy my own copy of The Hawk and the Jewel. It was well worth it as I have read it many times since. I have been a reader my entire life, but Lori Wick is by far the most captivating author I have ever read. Perhaps it is because I should have been born in the eighteenth century, but Wick's series "Kensington Chronicles," from which this book comes, is one to read over and over.Set in the English days of dukes and duchesses, peasants and servants, this novel relates the story of a young girl named Sunny and her coming to grips with herself, the Lord, and love. You will be captured into the moving story as Sunny learns that her family is not what she thought it was and is thrust into a new life completely different from anything she has ever known. You will feel Brandon's compassion as he watches Sunny try to cope with the hurt and betrayal she feels. You will rejoice with her family when she comes to know the Lord, and cry with her when she feels the knife of rejection. You will laugh at her spirited ideas, and feel the magic surrounding her as she grows older. You will experience Brandon's pain as his life seems to come crashing around him, and want to hold Holly as she deals with an unrequited love. If you are a lover of fairy tales, or simply want to get lost in a good story, allow Lori Wick to take you back a few hundred years and live in England for awhile. You will fall in love with it.


This book is absolutely stunning. The emotions felt as Sunny is taken from the only home she remembers are so real, so awesome. And as the book unravels, and the reader learns why things happened as they did, it is awesome. Not to mention the awesome romance between "The Hawk and the Jewel."

Couldn't put it down!

The Hawk and the Jewel was the first Lori Wick book I have read, and I was so impressed! The suspense and the captivating story line and setting were enough to make me forget the world outside and read for many hours straight. The frustration of wondering whether Sunny and Brandon will really end up together was worth it all by the end of this wonderful book. And the way Wick intertwines the Bible and Christianity with the stories was very refreshing and welcome.

Enthralling, with great insight on the 18th century.

This was not the first Lori Wick book I've read but I Enjoyed it.I've read this book five times and each time I am captivated by sunny and brandon. I love Lori Wick's way of writing. I would like to encourage you to read her other books like; Wings of the morning,Who brings forth the wind, the kinight and the dove, Where the wild rose blooms, whispers of the moonlight, to know her by name, promise me tommorrow, sophies heart, beyond the picket fence, pretenseand also a place called home series as well as the Caliofornians, she is a great writer, I love her.She is inspiring

This book is a satisfying treat that makes you want more.

I had never read a Christian fiction book before and wasn't interested in starting, especially not a "romance" novel. Several friends recommended this author but I still declined. But since I was a librarian this book kept appearing over and over we had to get another copy because it was checked out so frequently. Finally I gave in and took it home. I couldn't put it down. I enjoyed the character development, could identify with their feelings, and loved the Christian perspective intelligently portrayed. Because I was so entertained, and encouraged by this book I have read all of her books and several other Christian fictian novels. I strongly encourage everyone to read this book or any book by Lori Wick. Young and old will anticipate each turn of the page. One friend read these books aloud to her older elementary school age children. But beware reading these books once may not be enoug
