Sort of Paranormal Romance Review: Destiny's Dowry by Rosemary Gard

Title: Destiny's Dowry
Author: Rosemary Gard
Source: First Reads
Genre: Historical Romance
Length: Novel
Release Date: November 1, 2008
Reviewed by: Jasmyn

In the lovely Croatian countryside of the late 1800s, a baby near death is taken away.  Miraculously the baby survives.  Sixteen years later Katya's dangerous journey takes her where she really belongs.

I want to start out by saying - don't let this cover scare you away.  I almost didn't pick it up because the cover just didn't look very appealing - but then I would have never found out how amazing the story inside was.  Katya's tale is a strange one, and full of adventure.  Raised as someone other than herself, it is in her destiny to return to where she really belongs.  It's just that no one ever knows this (except for the gypsy queen, but she's the special dash of paranormal in the whole thing).  More than just a romance, this is a story of discovery for everyone in Katya's life.  They have all lived in lies, some big some small, and need to learn to accept the truth and live the lives they were meant to live.
