Baroness book review


This is the third book I've read by Susan May Warren, so I knew there would be compelling characters, interesting historical detail and heart-tugging romance. Baroness is the second of Ms. Warren's Daughters of Fortune series. It takes place in the Roaring Twenties and features the daughters of sisters, Esme and Jinx Price from her previous novel, Heiress.

Cousins Rosie and Lilly rebel against the secure futures that have been planned out for them by their powerful high society families. The girls couldn't be more different in their personalities as they long for the freedom to choose their own future. Lilly heads for the family ranch in Montana and gets side-tracked by and air show. Rosie seeks her fame and fortune in the bright lights of the stage but falls in love with a baseball player. The story line takes us to Paris, to the world of barnstormers and wing-walkers and to Broadway before bringing the two girls back together again.

Both young women long for love but have much to learn about true love and where it can be found. Both experience the battle of choosing between the freedom of they crave, the security and luxury of a life approved of by their mothers or the love of men far from their social circle. Both experience young love, broken hearts and have to learn forgiveness on the way to becoming women in their own right.

The action is fast paced and the story draws the reader in quickly. The characters are real, likeable, and well defined. I enjoyed Baroness, just as I did Heiress and I'm looking forward to finding out where life takes them in the next book.

The only negative I found was that there could have been more of a Christian element. There was some but I felt that the stage was set for more of a finished message. The girls could have experienced God's love and forgiveness in a deeper way and learned to lean on Him in their struggles.

Baroness was given to me free of charge by Litfuse Publicity Group for an honest review. You can find it on Amazon.com.
