The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck

This novel begins in 1887 in London, England.  Charlotte Beck is a young American woman visiting her grandfather and being prepared for her first social events in both New York and London. 

You immediately sense that Charlotte does not enjoy all that is required to look like and act like a “lady”.  What she really desires is to go to school and then work for and with her father back in America.

This book is full of fun tales as you follow Charlotte through the next years of her life.  She ends up in a place she never imagined!

A Vision of Lucy

The story of the people of Rocky Creek continues in this third book of Margaret Brownley's newest series.  A Vision of Lucy picks up where A Suitor For Jenny concluded.  It was fun to revisit some of the characters from the first two stories in this series.

This third book has a much faster pace than the first as the reader is trying to find the answer to the question "who is David Wolf?".  Many additional questions surface as you move through these pages.  All are answered by the time you reach the final page.

I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my unbiased review
