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!
