Masquerade is Nancy Moser's latest title and it reaffirms exactly why I love this author. She never lets me down! With this book she is continuing down the historical fiction track and let me just say that she does this well. REALLY well. This book whisked me back in time to 1886 and made me a part of the story. When Charlotte and Dora switched places I felt like I was right there with them. I also loved watching the main character develop from the self-centered spoiled little rich girl to one who was willing to serve others. This is one not to be missed. I didn't want the story to end and yet I devoured it within two days.
Thanks, Nancy, for this CLEAN READ.
About the book from the back cover:
They risk it all for adventure and romance, but find that love only flourishes in truth....
1886. Charlotte Gleason embarks from England with conflicting emotions. She is headed for New York to marry one of America's wealthiest heirs--a man she has never even met. When her doubts gain the upper hand, she swaps identities with her maid, Dora. She wants a chance at "real life," even if it means giving up financial security. For Charlotte, it's a risk she's willing to take. But what begins as the whim of a spoiled rich girl becomes a test of survival beyond her blackest nightmare.
For Dora, it's the chance of a lifetime. She is thrust into a fairy tale amid ball gowns and lavish mansions, yet is tormented by the possibility of discovery--and humiliation. And what of the man who believes she is indeed his intended? Is this what her heart truly longs for?
