Masquerade, by Nancy Moser
It is 1886 and Charlotte Gleason is about to get herself into a bit of trouble! As you begin to read this story you learn quickly that Charlotte is one girl that is full of spunk with a desire for 'real life'.
About to be sent to America to meet the man she is expected to marry, Charlotte cannot imagine leaving her long-time friend and maid behind, as events unfold, it is the two of them that leave on the ship for America and Charlotte becomes a bit dismayed when she see's how easily her friend Dora slips into the roll of a society lady.
Would you want to marry a man you have never met? Even if he is very wealthy? Charlotte sure doesn't, so she switches rolls with Dora and the fun begins, or does it? Charlotte is thrown into a world she doesn't know how to live in, struggling to survive she begins to wonder if she made a mistake. In the meantime, Dora is living a life of luxury, but at the cost of missing out on true love.
After many twists and turns the girls meet again, but I'm not going to tell you what happens! This was a fun book...I loved the spunk and personality of the characters and I recommend this book.
