Book Review: Baroness

Daughters of Fortune Book 2

Coming of age in the turbulent Roaring Twenties, two daughters of fortune can have anything they possibly want-except freedom.  Expected to marry well and take the reins of the family empire, Lilly and Rosie have their entire lives planned out for them.  But Lily longs to flee the confines of New York City for the untamed wilds of Montana.  Her cousin Rosie dreams of the bright lights of the newly emerging silver screen.  Following their dreams-to avant-garde France, to dazzling Broadway, to the skies of the fearless wing walkers-will demand all their courage.

When forced to decide, will Lilly and Rosie truly be able to abandon lives of ease and luxury for the love and adventure that beckons?  At what cost will each daughter of fortune find her true love and a happy ending?

This is an excellent book.  As I read about Rosie and Lilly I thought they seemed rather spoiled and ungrateful.  I do suppose though that their parents were at fault.  The girls seemed to endure a love/hate relationship with each other as well as their parents.

Sometimes it takes a jolt to make people realize how fortunate they are, sometimes it's hard to cry out for help, and at times it's even more difficult to admit love.  Rosie and Lily each have incredible journeys and they try to figure out their futures, and just when things seem at their worst they find each other again.  It's what happens after the reconciliation that will tear at your heart.  This book will make you laugh, cry, and even feel a bit of anger and Lilly and Rosie find their way.
