Book Review: Baroness by Susan May Warren

About the Book: Lily and Rose, daughters of an empire coming of age in the roaring twenties, can have anything they want ... except freedom.

Expected to marry well and to take the reins of the empire, they have their lives planned out for them. But, Lily, Esme's daughter longs to return home to Montana, to adventure outside the confines of New York City. And Jinx's daughter Rosie dreams of the bright lights of the newly emerging silver screen. But following their dreams - from avant garde France, to Broadway, to the skies in the world of barnstormers and wing-walkers will take all their courage.

And if they find love, will they choose freedom or happily ever after?

My Thoughts:  After reviewing Heiress last fall, I was thrilled to have the chance to review this second book in the Daughters of Fortune Series by one of my favourite authors.

This was another dramatic work of historical fiction - a whirlwind story of two very different girls and their life journeys.  I like that the book took place over a large time span to really give you an idea of their unfolding stories and what brought them to each turning point in their lives, how their past affected their choices and how their present choices affected their future in ways they couldn't imagine.  A great reminder to us that even seemingly insignificant choices can have huge consequences.

As always, Warren is a fantastic storyteller and you are truly swept into the drama of all the characters in the story as you're transported back in time to the roaring twenties. 

Definitely looking forward to the third book in this series and sure hope I have a chance to review that one as well!  

Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for organizing this tour and providing me with my complimentary review copy.
