ABOUT THE BOOK



They risk it all for adventure and romance, but find that love only flourishes in truth...


1886, New York City: Charlotte Gleason, a rich heiress from England, escapes a family crisis by traveling to America in order to marry the even wealthier Conrad Tremaine.



She soon decides that an arranged marriage is not for her and persuades her maid, Dora, to take her place. 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. What begins as the whim of a spoiled rich girl wanting adventure becomes a test of survival amid poverty beyond Charlotte's blackest nightmares.



As for Dora, it's the chance of a lifetime. She lives a fairy tale complete with gowns, jewels, and lavish mansions--yet is tormented by guilt from the possibility of discovery and the presence of another love that will not die. Is this what her heart truly longs for?



Will their masquerade be discovered? Will one of them have second thoughts? There is no guarantee the switch will work. It's a risk. It's the chance of a lifetime.

My Review:
Two women, a Spoiled rich girl and her maid decide they are going to switch their identities! Will they be able to convince everyone? Is it all they thought it would be? Will they be able to pull off living the complete opposite of all they know?

This is an amazing book! One that I believe you will want to read! To see Gods hand in the lives of these women is very inspirational! The Romance, The Fashion, The Struggles....THIS BOOK ~ It's a Must Read for SURE!
