Glamorous Illusions by Lisa Bergren.
This is the first book in a series -- thank goodness! I was reading the book on an eReader, so I didn't realize I was close to the end when it finished. I felt one of those pangs of sadness when a book or a movie you love is about to end.
Lisa writes beautifully, and the story was intriguing. I fell in love with the characters and their journeys. From the dusty farms of Montana to the glorious sights of England and Paris, Lisa draws you in with her well-written prose.
Here's the description:
It's the summer of 1913 and Cora Kensington's life on the family farm has taken a dark turn. The crops are failing and worse, so is her father's health. Then a stranger comes to call and in one fateful afternoon, Cora discovers that her birth father is a copper king-a man who invites her to tour Europe with her new family. As she travels across America, then on to England and France, Cora faces the hardships as well as the privileges of assuming the family name. And though now she knows more of her true identity, she soon discovers the journey is only beginning.
So, Lisa -- when does book # 2 release?
