Blog Tour: The Baroness (Review)

Susan May Warren has once again created a novel that captures a snapshot of life, using history as the setting.

Cracking open the "roaring twenties," Warren introduces us to Lily and Rose, the daughters of the sisters found in book one - The Heiress.

While this book didn't capture my interest as intensely as the first (it was really good), The Baroness is a solid story.

It weaves together the girls dreams vs. society and family expectations.

It also explores different aspects of the twenties - I especially liked the track Lily took, being a "wing walker."

If this book does one thing, it shows how actions and decisions have consequences.

On a scale of one to five, with five being the highest, I give it a solid four. It's definitely worth a read - especially if you are looking on a fun book (or series) to take on vacation.

A last thought - Warren truly shows a snapshot of America during the twenties. I can't wait to see the end of the series - Rose's story in book three. If it's anything like the first two, it will make me want to dive into the history books.

About The Book
(From the Publisher)
Baroness – Book Two in the Daughters of Fortune series
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?
