Baroness is mainly about Lilly (Esme's daughter) and Rosie (Jinx's daughter) and their quest for love/journey in life. While we do see a little of Esme and Jinx, it's not much.
It took me a while to figure out who everyone was in Baroness because it's been a while since I've read Heiress, but after that I thoroughly enjoyed the book - although there were a few times I reread sentences because there was so much detail!
Even though I loved Baroness, at one point I got to where I dreaded reading more because I knew what was going to happen - and I did. not. want. it. to!! However, I also had to keep reading because I needed to see how it would end and I just loved the story!
With another cliff-hanger ending, Baroness, book two in Susan May Warren's Daughters of Fortune series, leaves me anticipating Duchess, book three!
If you like novels like this - that grab your attention and emotions - and don't mind there being some sad moments, than I would definitely recommend it, but first read Heiress (if you haven't already). I think they are best read in order.
*I received this book for free for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. *
I was wrong. About one third of the way into the book, I had a change of heart. I was interested in Rosie and Lilly, and it was neat to see the stories go back and forth between these two young women. They both did things that amazed me, and they had big-time hardships. And it was clear that this was a time period about which I needed to learn a lot more.
Susan May Warren has written a different type of Christian fiction than I have ever read before. I would call her writing style very realistic and full of raw emotion at times. I was pleased to not have the "happily ever after" ending that so many Christian romances seem to suggest in their stories. Bad things did happen. And not all the main characters even came to trust in God.
The position of God was truly unique in the concept of this book. Even in stories where the Christian message is woven into the fabric of the story, God plays a significant, front-and-center role. God essentially takes a "back seat" in this story, but His influence permeates the stories of Lilly and Rosie.
I was quite pleased when I realized how much research the author must have conducted to write about airplanes and newspapers in such great detail. She truly has a grasp of the time period, and her characters are three-dimensional. In fact, I would say they sometimes jump off the page!
My only concern is that Susan May Warren will not write a sequel.Read more ›
Well okay, it might have only been a few months, but FEELS like forever...
Heiress (Daughters of Fortune), the first book in the series, was one of those books that you can't stop thinking about, even long after you finish it. When you read a book that amazing, you wonder how in the world can the sequel compare. Let me tell you, Baroness - if at all possible - is even more amazing!
I have said it before, but I love Susan May Warren! She is one of the few authors that I will buy anything they write, without even having to read the synopsis or reviews. I just know it will be good. Make that AMAZING!
Baroness is the second book in her Daughters of Fortune series (but can be read as a stand alone novel). It continues the story of a privileged New York family, who finds that money cannot buy happiness.
Set in the Roaring Twenties, cousins Lilly and Rosie find adventures in Paris, New York and other places along the way, but can't seem to find happiness, true love or the peace they so long for.
As any dreamer, I love books with adventure, daring feats and the mob thrown in for good measure. The romantic in me loves the romance that Paris offers and the history buff (okay, addict) in me LOVES the time period and historical accuracy. Thankfully, I can experience all of this in one great Susan May Warren book! She tells a story like no one else can and Baroness is one book that I will be re-reading in the future and re-living in my head for weeks!
