I don't even know how to review this book. Whatever I say is not going to do it justice. Duchess is the final book in the Daughters of Fortune trilogy, which spanned three generations. It truly felt like the culmination of an epic at the end.

Susan May Warren writes amazing characters. They just become like good friends. And her stories are always surprising, informative, and inspiring. This is Rosie's story. She starts out running away from a tormented past and trying to make it big in old Hollywood, but of course there are some bumps and detours along the way, and eventually she has to decide if making it big is what she really wants and if accolades and applause are enough.

I loved basically everything about this book. All the authentic characters, the intertwining story lines, and setting! From the glitz and glamour of old Hollywood, to cafes in Paris, and waltzes in Vienna. It was amazing and fun, and I learned a lot actually. I loved the behind the scenes look at Hollywood and movie production. And I got a kick out of reading about the casting and production of Gone with the Wind (my absolute favorite book and movie.) I loved that the plot had a whole deeper layer to it that, for most of the book you're totally unaware of, as is Rosie. The twist reminded me of old war movies like Casablanca, or the production that Rosie was supposed to be staring in in the book.

I enjoyed reading about Rosie. She has flaws, she's already had a rough life, as we read about in Baroness, and she has some wounds and battle scars to show for it. She doesn't always make the best decisions and she knows that. But she's spunky and stubborn and strong. Even courageous when it counts. I liked that her decisions, even her bad ones, rang true.

A story rich in redemption and love, Duchess is the third and final installment in The Daughters of Fortune Series. The story evolves around Rosie Worth aka Roxy Price. Rosie, a strong and courageous woman with a kind heart, is still making poor decisions which are followed by heartache and turmoil.

The story begins in 1929 and the actress, Roxy, is in a clandestine marriage to Dashielle Parks. The marriage is more of a partnership or business arrangement with little or no romance. Rosie/Roxy brings all of her problems on herself. She's created her own nightmares by taking hold of her destiny instead of allowing God to deliver His chosen destiny to her. She seems to have a great capacity for making mistakes and creating unhappiness in her life. Rosie had been a daughter of an heiress who had been bequeathed a fortune. But she'd turned it down, wanting to find her own life - her own destiny.

Roxy, as an actress, had her share of applause, but she always craved more. When the applause died down, she felt emptiness. She had two chances at love, most people only get one chance in a lifetime. Her first love, Guthrie, who died in Baroness, and now Rolfe, the Duke of Beaumont, her second love. As the story unfolds, it becomes apparent that Rolfe, living in Europe, is transporting refugees, Jews, and other political prisoners out of the country - ahead of the Nazis. This was an interesting back-drop to the story. The story becomes very complex, but ends with a happy and satisfying conclusion.

Rosie finally finds forgiveness and redemption for her stubbornness and for all the ways she's destroyed her destiny. She is filled with peace for the first time in her life and a love that she could surrender her heart to.

I had a feeling going into Duchess that it would be a good read - I just didn't know how good. I loved this book so much and it is definitely a favorite of mine now. Wow, Susan May Warren definitely knows how to write a gripping story with a great message. Duchess had me feeling so many emotions and there were a few times I started crying because the story was so touching.

I loved the characters! Rolfe was such a great guy - I absolutely loved his character and would say he was my favorite from Duchess, though Rosie is a close second. I'm sad Duchess is the final book in the Daughters of Fortune series - I just don't want to say goodbye to them yet - but the ending was wonderful and wrapped things up very well.

The whole movie making aspect in Duchess was really interesting and I loved getting a glimpse into that world. I also really liked another part of the story, but I won't tell you what it is as I don't want to spoil it for future readers.

Duchess was a fantastic book and I completely loved reading it! If you enjoy books with drama, romance, intrigue, and a great message, I definitely recommend Duchess - just be sure to read Heiress and Baroness first or I think you'll be a little confused about some things (this is definitely a series best read in order).

This was a great book - very well written! I was already a fan of Susan May Warren's, but now I will be searching for every book she's written. I was gripped throughout this series/trilogy by the sadness this family dealt with, but through it all they turned to God and found His peace! I can't recommend the series enough. As others have mentioned, it's best to read them in order or you will be lost!
