A Grand Tour! What young lady would not leap at the opportunity to travel to the continent in the company of other young people and a handsome guide? Cora Diehl, only child of Minnesota farmers, has just been slammed in the gut with the reality that she is in fact Cora Kensington, the daughter of Wallace Kensington, Montana copper baron, and has three half-siblings. Glamorous Illusions introduces the reader to the Kensington and Morgan families as they begin their Grand Tour. Travel to pre-WW1 England and France with these spoiled, rich American young adults as they discover reality and interpersonal relationships in the face of rejection, adventure, foreign cultures, and danger.
Lisa Bergren has long been a favorite author of mine, and I was delighted to begin a new series from her- especially such a well-written historical fiction series. I am eagerly awaiting the next part of the series as the Grand Tour continues to Italy!
I received a free copy of this book for preview and was not required to write a positive review.
