This Book Room: Baroness

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?

Additional notes: This is the second book in the Daughters of Fortune series. You can read my review of the first book here. A third book will be released in the future for this series.

My thoughts: Lily's and Rosie's stories were just as captivating as Emse's and Jinx's. There are so many twists and turns to these stories - it's really like being on a roller coaster! Rosie is a bit annoying as a character, but it's clearly on purpose. She reminds me a lot of Jinx - the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, eh?

Lily is a firecracker and so brave. I loved hearing about her adventures in the sky, and her love story was awesome. There's the exact right mix of romance in this series. It's not overwhelming, and it takes a back seat to the adventurous aspects of the story.

I can't wait to read the third book and see where Susan's taking her readers next. She has knocked this series out of the park. If you enjoy saga-type stories (like North and South, Marta's Legacy, etc.), you will beyond enjoy this series.

Thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
