Duchess: A Review

The final book in the Daughters of Fortune series follows Rosie as she leaves everything behind to follow her dream of being a movie star. Will the price of fame be more than she's willing to pay?

While I liked the way the first two books alternated between story lines, I liked that this book focused solely on Rosie, now called Roxie, since Lily was settled and happy at the end of book two. Roxie is a character that is so headstrong that she messes things up for herself time after time. Even when I grew frustrated with her actions, I still loved her character, who had lost so much and kept going with a fierce determination.

As with the other books in the series, the author does a great job capturing the culture and time of the book. From movies to rescuing Jews from the Nazis, the time period enhances the story so much by adding realistic circumstances.

Finally, I didn't want this book to end. After following this family for two generations, I wanted to read about the next generation, particularly Coco, who has a story to tell for sure.

Fans of historical Christian fiction will love this series. It's true to the time periods and full of twists and turns.

I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own.

your review is reminding me of Murray Pura's family saga, The Danforths of Lancashire - Ashton Park out and Beneath the Dover Sky releasing Aug 1st. I love getting caught up in these historical issues and characters revealed by their choices. Thanks for posting!
