Imagine having your life rewritten when you discover that your father isn’t who you thought. The challenge of being ripped away from everything you’ve ever known and being pulled into another family.
Glittering Promises is the third book in The Grand Tour Series, by Lisa T. Bergren. Cora Kensington’s life has been completely turned upside down after her wealthy father has come forward to claim her. Raised as the daughter of a struggling farmer, Cora now finds herself touring the majestic sites of Europe as the daughter of one of the richest men in America.
As the series wraps up in this book Cora has begun to accept and appreciate her new life in ways that she never thought possible. She has finally begun to form relationships with her new siblings and more importantly, she is finally able to explore her relationship with Will.
Life on the tour isn’t always easy. Danger still haunts their every step as the men behind an earlier kidnapping attempt are still on the loose. The media is hounding their trail in pursuit of family gossip and a fresh headline. And in spite of all the positive steps she has been able to take with her new family, many struggles still remain.
The Grand Tour Series is a wonderful read. The incredible sights and sounds of Europe in the early 1900s are brought to life on each page. The three book series allows Bergren the time and space to fully develop each character and delve into depths of the story; and yet she has managed to do so without slowing down the pace of the story. It’s full of fast paced action, beautiful locations and endearing characters. The ending is more completely fleshed out than most fiction books these days. A very satisfying conclusion to a fabulous journey!
