GLITTERING PROMISES BY LISA T. BERGREN ~ BLOG TOUR AND GIVEAWAY
Lisa T. Bergren’s popular Grand Tour series concludes as Cora Kensington journeys farther into Italy, wrestles with a terrible ultimatum from her father, and comes to terms with the Father who will never fail her.
America’s newest heiress must decide if her potential fortune is rationale enough to give up her freedom and all that God is leading her toward. And when her newly-discovered siblings are threatened with ruin, her quandary deepens. Then as Cora nears Rome, more journalists are tracking the news story of the decade—“Copper Cora,” the rags-to-riches girl—and want to know more about her family and the men vying for her attention. Meanwhile, a charming Italian countess decides that if Cora isn’t going to claim Will’s heart, she might just try…
"Glittering Promises" is the third installment in the Grand Tour series something I really didn't realize when I picked up this book. Truthfully this book does not stand alone, the author doesn't really give a lot of background into the characters making it difficult to figure out who is who and what is going on. That said I did enjoy the rich historical details of the journey that we take with the characters. I felt like I was on the Grand tour with them. The author does an amazing job of describing places and events really allowing the story to come to life. and also found myself becoming interested in the characters especially Cora and couldn't help but wonder what the future might hold for her. Overall, while this book shouldn't be read as a stand alone work I found myself enjoying the historically vivid journey the author creates with her storytelling. Reading this book has me itching to go back and read the entire series. 4/5
