Wealthy debutantes look for meaning beyond their privilege
SEATTLE: The 1920s birthed a time of turbulence and change. The end of a “war to end all wars” will do that. Young cousins Lilly, a Montana girl, and Rosie, a New York girl, find these times reflective of their personal lives. In Baroness (Summerside Press) both young women, touched by the cruelty of war, seek assurance of love and belonging: Lilly believes fulfillment lies back in Montana; Rosie, only in bright lights and adoration of the masses.
Expected to marry well and to take the reins of the family empire, they have their lives planned out for them. 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?
Susan May Warren’s books are renowned for reflecting real life: the longings, failings, and redemption we all experience. True to form, Warren demonstrates in Baroness the value of knowing who you are and where you belong. Broken hearts, forgiveness, family loyalty, and unconditional love all serve to help Rosie and Lilly realize how to obtain true security of place and person.
Author Susan May Warren says, “No matter how far we run, how many ‘lives’ we try on, we will never find ourselves outside of God’s love for us. More than that, understanding His relentless love for us — not unlike Oliver’s love for Lilly — changes us.”
This second in the Daughters of Fortune series is a standalone title that follows the next generation of Prices as they deal with new life after the Great War and the consequences of their parents’ choices. Along with Rosie and Lilly, you will learn the truth of Romans 8:38-39, that nothing is able to separate us from the love of God, which is Christ Jesus.
