Glittering Promises by Lisa Tawn Bergren
Posted by Krystal Larson at 1:59 AM Sunday, November 3, 2013
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 track 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...
I have loved this series from the beginning and this latest book is no different. Cora discovered that she is a heiress...something that one might think is every little girl's dream. She has to make financial decisions by thinking of siblings she didn't know existed. I can imagine being in Cora's place, but I honestly don't think I would want the sudden, difficult decision-making. On top of the money, Cora is having difficulty with her relationship with Will. They aren't following God's plan and are letting jealousies get in the way. As a love interest, I still loved Will's character. He comes off as such a gentleman.
Cora's character has developed and changed so much over the course of these novels. She has truly grown up into a lovely young woman. I felt like I really knew her. I loved how the author spent so much time developing the setting. The reader will feel as if he/she is actually in Europe and experiencing what Cora was experiencing. This book is highly recommended for adult readers and anyone who is already a fan of the series.
