The Dilemma of Charlotte Farrow by Olivia Newport ~ Review

The Dilemma of Charlotte Farrow (Avenue of Dreams, #2)

Lucie's Review:

Charlotte Farrow continues to keep her secret, but when the woman caring for her child suddenly quits, and when her baby is discovered it is assumed that the baby was abandoned. Charlotte is left to watch silently while the family makes plans for her child, but can she keep herself and her child safe from those who would do them harm?

The sequel to Ms. Newport's The Pursuit of Lucy Banning, continues to follow Charlotte Farrow, and we finally get to find out about her past and what she was running from. I wouldn't say that is totally nescessary that you read the first book in the series before picking this one up, but I would not that it does help fill in the some of the setting and backround.

Charlotte learned about love and overcoming fear, I liked how this book followed Charlotte and how we got to see the Gilded Age through the eyes of a servant instead of someone who was wealthy. I guess the one thing that gives me pause was how even though Charlotte was in a tight situation, it got even worse and she hurt many people by not speaking up. I really felt bad for Elizabeth because she just wanted someone to love and Charlotte hurt her the most by not speaking up right away, so I really hope that Elizabeth get's a happy ending in future books :)

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!
