Lucy Scarpelli and her family lives in NY during America’s Gilded Age. Their family lived in a poverty section of NY and struggled to survive. That is until one day Lucy run into Mr. Standish, a wealthy businessman that owns a dress shop. Mr. Standish not only hires Lucy and her sister Sofia to help sew dresses for the wealthy he hires their mom to make hats to match the dresses. He also offers to rent the mom and 2 siblings an apartment over the dress shop. This is the beginning of a new life for the Scarpelli family. Lucy becomes friends with Rowena, a crippled young lady and the daughter of a wealthy couple. Join Lucy and the Scarpelli family on an unbelievable journey to a life they never thought possible.

First of all, the beauty of the cover of this book captures your interest, making you want to see the story inside. The characters the author created were unique to the story, and blended so well it makes you feel as though you are living the story with them. The independence and determination of Lucy makes you want to strive to be like her. The Christian content was strong, which I enjoyed because it teaches us that we need to trust God with every detail of our lives and believe that he knows best.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes historical and romance Christian fiction. This is a wonderful summer read, a nice get-away from daily struggles for a while.

I was provided a copy of this book by Bethany House publishers. I was not required or expected to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.
