The Dilemma of Charlotte Farrow by Olivia Newport

The Dilemma of Charlotte Farrow by Olivia Newport


About this book

The whole world is coming to Chicago. Charlotte’s whole world is coming down around her.

While the rest of Chicago focuses on the enormous spectacle of the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, Charlotte Farrow’s attentions are entirely on one small boy-her boy-whom she has kept a secret from her wealthy employers for nearly a year.

When the woman who has been caring for her son abruptly returns him to the opulent Banning home, Charlotte must decide whether to come clean and face dismissal or keep her secret while the Bannings decide the child’s fate. Can she face the truth of her past and open her heart to a future of her own? Or will life’s struggles determine her path?

This compelling story of courage, strength, and tender romance captures the tension between the glittering wealthy class and the hardworking servants who made their lives comfortable.


My Thoughts on this book


I read Olivia Newport’s book “The Pursuit of Lucy Banning” and loved it, especially the relationship between Lucy and their maid, Charlotte Farrow. So, I was really excited to read Charlotte’s story! And I was definitely not disappointed. I grew to love Charlotte even more in this book. The characters were realistic and believable, and I enjoyed reading more about the house of servants taking care of the Banning household, and everything involved.


I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Charlotte and her baby. This story truly shows what a parent will do for the safety of their child. Olivia Newport is a gifted storyteller and it clearly shows in both “The Pursuit of Lucy Banning” and ‘The Dilemma of Charlotte Farrow.’ I highly recommend both of these book for your reading enjoyment, You will be delighted! And I can’t wait for book three in this series.


I received this book from the publisher Revell to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55
