Masquerade, by Nancy Moser. This book follows the story of two people. Charlotte comes from a wealthy family and is promised by her parents to marry the heir of one of America's wealthiest families. Charlotte isn't sure this is the life she wants anymore, to marry a stranger, the "rules" of society etc...Dora, Charlottes maid, suddenly gets thrust into the life of elite when Charlotte convinces her to change places with her. Both find themselves teetering in the brink of humiliation and a whole lot of trouble if anyone finds out what they have done. They have so much to loose!
I love historical novels, and Nancy Moser does not disappoint in this book! The story is beautifully written, the story line is captivating and is the kind of book that you pick up and can't put down! Its a must have for those who are fans of historic novels! She shows us the less "pretty" side of those who were wealthy as well as what life looked like for the poor! Well done Nancy Moser!
