An Unlikely Suitor
About the book:
They say that grass is greener on the other side of the fence. But some people are okay with their side of the fence already.
Lucy Scarpelli knows her position in society, at the bottom. She is okay with that. She also knows if she doesn't work, her family doesn't eat. And she is okay with that. But she doesn't know what dreams lie on the other side of the fence.
Rowena Langdon knows her position in society, at the top. She is okay with that. She also knows she doesn't have to work; the servants meet her needs. And she is okay with that. But she doesn't know how good life could actually be on the other side of the fence.
Sofia Scarpelli, Lucy's younger sister, knows her position in society too. And she is not okay with it at all. She also knows that if she doesn't work, her family goes without. But as the youngest, she isn't too worried about others. She wants what is on the other side of the fence.
Join Lucy as she learns more about her position in society, and watch how it changes. Cringe with Rowena as others obviously overlook her disability and pretend she is someone she isn't. Refrain from scolding Sofia when her persistent attitude gets her into trouble time and time again.
I really enjoyed this book. Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres. An Unlikely Suitor blends the defining line between upper and lower classes in the friendship between Lucy and Rowena. These two would have never been friends if they relied on society alone. They meet when Lucy creates a dress for Rowena that helps hide her disability. And a friendship is born.
