Book Review: The Pursuit of Lucy Banning by Olivia Newport

Lucy Banning is set up for life - a comfortable home, loving family, and wealthy finance who has been waiting since childhood for Lucy's hand. But it's not enough for big hearted Lucy. Between her work with the orphans, the women's movement, and her secret university classes, she is not content with a dull life of leisure. But all the sneaking around can't last forever, and when she meets Will, she may have finally met someone who she doesn't have to hide from.
I really enjoyed this story. It reminded me a bit of Downton Abbey (on PBS), with it showing both the lives of the wealthy and the people who serve them. I also loved seeing a little bit into the history of the World Fair. It had some nice twists and kept me involved in the storyline right up to the end!

Thank you so much to Revell Publishing for a free copy of this book to review. 

Available May 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
