Book Review: The Invention of Sarah Cummings by Olivia Newport

Sarah Cummings has been a maid in the lavish Banning household for far longer than she planned. Her wardrobe is ready for her big breakthrough into Chicago's high society. She has been altering cast off gowns to make spectacular clothing just waiting for the right time and finally it has arrived.
When she bumps into a young lady new to the area, Sarah takes the chance to introduce her new name and new life as Serena Cuthbert. She can almost taste her new life in high society.
The only glitch is her work at St. Andrews orphanage and it's director Simon Tewell. Sarah will have to choose between the life she has always wanted and a life filled with real love and hope.

The third book in the Avenue of Dreams series, I think this one was my favorite. I loved all the descriptions of the gowns and outfits Sarah creates. There were lots of fun situations where you just had to wonder how she would handle the web of lies she had to weave to be a different person. A very fun book to read!

Available August 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
