Charlotte Gleason is a young English socialite on the verge of marrying an American man that she does not know ~ all to help her family’s financial situation. Her soon-to-be fiance provides passage for her and her lady’s maid Dora, to travel to America so they can meet. While on the ship, Charlotte and Dora hatch a plan to provide Charlotte a way out of the marriage ~ the girls trade places and Dora assumes Charlotte’s identity when they get to New York.
Before long, their plan starts to fall apart. Will they be able to keep up the masquerade and not hurt anyone in the process?
The historical detail of Masquerade by Nancy Mosher is wonderful and really pulls the reader into that period of history. Learning about the workhouses, crowded tenements and what life was like for many of the immigrants new to America was almost heartbreaking at times.
While a few parts of the book seemed to move rather quickly, the book overall was a fun read. Both of the girls develop much as characters and learn what it means to trust God and follow His guidance in their lives.
