America's newest heiress must decide if her potential fortune is rationale enough to give up her freedom and all that God is leading her toward. And when her newly-discovered siblings are threatened with ruin, her quandary deepens. Then as Cora nears Rome, more journalists are tracking the news story of the decade—"Copper Cora," the rags-to-riches girl—and want to know more about her family and the men vying for her attention. Meanwhile, a charming Italian countess decides that if Cora isn't going to claim Will's heart, she might just try . . .
My take: Readers who have been waiting for the next installment of Lisa T. Bergren's Grand Tour series will be happy to know that Glittering Promises serves as a fitting conclusion.
Though at first I had a difficult time remembering the events that led up to the third book (and a short recap prior to the beginning of the book would certainly have been welcome!), I soon became absorbed in the continuing saga of the Kensingtons and Morgans. Bergren included some twists I did not see coming (though another was telegraphed pretty well), and the resolution of the Cora-Will-Pierre love triangle was especially satisfying.
I greatly enjoyed the whole series and highly recommend it to fans of historical fiction.
My rating: 4 stars
