This book is part of an historical series, set in the late 19th Century Chicago. Here is the book summary:
Olivia's position as assistant chef at Pullman's elegant Hotel Florence is dependent upon her keeping her secrets. And sometimes lies have a way of leading to other lies. Should Olivia admit her real past and accept the consequences or keep quiet in order to preserve her comfortable new circumstances?
Deception seems to be part of everyday life in the company town of Pullman, Illinois, where the grand Pullman Palace Car is manufactured. Samuel Howard, Olivia's friend and the town manager, seems to think everything is fine, but Olivia observes something quite different. Could it be that Olivia is not the only one harboring secrets?
Loved this book! but you MUST buy the second one at the same time!
Part 1 of a 3 part series... I actually read part 2 first then couldn't wait to get my hands on this one to know how certain things happened & I am glad I did. I really did enjoy this book. It only took me 4 days to finish it (and I have a full-time job & 3 kids)because I just couldn't put it down... Needless to say, I was tired every morning until I finished.LOL!
I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the rest of the series.
Excellent story, great historical background. Loved it can't wait to read the next book in the series.
