A Change of Fortune | Book Review

I don't normally read too many fiction books but, I took the time to read A Change of Fortune by Jen Turano.  This was a wonderful story to lose myself in and it was an extremely quick read as I read it in about 6 hours.  I could have spent those 6 hours curled up in a chair reading straight through but, seeing as I have a family, those hours were split up across a few nights.

Eliza Sumner was a governess to 2 wonderful girls and 1 headstrong young adult for a upper-class family in New York in the late 1800's.  Little did that family know but, she wasn't just a normal governess.  She was actually Lady Eliza Sumner, an aristocrat from England.  

She was in New York incognito to recover her missing fortune and to reinstate her family's good name back in England.  But, first she will have to find the man that betrayed her father and stole every last cent they had. Little does she know but, God has other plans for her.  The only problem is Eliza has lost all faith and trust in God.

The other plan God has would come by the name of Mr. Hamilton Beckett.  A widower with two adorable children that would love nothing more than to make Eliza their mother.  The question is...Will Eliza regain her faith and trust in God in time to find her fortune and possibly fall in love with the man of her dreams?  Will she follow the plan for her life that God has laid out?

A story filled with jail time, lost fortunes, New York high society and, of course, love.  Throw in a little humor, here and there, and Turano has written a book that is impossible to put down.

*I was given a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of my review*
