Glittering Promises by Lisa Tawn Bergren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Lisa Bergren never ceases to amaze me. Glittering Promises was everything I expected and more. I couldn’t wait to turn the pages.
Cora and the rest of her group are faced with so many challenges during this final leg of their journey. It was an emotional rollercoaster, but in a good way. With each tragedy and crisis they face, it made me look deeper at my own life. We take so many things for granted these days. Life is not like it was back in Cora’s time. We are free to love, vote, work, and wear what we wish. Miss Kensington had to fight all of these issues. She not only had to find her own place in the world as a woman, but she had to constantly prove herself, not only to those reading the papers and her family, but also to herself. Throughout this series, Cora had to face the harsh realities of life and accept who she really is.
I found myself very satisfied at the end of this installment, yet very sad that Cora’s story is over. I wouldn’t mind if Lisa decided to expand this series (hint hint)
