I started reading historical fiction books a few years ago. Learning about different time periods and parts of the world is very interesting to me. An Unlikely Suitor is a recently published book from Bethany House Publishers that I received for free to review.
An Unlikely Suitor takes place in New York City at the end of the 1800s. Lucy, a diligent, working class 20something, is the main character, who spends all of her energy working hard to support and provide for her family – her mother and younger sister.
Throughout the story, Lucy has to deal with the separation of classes and it was sad to me to see how often crossing these class lines had negative consequences.
This story was very descriptive and a fast read. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical fiction. This was the second book I read by this author, Nancy Moser, and look forward to reading more of her works.
