In 1913 in Dunnigan, Montana, Cora Diehl’s Papa suffers a stroke. She tries to sell her necklace to bring in needed money. Instead affluent Copper King Wallace Kensington explains to Cora that he not her Papa is her biological dad as he recognized her necklace (see Glamorous Illusions).

As her Papa gets the best medical care, Cora meets and joins her three distant half-siblings (Felix, Lillian and Vivian) on a Grand Tour of Europe hosted by Sir Stuart McCabe and his nephew, William McCabe. However, as the trip comes to an end, Cora misses her parents and will miss her new family and Will, but will not miss the press who stalk her almost as bad as the crazies trying to hurt her. Cora plans to refuse Pierre de Richelieu’s proposal as she loves Will, but prays he cherishes her as much as she does him.

The latest Grand Tour pre-WWI historical romance continues the entertaining European adventures of a devout Christian struggling with her new found affluence, her illegitimacy, reluctant acceptance by her biological family, her stalkers and her beloved. Although Pierre makes it too easy to dump him; readers, William and Cora know in our hearts she still is the farmer’s daughter.
