Product Description

Raised in an exclusive boarding school among Fifth Avenue's finest, Meg Davenport has all she's ever needed . . . but none of the things she's wanted most, like family, or dreams of a future that includes anything other than finding a suitable match. So when her distant father dies, she seizes the chance to throw etiquette aside and do as she pleases. Especially when she learns that John Davenport wasn't the wealthy businessman she thought, but one of the Gilded Age's most talented thieves.

Publishers Weekly

The sheltered life Meg Davenport has known at a prestigious school is shattered when her estranged father, Skipjack, dies and the 18-year-old girl discovers that the riches he used to keep her in a life of luxury were illegally gotten. Meg scorns the traditional options—teaching or marrying—available to her in late-19th-century New York and inexplicably decides to follow in her con-artist father’s footsteps. In her attempts to bilk the family of two school friends out of their rumored fortune in hidden gold, she finds herself caught in a power struggle between Skipjack’s attractive protégé and surrogate son, Ian, and Brewster, another member of her father’s gang of thieves. Ian also is at odds with Skipjack’s religious fiancée, Kate, whose unwelcome morals had started to influence his mentor to go straight. In the middle of a growing romance between Meg and Ian, the author (the Great War series) uses a slow-moving, unlikely plot to touch on issues of abandonment, loyalty, faith, and life not always going the way you plan. Agent: Rachelle Gardner. (July) 2012 Reed Business Information

    Meg Davenport has everything she needs in the way of material possessions, but the one thing she wants she will never have. Raised in an exclusive school for young ladies, she has no family except for a father she never sees. Having given up her girlhood fantasies of running away long ago, she has resigned herself to a future of disappointments, disillusionment, and the death of every dream she's ever had.

    But when her father dies, she wants to break every rule she's ever been made to follow. Determined to fully explore her new freedom exactly as she pleases, she discovers things about her father that fail to make up for the lack of his presence in her life. Discovering that John Davenport was one of the Gilded Age's most talented thieves does not dissuade her from hatching a master plan with Ian Maguire, the boy her father raised into a man very much like himself. Will they be able to pull off the biggest heist of Ian's career, or are they both reaching too high, too far, and too fast? Will they loose everything for the sake of trying to prove their worth to the people around them?

    I had no idea what to expect in this book. I knew there was going to be thieves involved, and that alone piqued my interest. Lang is a new author for me, and I was pleasantly surprised to find this lovely novel was full of adventure, excitement, and even a little bit of romance. Meg never comes across as a stuck up or snotty; but a girl waiting to emerge from her life of privilege and truly grow up. Granted, she has quite a few misadventures along the way, but Lang weaves a tale that brings enough thrills to keep you riveted to it's pages till the very end.

    I found the first half of this book dragged a bit but I couldn't put it down for the second half. It always amuses me to see how 'proper' society lived in those days. The book included some very interesting characters and I especially loved the way the Pemberton family dealt with each other when someone went against the rules - deciding to extend grace or mercy - or to punish in some way. This book portrayed the good and bad sides of life and the importance of making wise choices. There was a mixture of adventure, romance and suspense and a clear understanding of God's grace, mercy and love.

    I have read some other books by this author that I really enjoyed. The description of the story line sounded interesting but I was disappointed. I had to make myself finish the book as it just did not capture my interest. It was too long in my opinion. I will try other books by this author but this one just was not as good as her Great War series.

    I love Maureen Langs books and have really enjoyed her writing. This book wasn't at the top of my list of hers. I personally wasn't a fan of the main character's attitude, but given what she went through, you could sort of understand. I had our book club read it and they were "ok" with it as well. So it is ok to be used in a book club. Some will enjoy it more than others. The ending was very nice as well.

    SUMMARY:

    Meg Davenport, a student at Madame Marisse's exclusive boarding school, longs to be included, loved and part of her father's life. At his death, she learns who her father truly was and wonders if she might possess the same innate qualities to be a Gilded Age thief. Ian Maguire, a handsome rouge, plans to continue where Meg's father left off but finds himself torn between using Meg's high societal influence and protecting Meg from herself. Involved in a dangerous plot, Meg finds herself growing in her faith, her love and what truly matters most in life.

    A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:

    This book grabbed my attention from the cover, the title and then the first page. It is fast-paced, dangerously adventurous and enchantingly enjoyable. As the main character, it was interesting to watch Meg grow from a pampered, sheltered young woman into a faith-based, conscientious mature person. Full of precarious situations, suspenseful confrontations, historical encounters and even a little bit of romance, I truly loved this book from beginning to end.

    Maureen Lang was a new author for me but will definitely be a repeat one. I already have the next book in the Gilded Age Legacy Series, All in Good Time!
