Product Description

It's the summer of 1913 and Cora Kensington's life on the family farm has taken a dark turn. The crops are failing and worse, so is her father's health. Then a stranger comes to call and in one fateful afternoon, Cora discovers that her birth father is a copper king-a man who invites her to tour Europe with her new family. As she travels across America, then on to England and France, Cora faces the hardships as well as the privileges of assuming the family name. And though now she knows more of her true identity, she soon discovers the journey is only beginning.

Publisher's Description

When Cora Kensington learns she is the illegitimate daughter of a copper king, her life changes forever. Even as she explores Europe with her new family, she discovers that the most valuable journey is within. The first book in the Grand Tour series takes you from the farms of Montana through England and France on an adventure of forgiveness, spiritual awakening, and self-discovery.

Author Bio

Lisa T. Bergren is the award-winning author of over thirty-five books, with more than 2 million copies sold. A former publishing executive, Lisa now divides her time between writing, editing, parenting three children with her husband, Tim, and dreaming of her next trip to Italy. She lives in Colorado Springs.

Publisher's Weekly

Bergren, award-winning author of nearly 40 books with two million–plus sold, launches readers into a sumptuous world of wealth and world travel with the first in the Grand Tour Series featuring Cora Diehl Kensington. Cora learns she is the illegitimate daughter of Montana copper baron Wallace Kensington, which sets her on a journey of discovery and healing when she joins her half siblings and their wealthy friends on a Grand Tour of Europe. Will McCabe, their guide, worries over the precarious family dynamics and his own developing feelings for Cora, who must face her own demons when her siblings sabotage her every move. The family must come together, however, when danger threatens all of them. Readers will come to love Cora as she struggles over her feelings for Will and the dashing Frenchman Pierre de Richelieu, and they’ll delight in the scenes of England and France in pre-WWI Europe. This is a worthy beginning to the series. (June) 2012 Reed Business Information

    Wonderful book! Book 1 of the Grand Tour series. This is the story of Cora Diehl, a young Montana farm girl, who learns a secret her parents didn't want her know, but it has become necessary. She becomes part of a travel party on a grand tour of Europe. For Cora, this is not only a discovery of the wonders of Europe, but a discovery of who she is beyond the name. The book begins in 1913 Montana and ends in Paris. Cora feels an attraction to Will, who is their guide, along with his uncle. On the boat from England to France, she meets the dashing Pierre de Richelieu who is smitten with her. This is a series that must be read in its entirety to reveal the whole story.

    This is a book about the grand tours that the rich people's kids used to do in the olden times. Makes me almost want to go on one myself....if I were rich enough now.

    Lisa T. Bergren's books and writing have always been satisfying reads. Grand Illusions is no exception.

    Combine Bergren's writing, historical fiction, and the image of families making the illustrious and educational "Grand Tour" of Europe in the early 1900s and you undoubtedly have a winning story to share.

    Cora Kensington's character was drawn from the poorest of Montana farm families to experience the Grand Tour with family members she has never met. People who are diametrically opposed to everything Cora has ever known. Yet, Cora knows exactly who she is meant to be, or so she believes.

    Cora is torn between staying behind to manage what is left of the failing family farm as her father is ill and can no longer work the farm. Her parents are insistent upon her going as a certain stranger has appeared and offered the trip of a lifetime to Cora. What Cora uncovers is that this stranger is part of a secret from her past. An uncomfortable secret.

    On the trip Cora encounters the best and the worst of family relationships. And she becomes enamored with a love she did not expect, while another waits in the shadows of her life feeling himself unfit and too poor compared to his competition.

    As always, Bergren's plot, characters, and scenes are well crafted. A book easy to get caught up in, Glamorous Illusions lives up to the author's reputation and the book's title.

    Recommendation: Lovers of historical fiction and the early 1900s, as well as Europe during that time period, will thoroughly enjoy Glamorous Illusions. There is really nothing more that needs to be said about this book.

    This was a great story showing the contrast between Cora's down to earth life on the farm and the tour of Europe among high society. Lots of romance and adventure but more importantly the focus of seeking the Lord's will in all of life.
