Product Description

Sarah Cummings has one goal in life-to break into Chicago's high society. Desperate to stop serving dinner and to start eating at society tables, Sarah alters cast-off gowns from the wealthy Banning women to create lustrous, flattering dresses of her own. On a whim at a chance meeting, she presents herself as Serena Cuthbert, weaving a fictitious past to go with her fictitious name. But as she gets closer to Simon Tewell, the director of St. Andrew's Orphanage, Sarah finds that she must choose between the life she has and the life she dreams of. Will she sacrifice love to continue her pretense? Or can Simon show her that sometimes you don't have to pretend for dreams to come true?

    This is book number three in the Avenue of Dreams series. On Prairie Avenue Sarah Cummings has come to work as a housemaid, but she has dreams of breaking into Society. Using her off hours to alter dresses that the Banning women has discarded, Sarah works endlessly. The Banning family has left for their summer on the lake, leaving only a couple of servant's to take care of the home on Prairie Ave. On one of her afternoon outings, Sarah runs into Lillie Wagner, a young woman of high society. She introduces herself as Serena Cuthbert and her dream of getting into polite society begin to come within her reach.

    Simon Tewell, the director of St Andrews has asked Sarah to teach a sewing class to the girls at the orphanage. Sarah reluctantly agrees, but as the summer progresses on she finds that she likes teaching but her life has become more and more entangled with her deception, until one day Sarah discovers that she is in way over her head.

    When I first met Sarah in book number two, I truly disliked her. She was selfish and self-centered and was willing to cause trouble in any area of the household just so she can make herself look good. I really put off reading this book because I just didn't want to read about her.

    But in this book she grows and matures and learns who God is and how much He loves us and how we can love others through Him. I actually came to like her.

    Overall the book was a wonderful read, good characters and God woven into the storyline. The ending of the book was amazing, something I didn't see coming at all.

    While the main character is not very likeable at first, this book is hard to put down! My husband and I read half of the book in one day! Sarah Cummings with her false identity is often close to being discovered. This made the book exciting to read! I do wish the author had tied up a few loose items more satisfactorily, but I love this book! My husband thought it was one of the best fiction books he has ever read--"way up there."

    I really enjoyed the first two books in the series!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think my opinion of Sarah influenced my not liking this book as much! The heroines in the previous books were so nice!!!! Sarah does finally come around. I would recommend reading the series in order!!!!!! I'd gladly read the next book if this series continues!!!!!

    I thought the author did an awesome job with descriptions of the surroundings, etc. so you really felt you were a time period by-stander in each book!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The setting is the best part of this historical book. The time period is described beautifully. The clothes of the time are easy to picture with the authors flowing descriptions. I gave this book 4/5 stars. Where the descriptions were great the main female character was just not written as a very likable person. I did not enjoy her and her interactions with those around her. I did get how the author was trying to show how she changes over the pages but it was hard to like her. I would recommend this book to someone who is interested in the time period and setting more than the characters.

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    The main character Sarah was materialistic, self-absorbed, deceptive, judgmental, and thoughtless. I'm sure we all can be at times, but it didn't make her much of a heroine, since I was rooting the whole time for her to be discovered and wanted to warn Simon away from her. Her change of heart would have been more redemptive had it not happened after her other options ran out. Too little, too late.
