Baroness by Susan May Warren

About the Book
Coming of age in the turbulent Roaring Twenties, two daughters of fortune can have anything they possibly want—except freedom. Expected to marry well and take the reins of the family empire, Lilly and Rosie have their entire lives planned out for them. But Lilly longs to flee the confines of New York City for the untamed wilds of Montana. Her cousin Rosie dreams of the bright lights of the newly emerging silver screen. But following their dreams—to avant-garde France, to dazzling Broadway, to the skies of the fearless wing walkers—will demand all their courage.
When forced to decide, will Lilly and Rosie truly be able to abandon lives of ease and luxury for the love and adventure that beckons? At what cost will each daughter of fortune find her true love and a happy ending?

My Thoughts
This book wowed me. The whole story was phenomenally written-of course!-and was such a beautiful emotion roller-coaster. I was laughing, crying, exclaiming in shock and everything in between. Sadly, when I first got this book I didn't make the name connection, so I was pleasantly surprised to realize that this story was about the daughters of Esme and Jinx from Heiress. This story doesn't span quite as many years as Heiress did but it does last for about four-I think. The characters are awesome and you end up rather tied up in their lives. I honestly can't wait for Duchess and you'll understand once you reach the end of Baroness.
