Vacation Reading: The Pursuit of Lucy Banning
What is Vacation Reading?
The type of book you would read to relax and disconnect. You could almost say it is for pure enjoyment or entertainment value. Light. Heartwarming.
The Pursuit of Lucy Banning by Olivia Newport was among one of my most recent vacation reads. Picture Chicago, 1893, during the World’s Fair. Lucy Banning lives in the lap of luxury and is expected to marry into another lap. But this gentleman isn’t so much of a gentleman. As Lucy wavers in her resolve to marry, she continues to attend school secretly, help at an orphanage, and develop a friendship with a caring architect named Will, who values the same things as Lucy.
A fire, a kidnapping, and a man gone mad is what you will discover in this novel!
