I cannot understand why this book averages only 3 star, I gave it 5 and would give it 100 if I could. The book is absolutely fabulous. I just had to keep on and on reading it held me captive, it is one of the best books I have ever read and I have read hundreds of books. It was different to the many books written in that era, it just had so much depth, I wish I could write better reviews but if you want a wonderful book you won't be able to put down just read it, I promise you will love it, you become immersed in this story and don't want it to finish while on the other hand having to keep reading to find out what happens when the two girls swap identities. An awesome book.
I didn't really relate to either of the main characters in this book. The "Lady" of the story was an entitled brat who needed to grow up. Her maid was slightly better, but I really felt like she got a little bit too big for her britches at some points and I didn't really care about her at all either. In the end they both find their own 'insta-love' and it works out, but by this stage you don't really care, except to say thank goodness it's all over.
A very light read. Lottie is so spoiled and privileged that I couldn't sympathise with her. Her experiences in NY were definitely the making of her. I appreciated the quiet references to the Christian faith and prayer.
