Masquerade by Nancy Moser tells the story of two young ladies. Charlotte is a lady of means and Dora is her maid. When Charlotte is sent to visit her new fiancé whom she’s never met – Dora is to go with her – the two hatch a plan that will change their lives, and those of the people they meet forever.
I really enjoyed the book. It’s the first I’ve read by this author and upon looking at her other titles, I know it won’t be the last. In fact, I’m quite eager to get the rest of them! I would probably class it as Christian historical fiction – there are several references to God and prayer and church.
Parts of the storyline may have been slightly predictable, but I don’t think that takes anything from the book. Nancy Moser’s writing style made it easy to read with nice descriptions and interesting characters.
