My Review: 

When Cora Diehl comes home from Teacher College, she find her father in the barn semiconscious and her mother weeping over him. Her father suffered a stroke but he recovered. To save the cropes, Cora sell her necklace from a secret benefactor and she buys seeds.
 After a time her father suffer another stroke and this time he needs medical care.When Senator Wallace Kensington arrives , he offers to help her father.  Cora discovers  that she is Kensington illegitimate daughter. He invites Cora into a Grand Tour in Europe to meet her half brother and sisters.
During the Grand Tour , Cora  finds a great friend into the young guide Will, she tries to get along well with her sisters ,Vivian and Lil and her brother  Felix and also with the family friends, the Morgans . She  struggles to be accepted and also to find her identity.  I love how the author describe the places, the fellings of Cora’s and also the friendship between Cora and Will. Will love her very much but Cora is not sure of her fellings for him.
Cora encounters adventures, new places but also danger . In France she meet an aristrocat man , Pierre de Richelieu, and she spends beautiful days with him.   I love this book , it was like a journey to new places, a journey of heart, a journey of faith.  The main character Cora is a independent girl, bold and very strong, different from other girls.
This book was very good I am waiting for the next volume in the series to be realeased. This novel is a five stars novel.
I want to thank very much to the publisher  David C. Cook who sent me this copy of book via NetGalley.
