In Masquerade by Nancy Moser—the Christy Award winning author of How Do I Love Thee?—Charlotte Gleason embarks from England in 1886 with mixed feelings. Although she’s never met her fiancé, she's headed for New York to marry one of America’s wealthiest heirs. Filled with doubts and hoping for a chance at “real life”, she swaps identities with her maid, Dora. For Dora, it’s the chance of a lifetime. But for Charlotte, what begins as the whim of a spoiled rich girl becomes a test of survival beyond her darkest dreams.

MASQUERADE had a great story line with a wonderful spiritual message. It was very unusual and not so predictable. Nancy Moser does keep your interest with her writing style and story line. I plan to purchase more of her books. I also want to coment on what a terrific narrator Barbara Caruso is. I love her voice it has so much expression. I have heard her read many times and always look forward to listening to books that she narrates. Most inspirational fiction listeners will be entertained every minute of this fine book.
Overall I had a good time listening to this novel. At moments it reminds me some of Jane Austen and yet it lacked a bit of the depth. I was intrigued by the idea of the story but was sad that the ending middle was so fast. I felt like the characters never really met their full potential even though its a "happy ending" it felt a bit dull at the end like all the potential was drawn short. I guess I just wanted more.
But was it entertaining...yes. Did it capture me at times...yes. I just wanted more.
