Book Review - "The Invention of Sarah Cummings"

Olivia Newport returns to her Avenue of Dreams series with book 3, "The Invention of Sarah Cummings."  Sarah lived in St. Andrew's Orphanage after her parents were killed suddenly until she was sent to the Banning home to work.  Sarah longs to be out of service and be a part of the high society.  Sarah creates beautiful garments out of discarded outfits and with these outfits creates an individual whom fits into high society, Serena Cuthbert.  As Sarah becomes more immersed in the role of Serena she believes her time to get into society is coming shortly.  However, at the same time, Sarah finds herself being pulled back into St. Andrew's Orphanage as she leads a sewing class for the young girls and finds herself drawn to the director, Simon Tewell.

This is such a great addition to the series and I really enjoyed Sarah's story.  Sarah was not my favorite character in the last book, but she grew on me throughout that story and I absolutely loved her in this book!  I also really loved Lillie, she was a new character in this book and new to Chicago's high society.  It was nice to read about Lucy and Charlotte as well as the entire Banning family and see how their lives have been since the last story ended.  I really got lost in this story and was transported to Chicago and to this time period and the characters' lives.  I highly recommend this series and I am hoping for many more series from this author!
