The Invention of Sarah Cummings, Paperback / softback Book

The Invention of Sarah Cummings Paperback / softback

Part of the Avenue of Dreams series


Sarah Cummings has one goal in life--to break into Chicago's high society.

Desperate to stop serving dinner and to start eating at society tables, Sarah alters cast-off gowns from the wealthy Banning women to create lustrous, flattering dresses of her own.

On a whim at a chance meeting, she presents herself as Serena Cuthbert, weaving a fictitious past to go with her fictitious name.

But as she gets closer to Simon Tewell, the director of St. Andrew's Orphanage, Sarah finds that she must choose between the life she has and the life she dreams of.

Will she sacrifice love to continue her pretense? Or can Simon show her that sometimes you don't have to pretend for dreams to come true?Olivia Newport brings us back to Prairie Avenue to explore the place where class, social expectations, and romance come together.

Readers will enjoy following the intrepid Sarah as she searches for true love in a world of illusions.
