really liked it

When it comes to her future, Katie O’Connor has a plan.
And it does not include Cluny McGee—the street kid who used to torture her when she was ten.
Her plan includes law school and Jack and upward momentum.
Did I mention it does NOT include Cluny—now calling himself Luke—McGee.
No, her plan includes independence and fighting for women’s rights and freedom from her father’s rules.
Which she has a tendency to break.
And his punishments.
Which land her in purgatory.
Working for the children’s aid society.
Under the direct orders of the King of Misery.
You guessed it . . . Cluny McGee.

Technically this is book 1 in the Winds of Change series, but chronologically it is the fourth book about the O’Connor sisters (after the Daughters of Boston series). A Hope Undaunted is one of my favorites in the series. Set in 1929 (the year of the Great Crash), the history of the era plays a vital role in the action of the book. And the 1920’s slang and mentality come across loud and clear in Katie’s strong-minded opinions.
