Of Rags and Riches Romance Collection | Book Review


The Gilded Age of the late 1800s was a time of opulence, growth, and great change for all aspects of American life. Modern conveniences and improvements paved the way for western expansion and leisure activities. The rich became richer, and the poor worked hard to make a better life for themselves. Nine couples meet during these exhilarating times and work to build a future together through fighting for social reform, celebrating new opportunities for relaxation, taking advantage of economic growth and new inventions, and more.

I do not read novellas too often, but when I do, I usually enjoy them. Collections of novellas especially prove to be a lot of fun because I can quickly read one before picking up something else or just binge them all in one go. Of Rags and Riches Romance Collection had me binging, and I loved it.

In Of Rags and Riches Romance Collection, nine authors share stories of the Gilded Age. It is a time when relations between the rich and the poor are fraught with complications, and as these stories delve into the possibility of romance amidst these complications, love and faith shine in the most heartwarming of ways.

For the historical-romance reader struggling to actually read right now, I definitely recommend this collection. The novellas are short, but oh so engaging and fun reads.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
