The Price of Privilege, by Jessica Dotta, is the third book in the Price of Privilege Trilogy. It is set in England in the Victorian Era, and presents an interesting picture of both the wealthy and the poor of the period.
As the story begins, Julia Auburn and her new husband Edward are excited about beginning their new life together. But shortly after, they discover more problems than they know how to handle, and they end up going to London to live with Julia’s father. The situation becomes very difficult to deal with when Julia’s first husband, to whom she was never legally married because he used a false name, returns and claims she is still his wife. Having destroyed any evidence about his true identity, she faces a legal battle to determine her future, and her new husband is arrested.
This book was very well-written. Even so, I had a difficult time following the plot, as I had not read the first two books in the series. I could certainly tell the characters were well-developed throughout the trilogy. They were very realistic and easy to relate to.
I would recommend this book to all who enjoy Christian fiction from this era, but I would advise the reader to begin with the first book of the trilogy.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
