daring to dream

daring to dream
dream trilogy #1
nora roberts
severn house
published 1998

Margo, Kate and Laura were brought up like sisters amidst the peerless grandeur of Templeton House. But it was Margo whose dreams first took her far away . . .
Margo Sullivan had everything a young woman could ask for. But while growing up along the rocky cliffs of Monterey, she couldn't help but dream of bigger things. The daughter of the Templeton's stern Irish housekeeper, Margo had been treated like a member of the family. Deep down, she knew that money could not but the thing she craved most -- her mother's acceptance.

Maybe things would be different if she could be sweet like Laura -- or had Kate's shrewd head for business. But all Margo knew how to do was be Margo, and that meant doing things her own way -- no matter what the consequences . . . 

There is not much more to this than a fluffy, fun romance novel.  Like the Born in trilogy.  Though I do like the characters, the story, the idea of the trilogy, what I always liked best about this trilogy is the setting.  Monterey/Big Sur is where I spent much of my childhood so it's fun to picture Pretenses on Cannery Row nestled along the touristy shops I grew up with.
