Charlotte Farrow has been quietly working in Chicago for the Banning household for over a year. No one really knows anything about her except Lucy Banning but she is off on her honeymoon. Charlotte has been able to guard her secret for a year and a half until the secret shows up in a laundry basket and threatens to bring complete uproar to the Banning household. Charlotte has a baby boy named Henry, and if the word gets out that he is hers, she will be turned out of the household. This secret is getting harder and harder to guard. There is a meddling new maid hot on her heels, Archie, the groomsman, is in love with Charlotte, and now the Bannings’ guest Ms Emmaline fancies herself to love little Henry and wants to take him home to Boston to make him her own son. To make matters worse, Charlotte thinks she has seen her estranged husband at the World Fair, and he obviously wants something from her. How can Charlotte achieve a modicum of peace if at every corner her precarious position is threatened to be taken?
The only thing that Charlotte has to hold on to is the faith that her grandmother instilled in her that God loves her and He has everything under control. How does He have everything under control when it seems like everything in Charlotte’s life is out of control?
The Dilemma of Charlotte Farrow is a heart rending story about a woman who has to make an impossible decision for herself and her child. This is more of an inspirational than a historical romance. This story really spotlights love beyond that of a man and woman, but rather the love and trust between a woman and her Creator. Grab your Kleenex ladies. This one is a tear jerker.
