Allmänna fakta



Well this was disappointing. Described as “Mesmerizing historical novel about three women in 1920s New York City and the secrets they hold.” Couldn’t wait to read about the 1920s! New York! Fashion!

What the description failed to mention was a vivid child rape scene about 70 pages into the novel. Then the story concentrated on a seriously depressed woman. After 119 pages, I decided life is too short to continue reading this downer of a book.

I read for entertainment, and I was not entertained. Maybe the story got better and probably ended happily, but I bet it got worse before it got better. I did not finish this one.

Content warning: child rape

Great biography book for children! Some of the paragraphs are a bit choppy and sometimes don't always seem to fit but are added because it was a part of his life. I would prefer if the paragraphs and sentences flowed more easily and better, but it is still a good biography book nonetheless.

From the beginning I was completely enthralled by the characters of the story. The story is told from 3 strong women; Bea, Alice and Catherine, in the 20’s era. Each one has a distinct voice and heartbreaking pass. As the story moves into the present, they soon discover secrets of each other that connects them more than they realize.
A moving story of found family that works brilliantly during the time period.
