Told through the interwoven stories of a renowned dancer of Chicago’s Jazz Age and a present day film student, we see an incredibly raw and human story of love, family, perseverance and grief.
First off that cover is just so beautiful! I am enamored with the style of the 20s and this book is chock full of it; I felt like I was right there surrounded by the sights and sounds of the nightclubs! Although what is the Prohibition Era if not gritty as well, and this story also delivers on that front. The twists, drama, and revelations pulled me in until the very end. The dual storyline style is handled incredibly well, and kept me engaged as I could see they were going to converge, but was still left trying to understand how. I will say some of the mob storyline lost it a little bit for me, but I understand it's importance to create tension. If you loved The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and/or City of Girls please read this book, trust me!!
