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.
