Publisher's Summary

It's 1922 in the Manhattan of gin, jazz and prosperity. Women wear makeup and hitched hemlines - and enjoy a new freedom to vote and work. Not so for Evelyn Lockhart, who is forbidden from pursuing her passion to become one of the first female doctors. Chasing her dream will mean turning her back on her family: her competitive sister, Viola; her conservative parents; and the childhood best friend she is expected to marry, Charlie.
In a desperate attempt to support herself through Columbia University's medical school, Evie auditions for the infamous late-night Ziegfeld Follies on Broadway. But if she gets the part, what will it mean for her fledgling relationship with Upper East Side banker Thomas Whitman - a man Evie thinks she could fall in love with, if only she lived a life less scandalous?

Such a great story!

I picked this up on a whim and couldn't put it down! It is such a great story with dynamic characters that I was hoping someone will turn it into a mini series or film!
Totally recommend the book if you love stories from the roaring 20's

A Disappointment

This book would be well-chronicled in Seventeen Magazine. The characters are one-dimensional and the plot is predictable. None of the real struggle of women in the 1920's is depicted. The class and gender struggle is lost in hints so as not to shake the reader too far from the illusory fairytale of the virtuous spinster being swept into the arms of her rich and handsome dreamlover. There is not a subplot in sight to enrich our understanding of the difficulties women endured during this era. I think this book belongs in adolescent fiction so that 10 year old girls can catch an albeit shallow glimpse of our history.
