'This new novel from Natasha Lester is best read with gin and jazz.
Natasha Lester gives us all the glitz and glamour of classic romance in her third novel, a work of romantic women’s fiction that takes us back in time to the 1920s. There is gin, there is dancing, but there is also a patriarchal structure that suffocates any achievement by women. There are pretty dresses, and shoes to die for, but there are also graphic scenes of childbirth and the callous abuse of women. All these elements are woven together seamlessly.' (Introduction)
