It's time for Writer Wednesday, when I discuss another author and his or her book. Today's pick is Empire Girls by Suzanne Hayes and Loretta Nyhan.
New York City: a place of hopes and dreams. The 1920s: a time of longing for better days than WWI and of evading prohibition. This is the backdrop for the story of Empire Girls. Two sisters, each telling the story in alternating chapters and written by one of the authors, set out to discover their father's past and a missing brother when their father suddenly dies.
This historical, reminiscent in tone to The Other Typist, conveys heart and explores the bond of sisters and what that means in light of uprooted lives and new situations. A host of colorful secondary characters rounds out this dazzling tale. By the end, perhaps you'll even feel that you have become an empire girl.
My best to you all,
