Kelly | 782 comments This is another great Beatriz Williams novel. It takes place in the 1920’s. This time period in New York City is exciting. People are enjoying themselves even as they try to get over both personal losses and those from the First World War.

The story is told from two points of view. They are from a nineteen year old girl named Sophie and a forty year old woman socialite, Theresa. Another main character is a young man who was a pilot during the war, Octavian. Sophie comes from new money, and she becomes engaged to Theresa’s brother. However, she soon realizes he may not be right for her.

The book also reveals that there is unsolved murder from long ago in Connecticut. Someone is charged with the killing and the novel blends elements of the trial with the main characters very nicely. There are a few unexpected turns and the second half of the book was especially hard to put down. I enjoyed William’s storyline and her writing style.
