A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald by Natasha Lester
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a wonderful story! A story I didn’t want to end.
Once you start reading you will not want to put this book down!
From the manors of Concord to the speakeasies of Manhattan, Evie dances her way to a doctor’s degree.
”She was doing what she wanted to do, living the life she chose to live, not the life someone else had chosen for her.”
But could a spurned suitor take everything she had battled for away from her?
This is a story of high society, secrets, lies, blackmail, misunderstandings and deathly tension.
Evie is the main character and Lester has been careful not to overshadow her with the delectable Thomas Whitman or, his mother, the delightful Mrs Whitman. It’s hard not to fall in love with these characters but the supporting characters are just that, coming in and out of the story to support or deter Evie where needed.
”Even if she could do it, did she have the strength to go against everyone’s wishes, to create a life for herself that was so different to what everyone expected of her.”
Not many, even in this day, would have the internal strength to forsake everything to follow their dream.
Evie’s story will lift your heart then send it crashing back down!
If you love to read Historical Fiction I highly recommend “A Kiss From Mr Fitzgerald”
