Romance in the Roaring Twenties - when the rules were clear and made to be broken. A coming of age story of one young woman's transformative journey of love, betrayal, and redemption. Historical fiction "clean and sweet" but "raw and real." Come on this wonderful journey into Somewhere Still.
In this coming-of-age story, we see the thin reed upon which many lived in the Roaring Twenties and witness the power of love and its ability to heal and mend divides. Somewhere Still is written with tenderness as it demonstrates the transformative power of the human spirit to build bridges and extend a helping hand.
Written as a gift to her own mother, the author tells of a society in transition which serves as a backdrop for this story of the price of love, the hurts that are slowest to heal, and a certain kind of infinite redemption found when women band together across race and class.
From the day Jean Ball lands a job at the elegant Empire hotel, she quickly learns the secrets of the entitled class. Dazzled by a Roaring Twenties society on the cusp of radical change, this naive and innocent young woman finds herself dancing, bobbing her hair, and falling for Elden Whitcomb, the handsome son of the wealthy hotel owner. The stakes rise when the Whitcombs’ powerful secrets are revealed and loving Elden comes at a price – one that may be too high for Jean to pay.
Shattered and alone, Jean's in the battle of her life in a city alive with romance, smoky speakeasies, jazz music and scandal, but divided by race and class. With the help and encouragement of influential women, Jean may find what she has always needed, though her choices could echo through generations. But will the man she trusted and so fiercely loves redeem himself?
