Wild Violets | [Trisha Sugarek]

Wild Violets

It's the roaring twenties in San Francisco, a decade famous for hot jazz and bath tub gin. Violet (The Guyer Girls) has grown into a beautiful woman with children of her own. She has left her small hometown in the Pacific Northwest to pursue a successful basketball career and with her earnings, she has bought a bar and grill. She is a 'flapper' in every sense of the word; working all day and playing all night. While her teenage daughter raises her seven-year-old son, Violet is out on the town with her latest man de' jour.

Publisher's Summary

It's the roaring twenties in San Francisco, a decade famous for hot jazz and bath tub gin. Violet (The Guyer Girls) has grown into a beautiful woman with children of her own. She has left her small hometown in the Pacific Northwest to pursue a successful basketball career and with her earnings, she has bought a bar and grill. She is a 'flapper' in every sense of the word; working all day and playing all night. While her teenage daughter raises her seven-year-old son, Violet is out on the town with her latest man de' jour.

Dressed in her signature red dress, she is the toast of the town and owner of a speakeasy where she hosts the cream of San Francisco's society, city politicians, Arch Bishops, and Hollywood celebrities. But there is an underbelly of corruption, grifters, the mob, excess, and neglect in Violet's life. Her two children are an afterthought and she chooses her men over their well-being time and time again.

Their childhood needs are always trumped by her self-indulgent desires. The two children are possessions that she can put down or pick up again on a whim. To show off to her current beau or friends and then forgotten. And when they get in her way, she gets rid of them.
