Publisher's Summary

New York City, 1906. With the fast-approaching death of their mother, the lives of two sisters, Martha and Lilah Caldon, are about to change. Lilah, the younger of the two, is favored by their mother. She receives the best education and attends various social events outfitted in the finest wardrobe. The only exception is the annual Broadway play Martha attends with her parents, when Lilah is left at home. Every year since she turned 16, Martha and her parents have gone backstage after the play to meet Miss Sahara, the beautiful leading actress.

Once Martha’s mother passes, she feels liberated. Martha is excited to pursue her dream of becoming a part of the Women’s Movement. The death of her mother also allows Martha’s friendship with Miss Sahara to strengthen. Martha finds herself coming alive in the presence of Miss Sahara and the handsome and fun-loving theater manager, Rick Wentworth. As her own romance blossoms, Martha becomes aware of the strong attraction between Miss Sahara and her otherwise reserved father, which makes her wonder about her father’s past...and her own.

Enjoyed this historical novel.

Sometimes a short story is all you want. This one is a great 4.5 hour listen. The narration was excellent. Jennifer Jill Araya was a great choice for the narration. The author, Ruth Zavitsanos has written a great story. It was a story that keepsyour interest. I would re-listen to this book again in the future.

Lost myself in this book!

I listened to this book in 2 days. I could not wait to hear how the story unfolded. The characters are so alive! One of the best books I've read in a long time.

Life happens

A Life Unfolds In the City
: Ruth G. Zavitsanos

This historical fiction is set in the growing New York City. Two sisters were treated unequally by their mother. The youngest being the favored child. When the mother dies will the sisters get along? There are some interesting situations as the story and lives unfold. A rather quick listen for a lazy afternoon.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed by Jennifer Jill Araya.

Very good story, I enjoyed my first audio book.

The story line was rather interesting and really followed through. No questions left in my mind which is rather a feather in the authors cap. I don't want to give the story away, but so worth the time.
