Young and rebellious, Ruth Squire defied her parents to live the high life of young people in 1929 Detroit. Handsome and responsible, Peter Kirby worked diligently to make his family's life easier. Rich and powerful, Eric Horton held the fates of many families in his hands.
These three lives intertwine through the differing worlds of high society, middle-class life, and organized crime, culminating in an engagement, a kidnapping, a misunderstanding...
...and a murder.
The advantage of having the author narrate the book is that the voice inflections are spot on. Ruth Squire is a rebellious young lady in the dangerous times of 1929 in Detroit, Michigan. Ruth wants to explore the world, her parents want her married. Secrets and lies cause young Ruth to grow up quickly and the unexpected attraction to the chosen bridegroom cause even more complications. If historical fiction is what you crave, this is an excellent choice.
