Reviews

"Romance, intrigue, suspense--Michael Callahan's latest has it all, and that's not even counting the glorious, heady world of the Miss America pageant in its heyday. Loosely inspired by real events, The Night She Won Miss America grabs you from the first chapter and takes you on a wild journey beginning in Atlantic City and ending in a showdown on a rocky cliff worthy of Hitchcock. But the heart of the book always remains its remarkable protagonist, a naΓ―ve young woman whose passions come to the surface with remarkable ferocity the moment the crown is placed on her head and never really let her--or us--go."--Melanie Benjamin, New York Times best-selling author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue

"I can't remember the last time I got so caught up in a novel. Michael Callahan's gorgeous prose brings to life an intoxicating world of beauty queens and thwarted dreams that will sweep you away in a whirlwind of intrigue, passion, and secrets."--Matthew Pearl, best-selling author of The Dante Club and The Last Bookaneer

"A heady whirl of gowns, gloves, chaperones, lipstick, escorts, cocktails, and romance. This engaging tale paints an evocative picture of a bygone era and the post-war ideal of young American womanhood."--Helen Bryan, author of the international bestseller War Brides
