About the Author
I am a southern girl through and through and have lived in three beautiful cities in the south - my beloved Birmingham, AL, New Orleans, LA, and now Atlanta, GA. Inspired at an early age by my late aunt, a noted Alabama historian, I love escaping into the vast history of my southern roots and living the dream of a historical fiction author. There are no plans to disturb my slumber-it's who I am.
I really enjoyed this, it was what I was hoping for from a historical romance novel, I was so invested in what was going on and I enjoyed getting to know the characters within it. The way the story did a good job in keeping the reader invested and I enjoyed going through this. Jaye Burke has a great writing style and I can't wait to read more from them."The man looked familiar, and after an hour of trying to remember, it became clear. She had met Art Micheaux on the streetcar on the way to Mandeville with Emilie. He must have finished graduate school at Loyola. Her father hired no one without a graduate's degree in finance." Netgalley review

It all kicked off at that summer home, Belle Haven, when the complacent dull life of the rich and privileged class lass went...BOOM! Fireworks! Venice was never the same again! A whole range and tweaks of emotions and events evoked and evolved from that chance meeting with Etienne. The book very ingenuiously embraces romance, enduring love, deceit, class disparity, a WWI setting, the Spanish Flu and so much more. One of those "can't put it down" books of nostalgic proportions. The author really knows how to spin a story and keep a secret; that is, keep the reader guessing, splashing and sprinkling surprizes and twists along the way when least expected. Despite some deep sadnesses and heartaches this has been a very satisfying read for me and I absolutely loved the superb ending! I believe most readers will too. Eunice C., Reviewer/Blogger

I picked this book thinking it wasn't my kind of book and was I ever wrong. This is one of the best Romance books I've read. It's so tastefully done and you can tell how much respect the Author has for their characters. There were ups and downs, twists and turns, a war, and pandemic. I fell for Venice our main character and love how much her Father loved her especially with the issues she had with her Mother and him always wanting her to be happy over everything else. Also the way she could never get Etienne out of her head because he was her true love. I would recommend this one over and over again! -Netgalley review
