Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings , to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about…
This week I can’t wait to begin reading Temptation Rag, a historical fiction novel by Elizabeth Hutchison Bernard.
Seventeen year old Mary Convery, unhappy with her privileged life in turn of the century New York City, dreams of becoming a poet. When she meets the talented young Mike Bernard, an aspiring concert pianist, she immediately falls in love. But after their secret liaison is discovered, neither is prepared for the far-reaching consequences that will haunt them for decades. From Vaudeville’s greatest stars to the geniuses of early African American musical theater, an unforgettable cast of real life characters populate this richly fictionalized historical saga.
I can’t wait to get started… does it sound enticing to you?
