Review: A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald by Natasha Lester

A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald by Natasha Lester

A Kiss From Mr Fitzgerald

I loved this book and don’t hesitate to give it 5 stars.

It’s the 1920s in Manhattan. A new era where women enjoy more freedom but not without a struggle to achieve it.

Evie Lockhart is one of these women. Evie wants to follow her dream of being an obstetrician but even in New York with its gin, jazz, glitter and modernity, a woman wanting to become a doctor is all but ostracized.

After leaving her comfortable home, her conservative family, and Charlie – the boy next door who she is expected to marry, Evie is alone and has to pay her own way in medical school. To do this she joins the Ziegfeld Follies.

The alluring Thomas Whitman, an Upper East Side banker, a man she could easily love, is also the boy next door. But a Ziegfeld girl, who also wants to be a doctor, has no chance of marrying such a man. Her scandalous life would drag him down.

Evie must decide. Should she let Thomas go or give up everything she has worked for?

Natasha Lester has written a lively story, with compelling, lovable characters. It is well researched and brings the era alive.

I enjoyed Natasha Lester’s writing style, with her humour and quick quips.

This story will carry you along with hope, laughter, love, and sadness.

I would certainly recommend it to everyone who wants a good read, and who enjoys the jazz age with its vibrancy, fashions and music.
