The Bronx, 1891. Virginia Loftin, the boldest of four artistic sisters in a family living in genteel poverty, knows what she wants most: to become a celebrated novelist despite her gender, and to marry Charlie, the boy next door and her first love. When Charlie proposes instead to a woman from a wealthy family, Ginny is devastated; shutting out her family, she holes up and turns their story into fiction, obsessively rewriting a better ending. Though she works with newfound intensity, literary success eludes her—until she attends a salon hosted in her brother's writer friend John Hopper's Fifth Avenue mansion. Among painters, musicians, actors, and writers, Ginny returns to herself, even blooming under the handsome, enigmatic John's increasingly romantic attentions. Just as she and her siblings have become swept up in the society, though, Charlie throws himself back into her path, and Ginny learns that the salon's bright lights may be obscuring some dark shadows. Torn between two worlds that aren't quite as she'd imagined them, Ginny will realize how high the stakes are for her family, her writing, and her chance at love.

A quick summer read. What I enjoyed about this book is that first-time author Joy Callaway is that she was inspired by her ancestors and wrote about them in a simple but interesting way. The story is full of surprise twists and sad events.

Suspenseful, somewhat adventure like. I enjoyed the simplicity of the story. Not to complicated. Characters were interesting and very different. The story was sad but respectful at the same time. Enjoyed reading it as a quick summer read. Looking forward in reading more from this author in the future.
