An accomplished and absorbing novel…
Rosenberg brings forth a fine historical inspired by Elizabeth McCourt Tabor, better known as Baby Doe whose rags-to-riches and back to rags again story made her a famous figure in history. Resolutely independent, Baby Doe endured shunning from the polite society for her fierce beauty and her unruly disregard to society’s prevailing norms. Rosenberg brings the 1880s to life with reminiscent period detail and a captivating story. The skilful plotting and richly crafted characters get readers immediately drawn in. Told in third-person omniscient, the novel brings home the era’s conservative customs and describes the fabric of a woman’s existence in an orthodox society. Rosenberg’s poignant account delivers a stunning historical, and the open-ending climax makes readers wait eagerly for the next installment.
