A historical fiction novel set in the 1920s
Elizabeth Alter longs for two things: a place of her own and an unmarried life. No one thinks Elizabeth can manage independent living, and even she questions a future of eating only toast, the one thing she can cook.
She watches her friends test society’s boundaries, desperate for the courage to push back too. She loves dancing, but the city’s harridans and preachers want it all—the promiscuous dancing, wild jazz, and skimpy dresses—to end.
Caught in the crosshairs of society’s narrow expectations for women, will Elizabeth dare to chase her dreams? Or will her own heart conspire against her?
