SUMMARY ç Empire Girls The critically acclaimed authors of I'll Be Seeing You return with a riveting tale of two sisters set in the intoxicating world of New York City during the Roaring TwentiesIvy and Rose Adams may be sisters but they're nothing alike Rose the eldest is the responsible one while Ivy is spirited and brazen After the unexpected death of their father the women are left to reconcile. I have always thought I should have been born earlier And if I had a choice it would be a toss up between being in my twenties in 1960 I would have made a grooooooovy flower child hippyor being in my twenties in 1920 I would have made an even better flapper No decade is perfect but anything would have been better than being 20 in 1986and I have the big haired pictures to prove itimage error

SUMMARY ç Empire Girls The estate when they make a shocking discovery not only has their father left them in financial ruin but he has also beueathed their beloved family house to a brother they never knew existed With only a photograph to guide the way Ivy and Rose embark to New York City determined to find this mysterious man and reclaim what is rightfully theirsOnce in New York temptations abound. Flapper era New York is having a moment The 1920s in Manhattan seems to be the setting of choice for novel after novel right now not without good reason of course What could be perfect than the glamour danger and reckless freedom of the era with young women living large gin flowing freely and a country going a little bit crazy after the trauma of war yearsFitting in nicely with this trend is the new novel Empire Girls focusing on two sisters Rose and Ivy and their adventures in the big city Rose and Ivy have been raised by their widower father in a uiet home in upstate New York Ivy is the free spirit going off with her father on explorations and adventures while Rose is the responsible one tending the house making sure dinner is served on time and trying to keep her family together But when their father dies suddenly the girls receive shocking news They have an older brother last seen in New York City who will inherit the house and unless they can find him and get him to deal with the estate s debts they ll be turned out of their homeWith no other options the girls set out for the city Ivy excited Rose in absolute dread and head for their brother s last known address the Empire House a semi respectable establishment renting rooms to young ladies under the watchful eye of a not terribly friendly landlady Once there the girls have to find their way through the temptations and risks of the city Never close before the sisters fight and come together each finding new facets of herself as they navigate gin joints and speakeasies charming gents and wild girls while piecing together the clues to track down their elusive brother Empire Girls succeeds in painting the New York of the 1920s capturing the sights smells and unbearable heat of summer in the city The novel vividly describes the allure of freedom for two country girls and what they must give up in order to thrive At the same time it s not all fun and abandon In Empire Girls we also get a taste of the sacrifices made by the men who lived through the Great War and come face to face with the darker side of the 1920s in the damaged soldiers who are left to rebuild lives for themselves Empire Girls is written by two authors each taking on the voice of one of the sisters so that Rose and Ivy each get to speak for themselves This mostly works although the narrative occasionally feels choppy and it was sometimes difficult to sort out whose voice we were hearing without referring back to the chapter headersStylistic issues aside I found the plot to be uite enjoyable nicely layering the mystery of the missing brother on top of the story of two young women finding themselves and rediscovering each otherMaybe the New York jazz age thing is getting a bit overdone but here it really works As a showcase for Rose and Ivy and their newfound independence the Manhattan of the 1920s is a great vehicle for illustrating the changing opportunities available to young women the wild freedom embraced by people who ve lived through the awful war years and the prospect of a future without rigid rules and societal expectationsAnd even importantly Empire Girls is just plain fun I enjoyed the characters the setting and the plot It s a uick book light but with real emotion and a great choice for a summer read This review also appears at Bookshelf Fantasies Review copy courtesy of the publisher via NetGalley
