New Book Release: Astor Place Vintage

Please join me in congratulating Stephanie Lehmann on the release of her fifth novel, Astor Place Vintage! I was flattered and privileged to help Stephanie with a partial developmental edit. Astor Place Vintage joins one of my favorite sub-genres of historical fiction: those with parallel present and past storylines. Here's the book description:

Amanda Rosenbloom, proprietor of Astor Place Vintage, thinks she’s on just another call to appraise and possibly purchase clothing from a wealthy, elderly woman. But after discovering a journal sewn into a fur muff, Amanda gets much more than she anticipated. The pages of the journal reveal the life of Olive Westcott, a young woman who had moved to Manhattan in 1907. Olive was set on pursuing a career as a department store buyer in an era when Victorian ideas, limiting a woman’s sphere to marriage and motherhood, were only beginning to give way to modern ways of thinking. As Amanda reads the journal, her life begins to unravel until she can no longer ignore this voice from the past. Despite being separated by one hundred years, Amanda finds she’s connected to Olive in ways neither could ever have imagined.

Astor Place Vintage is available now from all major book retailers, and here's the link to the book's page on Amazon. Visit Stephanie's website for more info on all of her books. Astor Place Vintage is touring the blogosphere with Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours! The tour stops on my blog, Let Them Read Books, with an interview and a giveaway on July 10th.

    1. I know, right? It's so depressing to think that I'll never read all of the books on my to-read list--not just because there are too many, but because I'll always be adding new ones!
