Book Review - A Kiss From Mr. Fitzgerald (Hachette Australia)
Natasha Lester’s latest novel, A Kiss From Mr Fitzgerald, is set in New York’s dazzling age of affluence and jazz, where Evelyn Lockhart is working against the odds to become the first female doctor of her generation. Evelyn seeks a greater purpose in life than that prescribed by her family and finds herself embroiled in the glamorous nocturnal world of the Ziegfeld Follies as a means to pay for her medical studies. But will her ambition to become an obstetrician stand in the way of winning the heart of the man she loves? Lester’s historical romance is written with the charm and eloquence of Austen and Alcott, in what feels like a classic, reinvented for the modern age. A highly recommended read.
