Part Two : Crestmont by Holly Weiss

Remember the FirstWild Card Tour we witnessed on my Blog yesterday which showed the book trailer and a book excerpt from Chapter One of Crestmont by Holly Weiss. Well , today readers I present you with an insight into the story of Crestmont.


                                     Synopsis - Crestmont - Holly Weiss - April 2010

"A dream, after all, needn't be fueled by particulars, only by desire."

So notes main character, Gracie Antes, in CRESTMONT, a historical fiction gem set in the 1920s.
Determined to take control of her life, sheltered Gracie Antes leaves her unhappy home in 1925 to pursue her dream of a singing career. On her way to the big city, she accepts a job as a housemaid at the bustling Crestmont Inn. Once there, Gracie finds a life-changing encounter with opera singer Rosa Ponselle, family she never imagined could be hers, and a man with a mysterious past. Relive the 1920s with a colorful cast of characters. Discover with Gracie that sometimes we must trade loss for happiness.
Set in Eagles Mere, Pennsylvania, the story is interwoven with details about the town, the rich history of The Crestmont Inn, and the family who passed ownership from one generation to the next.
Many attempts have been made to explain how the mountaintop lake nestled in this tiny town came to be. Crestmont gives a new twist to an old Native American legend, setting the tone of grace around which the story is built.
Let the period of the Roaring Twenties spark your interest with its unique social mores, fashion, jazz, and yes, a little bootlegging thrown in for pizzazz.

Readers of Books like The Luxe and Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen and All That Jazz by Dee Williams , authors along the lines of Dilly Court, Anna Jacobs , Maureen Lee, Tracie Peterson , Siri Mitchell are sure to enjoy Crestmont by Holly Weiss.

Say Goodbye to the Year 2010 and take a blast into the past and say Hello to the Year 1925 with Holly Weiss.
