Review: A Certain Age

A Certain Age A Certain Age by Beatriz Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The 1920's were a time of great change in the US society. The WW1 just ended and it was an era of fast technological discoveries. After decades of inequality between men and women, the "not so fair" sex finally got her chance to fulfil her dreams. This independence brought women the right to vote, the right to work and the right to higher education. The 20's were also a time of fun and leisure and gave birth to the "The Flappers". These free spirited women could be found at the speakesies, a.k.a underground bars where alcohol was served illegally. They were known to have a good time, be carefree, independent and fashion innovators.

1920's flappers

A certain Age is all about that and more. It is a story of emancipation and love affairs, crimes of passion and finding love. Another fantastic book by Beatriz Williams. A great read!
