9780099516552: Angel of Brooklyn

It is January, 1914 and Jonathan Crane returns home from his travels with a new American bride, former Coney Island showgirl Beatrice. In the remote Lancashire village Beatrice is the focus of attention, the men captivated by her beauty, the women initially charmed by tales of her upbringing in Normal, Illinois with her father, an amateur taxidermist, and her brother, a preacher, although she will take the story of how she became the Angel of Brooklyn to her grave.

But when the men head off to fight in the Great War the glamorous newcomer slowly becomes an object of suspicion and jealousy for the women who are left behind and as the years pass, and their resentment grows, Beatrice's secret proves to be her undoing.

Beautifully observed, tragic, funny and so evocative that you can taste the candy floss at Coney Island and feel the chill of wartime England, Angel of Brooklyn is an extraordinary, heartbreaking story.

Review:

"Jenkins' third novel is set in two real places... but is about the ways in which we imagine the world" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Jenkins' tender narrative voice is well suited to a heroine still innocent enough to see the good in people... It's a tall order to mix American Gothic with gritty Northern realism, but Jenkins likes to keep herself and her readers entertained... This invigorating novel bottles the seasonal delights of both Coney and Morecambe Bay" ( Independent)

"Lighthearted and confident, a bouncy, enjoyable read" ( Observer)

"A joy to read" (John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas)

"Ingenious and gripping" ( Times Literary Supplement)

Book Description:

Acclaimed writer Janette Jenkins brings us an ambitious and tragic tale of love and war, which shows the past can never be forgotten...
