BOOK REVIEW: Autumn Lady bpy AnneMarie Dapp

Mara McClain is a young Irish immigrant looking to begin anew in Victorian-era San Francisco, after the California Gold Rush. She struggles for both love and independence, as a budding businesswoman in a male-dominated society.  Set amid the fascinating backdrop of San Francisco’s Golden Age, Autumn Lady draws from an eclectic cast of characters, both historical and original. It’s an idiosyncratic journey through the highs and lows, ballrooms and back rooms, alleys and the promenades, and the enchantment and viciousness, of an American city on the brink of a new era.  Autumn Lady is not just the story of Mara McClain, it is the story of both a woman and a city coming of age in one of America’s most exciting historical periods. In all honesty, historical romance is usually not my thing. This book was gifted to at an event and was quite surprised. Dapp created a world you’d gladly jump into. Emotions range the spectrum and you feel what the

Dread filled her as the presence grew near. The forest thick, making progress slow as her body scraped against the brush trying to hold on to her, to keep her from running.  A large oak tree stood only yards away, but her dress had snagged on some briars and did all it could to maintain its hold on her there. The cotton gown twisted into the thorns and tore as she pulled herself free to find safety behind the giant oak. Her breath struggled to come to her
