“As a reader, I was transported to the times that my grandparents lived through. I could use all of my sensory perceptions to feel, smell, taste and touch each character’s journey. I was cleverly allowed to follow the pathways and choices of three women who bared their truths, asking us to be witnesses to their lives. The prohibition era and it’s vast textures with multi-layered details kept me turning pages as the story unfurled in the breeze. I was happy to hitch a ride to Hannah, the Songbird’s star. This book is witty, compelling, and contains the unvarnished truth about life, love, and being human beings. WELL WORTH A READ!!” — Songwriter/Author, Amazon Customer

“The book left such a lasting impression that I could not stop thinking about it for many days after I finished it. The story captured my attention right away and I could not stop reading it. The characters were wonderful and were so real. Reading the book piqued my interest in the early days of the 20th century and how women were perceived and treated. The author truthfully captured what women had to endure back in that period in time. Brentwood’s story made me grateful to live in this generation.” — Decoratorwoman, Amazon Customer
