Overview

For the bright young things of 1929, the beautiful days seem endless, filled with romance and heartbreak, adventure and intrigue, friendship and rivalry.

After a month in New York, Cordelia Grey and Letty Larkspur are small-town girls no longer. Letty will at last chase her Broadway dreams—no matter the cost. Cordelia, still reeling from the death of her father at the hands of the man she thought she loved, is set to honor Darius Grey's legacy?... and take her revenge. Promised to Cordelia's half brother, Charlie Grey, Astrid is caught up in a world of dazzling jewels and glittering nights—and the sparkle is blinding.

A bitter rivalry will ensnare them all in a dangerous feud played out in the speakeasies of Manhattan and the great lawns of Long Island, and for Astrid, Cordelia, and Letty, the stakes could be deadly.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Elaine Gass Hirsch
An airy and glamorous historical novel, Beautiful Days is the second book in a new historical fiction series set at the end of the Roaring Twenties by best-selling author Godbersen. The adventures of Cordelia the heiress, Letty the aspiring starlet, and Astrid the socialite, which began in Bright Young Things (HarperCollins, 2010/VOYA Online October 4, 2011), continue with Cordelia and Letty settling into their new lives after moving to New York from a small town in the Midwest and with Astrid engaged to Cordelia's bootlegger brother, Charlie. With the mansions of Long Island and the speakeasies of New York serving as the backdrop, the book is a romantic escape from reality. Godbersen is the author of a similar and popular series of historical fiction for teens, The Luxe, which is set in nineteenth-century Manhattan. A light yet busy story line with enough character development, description, romance, and intrigue to engage readers, Beautiful Days is recommended for teens who enjoy the privileged Gossip Girl style of series fiction.
