More About This Book

Overview

"The Hat" begins with the brief, chilling murder of the godfather of the Jewish bootlegging world. The killer disappears without a trace and then in flashback we meet Kate Brady who has just been fired from her job at Shapiro's Bakery. With an alcoholic mother and the joblessness of The Great Depression, Kate has little hope for a future until she meets the magnetic bootlegger Ben Gold. After an intense courtship, they marry. Ben's hit man, Sam Ginzberg, and his handsome and decent bookkeeper, Bobby Keane, witness Kate and Ben's wedding. The charged love affair between Bobby and Kate, and their struggle to escape Ben, leads to a startling denouement. Amid the drama of Prohibition, The Great Depression and the birth of the Mafia, the novel ends in suspense, surprise and revelation. Cleveland, Ohio native Babette Rosen Hughes is a bootlegger's daughter whose father and uncle were murdered by the Mafia. Ms. Hughes is the co-author of "Why College Students Fail" and author of the memoir, "Lost And Found." Her published columns, articles and book reviews can be found in the "Saturday Review," Cleveland Plain Dealer," "Cleveland Magazine" and the "Cleveland Press." Babette and her husband are parents and stepparents to eight children and now reside in Austin, Texas. Join the author on Facebook and visit her website: www.babettehughes.com.

    BABETTE HUGHES' "THE HAT" (REVIEW)

    BABETTE HUGHES' "THE HAT" (A REVIEW)

    I cannot say enough about this book and how wonderfully written it is. Babette Hughes is definitely one of my favorite writers as of this moment. From the opening page this book gripped me and I could not put it down. The story of a bootlegger's wife during the 'Great Depression' is riveting and emotionally charged to such a degree that you feel as though you're living it with her. You want so badly to be part of this story, to help her find a way out that it leaves you breathless with anticipation of what will happen to the heroine Kate (Little Red).

    I would definitely recommend this as one of the must-reads to add to your list. You will not be disappointed. I long for the next endeavor Babette Hughes pursues and will be sure to pick up her books from here on out. Do not pass this one up!

    Couldn't get interested

    This book was boring. So boring that I barely got past page 40 before I put it down. This is not a book I normally would buy; I won it in a contest. The characters were not interesting to me at all. The female protaganist was a whiny brat who was ashamed of her alcoholic mother and her Jewish/Catholic roots. That's about all I got from this book. And that she married a Jewish mobster.
