Overview

Speakeasies.

Gangsters.

Flappers.

In 1918, Kansas City WAS Sin City!

Forced to leave home at age fourteen, beautiful Hannah Glidden struggles to survive, but with help from her childhood friend, Meg, mistress to a wealthy married man and her roommate, the irrepressible, flapper extraordinaire, Rosie, she thrives as a cabaret singer.

The early 20’s roared. Fortunes were made or lost in a single night, and criminals mingled with kings. Neither the government nor Prohibition could stop the flow of alcohol or the lure of the “good life.” Handsome rum runner Johnny Gallo is part of New York's large, growing criminal empire where the sky is the limit. The ruthless Gallo has a knack for knowing the right people, and a single-minded devotion to getting what he wants. And, he wants Hannah.

Hannah goes with Johnny to Al Capone’s Chicago and eventually to Brooklyn, New York where she basks in the glamorous shadow world of gangsters and their gals. Johnny becomes a force to be reckoned with, but in time the free-spirited Hannah clashes with her controlling lover.

She faces the dark side of her dreams but dares to defy Johnny despite the dangers and unwittingly discovers that for her, dying just might be the only true path to freedom after all.

About the Author

Anna (which is her real first name) was a bookworm almost since birth. She graduated from Philadelphia's University of the Arts and pursued a versatile career in graphic arts, publications and public relations in Southern California before being lured to the Oregon wilderness by her desire to write professionally and her former Navy Seal husband. Anna's debut novel, 'The Songbird with Sapphire Eyes' first began as a series of dreams that so haunted her they became a personal quest to explore possible past life memories. The journey was both eerie and exciting and the book has since spawned the current Sapphire Songbird series. A wife, mother and doting "nany" of two, Anna and her husband live on 43 wooded acres in one of Oregon's enchanted forests. Their log home contains an interesting collection of Western, Native, Flapper and Prohibition memorabilia and an animal menagerie that has included dogs, cats, horses, donkeys, wolves, hawks and a feisty but lovable African grey parrot named Warlock.
