We meet Vera who lives with her father who has some medical issues . She’s about to meet her friend, Angelo. She thinks that Angelo will ask her to marry him but instead she’s meeting his fiancée, Pearl. Angelo thinks of Vera as a little sister due to the death of his little sister, Stephania who at age 5 drowned in a current at Brighton Beach. Pearl asks Vera to lunch to nanny for her son, William as she continues to stump for women's right to vote
This was my first book of Ms. Demaio’s but by far, it's her BEST BOOK. The characters will stay with me for quite a bit. i loved all the characters especially Angelo, Pearl, Vera and William.
