Fallen Beauty by Ericka Robuck Blog Tour and GiveAway

Edna St. Vincent Millay

Fallen Beaut

FALLEN BEAUTY, by Erika Robuck, is a sight for sore eyes as well as a feast for the senses.

Robuck has decided to take on the scandalous life of the Bohemian poet Edna St. Vincent Millay.  In all her glory; with all her wild/child ways. She has captured Millay perfectly.Blog Tour

FALLEN BEAUTY begins in the winter of 1928, in a small town in upstate New York. Laura Kelley has been living a sheltered life until now.  She’s preparing for a night to remember. She’s dressed to kill. Tosses on her rope of pearls, and sneaks out to meet her lover. A man who is oh-so-wrong for her. He’s taking her to see the Ziegfeld Follies; something scandalous back in the day.  Laura’s feeling quite intoxicated, not only from the rum drinks being mixed on the trunk of his car, but from the anxiety and guilt about what she’s actually in the throws of.  Little does she know that this night is going to change her life forever.

This same night, Edna St. Vincent Millay and her husband are throwing a wild party at their home in the mountains nearby. Edna is intent on loving her husband to death, or almost. She is bored now and since he has given it his all, she is intent on finding someone fresh, new and more exciting. Strangely enough, the husband has agreed.

Two years later Laura is an unwed woman with a small child, eking out a living as a seamstress.  Edna hires her to make luscious costumes for her shows, secretly. For Laura to be seen with Edna is certain shunning in her small town. And thus, this most unusual friendship commences. Let it be said that opposites attract. And two more opposites do not exist.

The period clothing, the stunning jewelry, and the intricate sewing crackle with authenticity that make for a perfect sense of place.  And you will want to seek out the sonnets of Edna St. Vincent Millay and enjoy the  luscious prose.

Both women have become fallen women. But in their own ways. Laura, once an innocent, fell in love with the wrong man. Edna, a wild child, needed to be loved and adored above everything else.  But all in excess. They were both beautiful, both talented, and both lost. Who will overcome?
