Giveaway! Modern Girls by Jennifer S. Brown

the 30's

Modern Girls

“In 1935, Dottie Krasinsky is the epitome of the modern girl. A bookkeeper in Midtown Manhattan, Dottie steals kisses from her steady beau, meets her girlfriends for drinks, and eyes the latest fashions. Yet at  heart, she is a dutiful daughter, living with her Yiddish-speaking parents on the Lower East Side. So when, after a single careless night, she finds herself in the family way by a charismatic but unsuitable man, she is desperate; unwed, unsure, and running out of options.”

The above sets the tone for this novel of family and the time leading up to the war. I have one copy for giveaway. Please leave a comment below. Only U.S. addresses, please, and no P.O. boxes. Good luck! I will choose my winner on Monday, April 25.

Once again, I must thank our good friends at New American Library for providing this great new novel for giveway!

  1. It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. Women on the brink of sexual freedom but always the age-old biological reality. My own family history includes life with Yiddish speaking grandparents and the clash of the old world and the new. Add growing fears of war and bad news from families back in the shteltls of Poland and Belarus. This book sounds right up my alley.

  2. Wonderful novel which interests me greatly. The era and the locale all are fascinating. I can relate with the novel since I am Jewish and the book is meaningful and unforgettable. Thanks for this great giveaway.

  3. Modern Girls resonates with me. Being Old School and loving anything written during that time this book would be a treasure to read and cherish. Thanks for this great review and giveaway.

  4. Sounds intriguing…and that was such a tumultuous time in our country’s history. Thanks — can’t wait to read it!
