This book really took off! Set in one of my favorite times, Beautiful Days is great read. What I enjoyed most about this book is the plot. Cordelia, Letty, Astrid lives have taken some unexpected turns. I like that in this book the reader still gets each point of view from the girls. Being in their shoes is fantastic. I enjoyed the parties, the clothes, and also the music. All of the girls face some hard times in the book. There is also something that starts to form, a woman's movement. Women are becoming more independent. I like that the story is also integrated with real history. It has so many aspects of what it is like to live in that era it's like your really there. The love interest for each women played out as expected. Cordelia is learning more about her father and his company that he left heir to her. She is also learning more secrets about her brother and her love of her life. Letty is sort of hanging in the midst. The reader doesn't see much of her. She is great help to Cord and Astrid. And Astrid. This girl got in to so much trouble! Her love is strong but trust has not been built. I am glad though near the end, she learns to trust him. Beautiful Days takes one a whole new meaning of beautiful. Striking and highly entertaining, Beautiful Days is moving. The vibrant city and speak easy clubs, it's no wonder it beautiful.
