The Girls at the Kingfisher Club
A NovelBook - 2014
Jo, 'The General' to her eleven sisters, is the only thing the girls have in place of a mother. She is the one who taught them how to dance, the one who gives the signal each night, as they slip out of their father's house and into cabs that will take them to the speakeasy, as they elude their controlling father. When they are caught in a raid and Jo is face-to-face with someone from her past: a bootlegger named Tom whom she hasn't seen in almost ten years. Will Jo think of herself now?
