Astor PlacVintage

by Stephanie Lehmann (published June 11, 2013)

 

 

Astor Place Vintage is set in both past and present day New York City. In this book you will meet Amanda, a vintage clothing store owner and Olive, who wishes to become a buyer in a department store in the year 1907. The story goes back and forth between both women and their struggles.

Olive has to deal with women rights issues along with a life changing event that will force her to find her voice and strength. Amanda has to deal with her own questionable choice of boyfriend and what does this choice has to do with her past, also her vintage clothing store may go through a change.

Amanda starts to question some of her choices when she finds a journal, written by Olive from 1907, in the pocket of a vintage piece of clothing.

Get a picture of what New York City was like in the beginning of the 1900's, this book actually has pictures circa 1907. Meet Amanda, Olive and their friends. Find out how different but yet similar their lives were.

This author does a superb job of making the stories of these women blend together! I look forward to reading more from Stephanie Lehmann!
