review 1: I really enjoyed this book (and the historic photos accompanying each chapter, too) but only gave it three stars because I was disappointed with the way the story ended. The author introduces us to the main character, and others who influence the story, but then suddenly ends the story shortly after she becomes the Madame of her own house. We're told earlier in the book that she eventually becomes New Orleans most infamous madams, and crushes her competitors, yet the readers are left wondering how she accomplishes this great rise to fame. The ending was so abrupt that I actually thought my ebook edition was missing the final half of the book and was disappointed when I realized it was not. Maybe the author would consider a sequel: I would certainly appreciate... more one.
review 2: Such a fun book. They took a lot of artistic license, but that particular era of New Orleans history is so great. The storyline follows a young prostitute from poverty and a realllly depressing sounding "crib" to being in the right place at the right time - and having a lot of guts - to become the madam of big house in the famous Storyville section of New Orleans. Her story is the framework wherein you learn about the creation of Storyville and the politics behind all of it. less
