OH YES, IF EVER THERE WAS A PERFECT QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK, IT'S THIS ONE! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
Beloved Unmasked (Cherished One: Book One) by: Brita Addams
reviewed by: Becky
A Tarnished novel
Born to a spiteful prostitute in Storyville, the red-light district in New Orleans, David comes into the world as Picayune, meaning “of little value,” or, as his mother reminds him, “nothing.” In the early 20th century brothels and clubs, his love of music sustains young Pic until a life-changing meeting places him on the road to respectability, and Pic reinvents himself as David Reid.
As David realizes happiness for the first time, conscription forces his friend and first love, Spencer Webb, into the Great War. While he pursues a law degree, letters from Spence connect David to his hopes for the future. After staggering news at war’s end, David must find a way to move forward. Under the tutelage of his benefactor, David’s career prospers, but specters from Storyville threaten all he’s worked so hard to achieve.
I love novels about the early 1900's if they are done right, and boy is this one done right! Brita Addams has done her homework in preparation for this book, and series for that matter, and boy does it show!
We meet sweet Picayune when he is a child and living with his mother (if you can call her that), he gets saved from a beating, one of many, and we hope there is more to life for Picayune!
It turns out with good fortune and hard work, there is much more in life than beatings and brothels for David, as he now calls himself. He makes a name for himself as a lawyer, and rises from nothing to be what his mother never said he would.
We follow David's journey and see him go through many trails, not the least is worry for his friend and first love Spencer who was called up to war. We feel every emotion David does the writing is that good!
When David finally gets his life on track and is happy, someone from his past emerges and tries to take it all away, will they succeed, or will David fight for the happiness he so richly deserves?
I don't do spoilers, but I will tell you that you have got to read this book friends! It is amazing, and you will be wanting the next book right when you finish this one! I can't wait! Thanks Brita, for a novel about a time that is brought to life again in a big way through this story!
