I have been a fan of Erika Robuck since her first book, Hemingway’s Girl.
Fallen Beauty weaves together the stories of Edna St. Vincent Millay, a poet a completely adore, and Laura, a seamstress. Both women are battling their own thoughts and hearts. Both women are looking for love, but don’t feel as if they deserve it.
One thing that draws me in to Robuck’s stories every time is the way she writes her characters. They are believable, real, and have depth. You care for them. You love them. Laura and Vincent, as Millay prefers to be called, are no exception.
This is one of those novels that you don’t just read. It transports you to another time and place. The language and imagery just spin you through the story until you reach the end. Too soon.
I honestly can not recommend Robuck’s books enough.
