Pulling from her collection of vintage ephemera, including vintage postcards, magazine ads, ticket stubs, catalog pages, fabric swatches, fashion spreads, menus, and more, Caroline captures the spirit of the 1920s as seen through the eyes of the lovely, spirited, and ambitious Frankie Pratt.

Caroline Preston, who started collecting antique scrapbooks while still in High School, is the author of three previous novels, including "Jackie By Josie", a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, and "Gatsby's Girl". She currently resides in Charlottesville, Virginia.
