by Marie Silk
Davenport House Prequel
Publication date: April 21st, 2017
Genres: Historical, Young Adult
The family saga begins in Debutante, a prequel to the best-selling Davenport House series. A life of luxury for the Davenports means drudgery for the servants on the grand country estate. This is their story in 1909 America, six years prior to the events of book one.
While her father is away on business, sixteen-year-old Mary Davenport feels confined and alone, despite her privileged life at the family’s mansion. As the day of Mary’s debutante ball draws near, the servants are conflicted by instructions from Mary’s mother to starve her until she fits into a gown that was made too small. Mary is also under pressure to act the part of society while being forbidden from seeing her only friend, the servant boy who works in the stable.
In a shantytown hours away, a young girl called Abigail is hired to sew a gown for a dressmaker’s wealthy patron. Abigail gives up her education in order to provide for her impoverished family. Neither she nor Mary is aware of how connected their futures are destined to become.
Debutante is available in ebook format and the whole series is ON SALE until April 27th to celebrate Debutante’s release =D
I’m in love. Like, REALLY IN LOVE. I’m a sucker for historical covers, but this one has it all: the technical aspects and the emotion. The model is great, the gown is swoon-worthy, the background is mysterious and quite decadent in its luxury, the atmosphere is of hope among the darkness. I loved the effect in the golden writings and the styling of the series name. I’ll even forgive that the series title is bigger than the book’s title BECAUSE THIS IS SO PRETTY. I CAN’T WITH THIS COVER, THIS PANDA IS SWOONING. SEND HELP.
