Martha Hall Kelly
April 16, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join us for a very special spring evening at McBirney Mansion with Martha Hall Kelly and her prequel to the bestselling World War II novel, Lilac Girls.
The million-copy bestseller Lilac Girls introduced the real-life heroine Caroline Ferriday. Now Lost Roses, set a generation earlier and also inspired by true events, features Caroline’s mother, Eliza, and follows three equally indomitable women from St. Petersburg to Paris under the shadow of World War I.
From the turbulent streets of St. Petersburg and aristocratic countryside estates to the avenues of Paris where a society of fallen Russian émigrés live to the mansions of Long Island, the lives of Eliza, Sofya, and Varinka will intersect in profound ways. In her newest powerful tale told through female-driven perspectives, Martha Hall Kelly celebrates the unbreakable bonds of women’s friendship, especially during the darkest days of history.
This event is free and open to the public. Copies of Lost Roses are currently available at Magic City Books.
