Summary » A Certain Age 102 Ls under the spell of the pretty ingénue even as he uncovers a shocking family secret As the love triangle of Theresa Octavian and Sophie progresses it transforms into a saga of divided loyalties dangerous revelations and surprising twists that will lead to a shocking transgression and eventually force Theresa to make a bittersweet choiceFull of the glamour wit and delicious twists that are the hallmarks of Beatriz Williams’ fiction and alternating between Sophie’s spirited voice and Theresa’s vibrant timbre A Certain Age is a beguiling reinterpretation of Richard Strauss’s comic opera Der Rosenkavalier set against the sweeping decadence of Gatsby’s New Yo. I am always fascinated by well written books that take place during the 1920 s It was an exceptional time between two wars prohibition the old guard and the new struggling to find a way to share the same space Beatriz Williams book exemplifies those times and struggles and in a way that is so real it is almost painful at times There was a point where I almost couldn t bear the fact that some people in this story would not get what they wanted that they would be forever marked or even destroyed in the very intimate battles of the war between the various lovers I wanted them all to win all of the characters drew my empathy for one reason or another Based on a play that I have never seen nor experienced this up dated version of the story with a twist finely woven in should have a film based on it but only if they can find actors who can do justice to the nuances of the characters A great story that I recommend to everyone who enjoys historical fiction that is extremely well written
