A reimagining of the Twelve Dancing Princesses as flappers during the Roaring Twenties in Manhattan.
“Delightful and suspenseful by turns, this story of tyranny, pluck, fierce love and even fiercer responsibility is set in a New York of spangles and speakeasies, fox-trots and Charlestons. Valentine retains the shimmer and shadows of the fairytale that underlies her novel, even as she transforms it.” - Christina Schwarz, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Drowning Ruth
