Bright Young Things

It’s 1929, and Letty Larkspur and Cordelia Grey have finally escaped their small Midwestern town to chase big dreams and even bigger secrets! And in the glittering metropolis of New York City, they meet Astrid Donal – a flapper who has everything she could ever want, except the one thing Letty and Cordelia can offer: true friendship. During the dizzying summer before the market crash of the Great Depression, on the vast lawns of glamorous Long Island mansions and the blindingly lit stages of Broadway, the three girls will find scandal, intrigue and romance. But how will their fortunes rise and fall, together and apart? The irresistible, sumptuous and scandalous new blockbuster from the author of The Luxe!
