Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
In the glitz and glamor tradition of Beatriz Williams's Tiny Little Thing and Fiona Davis's The Chelsea Girls , Danielle Martin's debut novel features a dress boutique turned underground women's social club where women from all walks of life come for support and sisterhood. <br> <br> 1962. In the middle of Brooklyn Heights sits the Starlite- boutique dress shop by day, underground women's club by night. Started by the shop's proprietor after her councilman ex-husband Fred Abbott ruined her reputation, Madeline's social club soon becomes a safe haven for women from all walks of life looking for a respite from their troubled relationships and professional frustrations. These after-hour soirees soon bring two very different women into Madeline's life--Elaine, a British ex-pat struggling to save her marriage, and Lisa, a young stewardess whose plans for the future are suddenly upended--irrevocably changing all three women's lives in ways no one could have predicted.<br> <br> But when Madeline's ne'er-do-well ex-husband shows up again, the luster of Starlite quickly dampens. As the sisterhood rallies around Madeline, tension begins to eat at the club. When an unspeakable tragedy befalls their sorority, one woman must decide whether to hide the truth from the group or jeopardize her own hopes and dreams. Sure to appeal to readers of Kathleen Tessaro and Suzanne Rindell, Glimmer As You Can captures the heartbeat of an era and the ambitions of a generation of women living in a man's world--a world threatened by a wave of change.
Operating a secret women's club in her 1962 Brooklyn Heights boutique, Madeline bonds with a British ex-pat struggling to save her troubled marriage and a young stewardess whose future plans have been irrevocably upended.
