A Certain Age: A Novel | Beatriz Williams
128 posts | 93 read | 3 reading | 115 to read
The bestselling author of A Hundred Summers brings the Roaring Twenties brilliantly to life in this enchanting and compulsively readable tale of intrigue, romance, and scandal in New York Society, brimming with lush atmosphere, striking characters, and irresistible charm. As the freedom of the Jazz Age transforms New York City, the iridescent Mrs. Theresa Marshall of Fifth Avenue and Southampton, Long Island, has done the unthinkable: she’s fallen in love with her young paramour, Captain Octavian Rofrano, a handsome aviator and hero of the Great War. An intense and deeply honorable man, Octavian is devoted to the beautiful socialite of a certain age and wants to marry her. While times are changing and she does adore the Boy, divorce for a woman of Theresa’s wealth and social standing is out of the question, and there is no need; she has an understanding with Sylvo, her generous and well-respected philanderer husband. But their relationship subtly shifts when her bachelor brother, Ox, decides to tie the knot with the sweet younger daughter of a newly wealthy inventor. Engaging a longstanding family tradition, Theresa enlists the Boy to act as her brother’s cavalier, presenting the family’s diamond rose ring to Ox’s intended, Miss Sophie Fortescue—and to check into the background of the little-known Fortescue family. When Octavian meets Sophie, he falls 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 choice. Full 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 York.

Meh. The story was entertaining, but there were few surprises; I anticipated most of the major events and twists. I writing was okay. The characters were not as well developed as I would have liked. It was an easy read though, and I got through it quickly once I was dedicated to finishing it.

This is my second book by Beatriz Williams, and I believe I will go on to read more of her work. While I did not like this one as well as Summer Wives, I did enjoy the story and watching the mystery unfold. At times I found the character of Theresa Marshall a little too campy, but it did not distract too much. What I really like about this author is that she is a good writer. The words flow and are pleasing, and she uses elevated vocabulary.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I love to see people reading her books even if it wasn‘t your favorite! I love them all!! ❤️❤️ 9mo

Well, I don‘t even know where to begin. I‘m not sure this one did much for me. The font used in the journalistic sections was very difficult for me to read. The device of skipping back and forth in time felt forced. All of this left me feeling very distracted. That said, I enjoyed immensely the descriptions of the architecture and fashion in the time period. And I always like an author who breaks the fourth wall. I‘ll try again.

SledgeReader Oy. I keep thinking I should have connected better with this one. 😢 12mo

It‘s a good thing I don‘t work all summer. I wouldn‘t have time! Add to that all of my print books are packed in boxes, so I‘m limited to what‘s on my Kindle.

Mehso-so

I am a HUGE Beatriz Williams fan. But this book wasn‘t one of my favourites. I think flipping between narrators never let me get into the groove of the story. I do like how characters from other novels make appearances, but I did have to look up a Schuyler sisters family tree so that I could figure out what books everyone was from (I haven‘t read a Beatriz Williams book in over a year, which is maybe why I struggled with this one?)
