Book review

In 1795 New Orleans, the Spanish controlled city struggles to rebuild after two devastating fires, and a young teenage girl is just as determined to leave her past behind and start anew. Celestine, the daughter of a Mississippi River prostitute spends most of her time hating herself, her life and the dirty men who rut with her mama. When she turns thirteen and her mama informs her she’ll be servicing the very men she hates and fears, she has no other option but to run to the good nuns of the Ursulines Convent where for the first time she encounters kindness and a different kind of life. After meeting the dashing ship captain Maurice Dubois, a man with his own past demons to reckon with, Celestine allows herself to be truly loved for the first time. But when a shocking turn of events leaves her once again with nothing more than her own wits to survive, Celestine begins to realize the power her intoxicating beauty gives her over men including the debonair and infamous pirate Jean Lafitte. It’s this very power that Celestine learns to capitalize on to begin a new career...not as the common riverfront lady of the night her mother had been...but as the most sought after courtesan in all of New Orleans. Queenofthenightreviews.com: "With an interesting heroine, several leading men and scintillating dialogue, F.J. Wilson captured my attention and took me back to a different time, when women had no political or legal power and mostly advanced through their wits." "Peak through the keyhole of history into the lives of stunning characters whose love triumphs over adversity..." Bethany Ewald Bultman President and Director New Orleans Musician Assistance Foundation, New Orleans Musicians Clinic and Author: “Reflections of the South”, “Redneck Heaven”, “New Orleans and the Gulf Coast” "I loved this book. I love to visit New Orleans and I never realized how truly colorful her people were in history. I’d like to create Jean Lafitte for the big screen and sit back and watch the audience swoon, only If I could play Celestine… I’m ready to read the whole series…" Sara Parriott, screenwriter, “Runaway Bride”, “Desperate Housewives”, “The Starter Wife” Los Angeles, CA
