“Kathleen Tessaro writes beautifully.”

—Marian Keyes, author of This Charming Man

 

She brought us Elegance, Innocence, and The Flirt—and now the exceptional Kathleen Tessaro takes contemporary women’s fiction to new heights with The Debutante. The story of a troubled New York artist transplanted to London, where she gets drawn into the strange, secret history of a notorious debutante from the previous century, Tessaro’s novel is a mystery combined with a love story within a poignant tale of a modern young woman’s self-discovery—and readers of Jane Green, Anna Maxted, and Marian Keyes will take it deep into their hearts.

From the Back Cover:

Can the secrets of one woman's past change another woman's future?

A gifted artist, Cate has come to London from New York to escape her recent past. Working for her aunt's auction house, she is sent down to Devon to value the contents of Endsleigh House, the once gracious but now crumbling estate of a former socialite. There, hidden in the back of a dusty bookshelf, Cate discovers an old shoebox. Inside is a strange assortment of objects: an exquisite pair of dancing shoes circa 1930; a diamond brooch; a photograph of a young sailor; a dance card; and a pearl and emerald Tiffanys bracelet.

Intrigued by her find, Cate sets out to solve the mystery of the box, becoming immersed in the story of its owner, Baby Blythe. Bright, beautiful, and reckless, Baby was the most famous debutante of her generation . . . and the most dangerous. As the clues begin to reveal a shocking tale of destructive, addictive love, Cate finds herself being drawn deeper into Baby's tragic life story—a story that will force Cate to face some dark truths about her own.
