The Last Dance of the Debutante

I picked up The Last Dance of the Debutante by Julia Kelly when I made a stop at Barnes and Noble while my husband was at a doctor’s appointment. I dropped him off and headed to the bookstore down the street.

I read The Last Garden In England by Julia Kelly earlier this year and enjoyed it. I did not know that she had a new book out, but when I saw it in the new release section at Barnes and Noble I knew that I had to get it.

I loved this book! The reason that I loved it was because I learned so much. This book took me to 1950s England and the world of debutantes. I have read a lot of WWII fiction set in England, but I have not read a lot of other historical fiction set in England. I don’t think I have read anything about the debutante world.

The Last Dance of the Debutante is about one of the last seasons of the debutantes. The world was changing. Women wanted to go to college and they wanted careers. They didn’t want to rush into marriage and family. The War had changed things and the world of the debutantes didn’t make as much sense anymore.

Since this is historical fiction this story also includes love, mystery, a family secret, and more.

If you love historical fiction, especially stories that are a little different, this is a good one. Julia Kelly has become one of my auto-buy authors.
