Spotlight for The Secret Life of Mrs London by Rebecca Rosenberg

Okay, so before I begin a book spotlight for THE SECRET LIFE OF MRS. LONDON by Rebecca Rosenberg, let me first give a link to my review: CLICK HERE and then briefly talk about my impressions of the book. 

Probably like most readers, I only knew of Jack London through his CALL OF THE WILD and WHITE FANG fame. I had no sense nor idea of him as a person, and I also knew almost next to nothing about Harry Houdini. While both men are covered well, it is their wives  and the friendship that they have that truly shine in the book. I can guarantee that this is a book that will long stay with you and you won't look at either the wives nor Houdini nor London the same way again. 

THE SECRET LIFE OF MRS. LONDON
San Francisco, 1915. As America teeters on the brink of world war, Charmian and her husband, famed novelist Jack London, wrestle with genius and desire, politics and marital competitiveness. Charmian longs to be viewed as an equal partner who put her own career on hold to support her husband, but Jack doesn’t see it that way…until Charmian is pulled from the audience during a magic show by escape artist Harry Houdini, a man enmeshed in his own complicated marriage. Suddenly, charmed by the attention Houdini pays her and entranced by his sexual magnetism, Charmian’s eyes open to a world of possibilities that could be her escape.
As Charmian grapples with her urge to explore the forbidden, Jack’s increasingly reckless behavior threatens her dedication. Now torn between two of history’s most mysterious and charismatic figures, she must find the courage to forge her own path, even as she fears the loss of everything she holds dear.
