READ ☆ A Certain Age 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 charmAs 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 ti. When the girls admire him a young man takes it as a matter of course but when a widow selects him for her attention he thrills with the knowledge that he is being stamped with the approval of a connoisseur Helen RowlandWell Mrs Theresa Marshal 44 is no widow She shares a 5th Avenue residence and a lovely place in Southampton with her very much alive husband Sylvester Octavian Rofrano the 22 year old she often refers to as Boyo manages to prove with some freuency and energy that he is even alive than the senior man in Theresa s life Marshall is goofy for her flyboy Rofrano being late of World War I although a lot less late than most of his fellow pilots She is stuck on him enough to have begun having notions of them taking it on the lam together If only life were so simpleBeatriz Williams from her FB pagesThere is the problem of Sophie Fortescue 19 an heiress to a successful if somewhat reclusive inventor father mom having reached a bad end many years back She is a mechanically inclined chip off the old engine block and an object of extreme affection for Theresa s brother Jay is not as far along in years as his sister but is past his first bloom An erstwhile man about town he is eager to marry young Sophie and secure not only the companionship of a beautiful and vivacious partner but the not insignificant advantage of her considerable inheritance Theresa engages young Rofrano for him to act the cavalier and present young Sophie with Jay s formal reuest for her hand and presumably the rest of her in marriage But seeing Sophie sparks something in young Rofrano Complications ensueWe are introduced to the goings on by a gossip columnist for the New York Herald Times It is May 1922 and nom de plume Patty Cake fills us in on what looks like the crime of the century in Greewich CT a juicy case in which The Patent King is on trial for his life his daughters The Patent Princesses in attendance Ms Cake pops in from time to time to update us on the progress of the trial and to add a third voice enough to help plait the Theresa and Sophie threads into a lovely braid LOVE the uest marriage the conuest divorce the inuest Helen RowlandPatty is a fun element but the star of this show is Theresa Marshall I kept hearing the voice of Lady Mary from Downton Abbey albeit it with an American accent Lest one think of her as maybe too modern a woman it should be borne in mind that the 20s was not called Roaring for nothing It was a time of change Boundaries were being pushed Sophie is considered daring because she wants to work for her living instead of being a prize awarded to the highest bidder Theresa takes advantage of the daring culture of the day to match her philandering mate for a change in partaking of the world Octavian confronts considerable survivor guilt having made it through the vagaries of The Great War while having lost so many of his fellow flyers Everybody seems to be going through life at automobile speed nowadays but alas there are no sentimental garages by Life s wayside at which we may obtain a fresh supply of emotions purchase a new thrill or patch up an exploded ideal Helen RowlandThe title refers not only to the chronological status of Theresa Marshall and the MayDecember couplings of Jay with Sophie and Theresa s hubby with his latest young thing but the times themselves Williams offers a nifty look at the 1920s peppering her novel with elements of the dynamic culture and the odd sign post Ty Cobb and his infamous demeanor are tossed across the stage early on Man O War thunders past in a back story role bringing Octavian and Theresa together That relatively new fangled automotive device comes in for some use as well Here is a nice passage that gives a sense of much of this era capturing The bartender The bar So forbidden and masculine an unimaginable place for a girl to find herself alone until now Until suddenly boys and girls are going to saloons together and they aren t called saloons any A whole new vocabulary is springing up overnight it seems like mushrooms or crocuses all clustered around the underground slaking of illegal thirst and it seems the illegal the thirst is the ordinary and acceptable it s become to slake it in mixed company among strangers And the vocabulary has something to do with that doesn t it Hooch speakeasy blotto Silly words trivializing the laws they re breaking Trivializing everything in the world I love how Williams posilutely picks up the sudden societal unsteadiness that followed the horror of war as the world tried once to regain its balance It is putting her story in the context of a time of great upheaval made manifest in her characters that raises it from a pretty good novel with a sparkling character in Theresa to something higher Love is like appendicitis you never know when nor how it is going to strike you the only difference being that after one attack of appendicitis your curiosity is perfectly satisfied Helen Rowland And if that s not enough you might think it s the bees knees that the story is based on the German opera Der Rosenkavalier The name Octavian Rofrano is lifted whole from that The

mystery element to move things along as the plot of her source material was a bit thin It is no surprise that she finds inspiration in the classics Williams was raised in Ashland Oregon and was exposed early on to a regular diet of Shakespeare and some of the refined forms of public entertainment offered in that notable college town After marriage a woman s sight becomes so keen that she can see right through her husband without looking at him and a man s so dull that he can look right through his wife without seeing her Helen RowlandOne of the truly delightful elements of this novel is that every one of the 27 chapters is introduced by a deliciously cynical well most are anyway uote from Helen Rowland And if the name is unfamiliar you are in good company Rowland wrote a column called Reflections of a Bachelor Girl for The New York World in the early part of the 20th century I have included in EXTRA STUFF a link to the Gutenberg editions of one of her books of collected wit and wisdom A Guide to Men and sprinkled into this review some Rowland uotes taken not from the book under review but from Rowland s opus to give you a taste A Certain Age is a fun read It points out some of the gender issues coming to the fore at the time It notes how possibilities for women in both work and love were constraining and loosening But that is understructure The characters are fun to follow with Theresa standing above the rest and Patty Cake offering some extra spice You may be reminded of A Little Night Music although with fewer jokes The mystery element keeps the story moving
