We Came Here to Shine (by Susie Orman Schnall) … historical fiction from the early 20th century

This was a different focus of historical fiction than I typically read.  It was interested to see how female actresses and journalists struggled against the male-oriented mindset in that time period (early 20th century).  The author does a great job of describing the synchronized swimming specifically and the World’s Fair overall.  Interesting read that would appeal to those who appreciate well-researched historical fiction.

Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Griffin for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
