Orphaned as an infant, Oklahoma heiress Adelaide Fitzgerald has enjoyed every advantage. She possesses a unique gift for music and has excelled on the opera stage in Italy. As a philanthropist, she’s adored from America to Europe. But Miss Adelaide is about to awaken in a 1918 nightmare. The Great War—and the Great Influenza—knock, and Adelaide finds her uninvited guests more than unwelcome. They threaten her life and alter her identity and purpose. Snatched from a quiet life in an Italian villa, Miss Adelaide is thrust into conflicts others have created. What battle scars will she sustain? And where will love lead her? In The Awakening of Miss Adelaide, war and peace, laughter and heartache, love and loss come together to ignite a fresh fire that reveals one woman’s hidden needs and potentials. What will gaining a fresh understanding of herself require of the Angel of the Opera?

Amazon: The Awakening of Miss Adelaide
Set during World War onerhis book follows a lady who dreamed of being in the Opera but then the war happened and everything changed. I thought this book was all right.. It was a little slow in some parts of the story and I had a hard time keeping my attention. I didn’t expect this plot twist so that helped keep my interest. A lot of things where happening in the world at that time. World War One & suffergette so I enjoyed learning about that.
Adelaide was an interesting person to get to know. I liked her determination.
I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest opinion. All thoughts are my own.
I recommend this book to my friends.
