Product description

Hotter than fever. Immortal love on a mortal stage. Love vs Death in Seattle’s smoky 1920s jazz clubs. Fallen with sax solos and diamonds. What if Love was a person? What if Death was? In 1920s Seattle, a black girl and a white boy play out two fated roles. Flora and Henry were born a few blocks apart. Their love of music unites them. Their colour drives them apart. How could they know they are pawns in an immortal game played by eternal adversaries? Star-crossed love amid the wild spirit of the Jazz Age: dance clubs, airfields, rum on ice, shiny cars and racial struggles. All with a dramatic supernatural twist. So beautiful the author of Code Name Verity wished she had written it. (We know how she feels.)

“So beautiful I wish I’d written it myself.” Elizabeth Wein

“Impossible to put down, I read this book with my heart in my throat.” Judy Blundell

This book contains mature content.
