If you could live during any time period, where would you choose? I definitely would choose the 1920s. The main character of Tiffany Blues, Jenny Bell, lives in New York in 1924.
She is studying to be an artist. She’s poor but she has a very wealthy roommate, Minx. If only we could all be so lucky to live with someone that supports our art and lets us borrow dresses to wear to dinner parties and speakeasies.
Unbeknownst to Jenny, Minx applies for both of them to attend an exclusive artist workshop at Laurelton Hall, which was owned by Louis Comfort Tiffany. It would have been a dream come true to be accepted and attend. I know it’s a fictional story but I felt really happy for Jenny. Things in her life were turning around for the better. She has some secrets from her past that she was about to put behind her. Jenny falls in love with Oliver, the grandson of Mr. Tiffany.
Then an event changes all of that. I won’t tell you what it is but you probably won’t see it coming. Jenny and Minx are sent away to Paris almost in disgrace. I’m not sure if that’s really a punishment. If I do something disgraceful, will somebody please send me to Paris?
Tiffany Blues does remain true to the story of Laurelton Hall and Louis Comfort Tiffany. The book also has enough mystery to keep the reader intrigued. If you like books with a bit of mystery and a few historical facts, then you will probably enjoy this book.
