Cartier’s Hope does a fine job transporting the reader to New York City, 1910 where the wealthy live charmed lives filled with jewels, high-fashion and culture while the poor immigrants are subjected to sub-human work and living conditions. Vera Garland, a woman ahead of her time, rebels against her high society upbringing seeking greater meaning as a journalist exposing injustices. After discovering a family secret, she uses the public’s fascination with Cartier’s newly acquired Hope Diamond to help in her quest for revenge. This was an enjoyable read which should captivate fans of historical fiction and lovers of old New York.
