About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Equal parts mystery and moxie, this book uncovers secrets and relives the bygone times when Prohibition and women’s suffrage opened doors of unexpected opportunities. From a beginning in Cork, Ireland, to the burgeoning New Jersey Oranges' society, to a rousing finale in Atlantic City during the infamous gangsters’ convention of 1929, Kitty Dodd sets in motion events that will affect the family’s fortune for generations to come. In The Spirited Ladies of Liberty Street, the authors will leave it to their readers to decide if its salubrious contents should be shaken or stirred.
