From turn-of-the-century New Orleans, a city renowned for sin, seduction, and sex, comes a tale of two women inextricably linked by “the District” of Storyville, where prostitution was legal—and flourishing. Kate—young, beautiful, and abandoned by a man who doesn’t love her—finds herself thrown on the mercies of the city. Julia Randsome is a transplanted Yankee, a supporter of women’s rights, who against everyone’s advice marries into one of the city’s most prominent families. Though they occupy different universes in New Orleans, somehow all roads bring Kate and Julia to the same place…back to the District. As lush and provocative as New Orleans is itself, Storyville sweeps across lines of caste and blood, money and desire—and into the voluptuous secrets of a city as tempting as any on earth. “Lois Battle is a born storyteller.”—The Washington Post “Storyville comes to lurid life.”—Kirkus Reviews
Lois Battle (1940-2014) is the New York Times-bestselling author of seven novels include Bed and Breakfast, Storyville, War Brides, and A Habit of the Blood. She was a proud resident of Beaufort, South Carolina, where she was known as a beloved champion of the arts.
