Synopsis

The stars are infallible; one’s true destiny cannot be altered. Or can it?

A descendant of presidents John and John Quincy Adams, and the black sheep of her family, astrologer Evangeline Adams flees provincial Boston in 1899 to launch her business in New York City. On the train ride, she casts her own horoscopic chart. Her findings–death on November 10, 1932 and an unusual intimate union–alarm her. Soon after, she meets actress and suffragist Emma Sheridan-Fry, and she spends the rest of her life torn between society’s restrictions and the trail-blazing nature that made her one of the most prominent female businesswomen of her time.

Peopled with real historical figures, including J.P. Morgan, King Edward VII, Enrico Caruso, Rudolph Valentino, Charles Schwab, Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Sheridan-Fry (who was known to have been a “companion” of Evangeline’s) and occult figure Aleister Crowley, Evangeline The Seer of Wall St. immerses readers in a New York populated with the Wall Street wealthy and the downtrodden, all of whom visited Evangeline’s Carnegie Hall office.

Review

FourStars

A very well written book, written in such a way you were transported back in time and felt you were living the with the characters.
With the use of topical events and society gossip of the time the author regaled a tale of life as a single woman in her quest for love, respect and belief in her work.
Evangeline’s life was accurately documented through true historical events  and the authors clever use of diction and obvious research. The ending like the novel was as complex as it was natural.
Quite a unique with a very distinctive twist.
