When her jazzing flapper of an aunt dies, Gerardina Mary Chiledexter inherits some silver-topped scent bottles, a wardrobe of love-affair clothes, and astonishingly, a half-share in a million-acre ranch in south-west Texas.
Haunted by a psychic cat and the ghost voice of her aunt, Leonie, Gerry feels driven to travel thousands of miles to see the ranch for herself.
Against a background of big sky, cattle barons and oil wells, she is soon engaged in a game of power and pride with the Texan who owns the other half.
“With a fresh and original plot she takes her readers on a journey from a quiet English village to the wide plains of Texas. Her descriptions are so vivid that I could almost taste the dust.”
“The evocation of the 20’s era, the rain-soaked English countryside contrasting with sun-baked Texas, is spot on. The 20’s Girl, the ghost, and all that jazz is a love story beautifully told.”
