More like a 3.5 stars. I absolutely loved the setting and the characters. The book started off really strong but then towards the middle started to drag for me. I actually put it aside for a bit and then came back to it. It was strong enough for a first book that I will read the next one.

A grand historical novel set in Harlem, NY, and Portland, OR, in the early 20th century, amid Italian immigrant communities coping with the tyranny of their own brutal criminal element, and a black hotel in the heart of a state where people of color were forbidden to live. Our heroine, Alice James (or "Nobody", as she often refers to herself) has escaped with her life, barely, from a Mafia war set in motion by people she loved. Through the insight and compassion of a Pullman porter she has landed at the Paragon Hotel, a refuge for black travelers with a no-damned-nonsense matron who isn't keen on the presence of a white woman in their midst. When a young boy goes missing from the hotel, Nobody uses her talent of disappearing in plain sight to assist the search, and finds herself enmeshed in more than one tangled and mysterious web of relationships. Recommended.… (lisätietoja)

I loved this book. Having never read Jane Eyre, nor having any desire to, this was still a great read. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading more by Mrs. Faye.
