The Once Upon a Book Club Adult Box theme for May 2021 is MADAME MOUSTACHE!
We are so pleased to announce our May Adult Hint – Madame Moustache!
A historical novel inspired by the tumultuous life, times, and loves of America’s first professional croupier of modern-day blackjack, bringing to life an intrepid and entrepreneurial real-life woman who lived on her own terms.
When her whole family dies in a fire in 1849, our main character flees her grief and travels west to reinvent herself in burgeoning San Francisco. Down to her last dollar and facing some unsavory options, she quick-wits her way to a gambling table where she begins to deal vingt-et-un—modern-day blackjack. Word travels fast of this French-speaking, card-playing novelty, and she begins to build a new life for herself.
Finding her way to a new boomtown, she adopts a new name, and opens her very own gambling emporium; a great success, drawing mountain men and fortune seekers from far and wide.
But the boom and bust of the gold rush stops for no one, nor do the challenges of a man’s world and she must continue to fight—for her livelihood, for her self-worth, and most of all, for her legacy.
A gripping and endearing tale, this novel brings to life an intrepid and entrepreneurial female who lived on her own terms. Filled with grasping prose, a classy and quick-witted main character and flawless injections of history, this is beautifully developed tale of emotion and the resilience of women.
Fans of Thelma Adams, Therese Anne Fowler, and Marie Benedict will root for the quick-witted, charming, and self-sufficient Madame Moustache as she paves her way in a man’s world and into the pages of history.
