    Another Sunday is an historical novel that takes place in Baltimore at the beginning of the 20th century. The setting reveals the style and charm of old Baltimore with its gas lanterns, horse-drawn carriages, and white marble steps. This is a story of love, dreams, secrets, controlling relationships, and ultimately survival. The main character, Celeste, a vivacious and beautiful teenager, wants all the dreams associated with a romantic and blissful life. Her greed becomes her adversary, causing her to encounter misfortunes, setbacks and heartaches as she seeks love and success. With age and maturity on her side, she becomes less demanding and dependent and more accepting of the hand life has dealt her. As the novel continues, you begin to recognize a change in Celeste’s manipulative personality and notice a gentleness that captures the hearts of those she encounters. Many unexpected turn of events keeps the reader engaged and desiring to know the story’s unfolding. It is easy for the... More > reader to become immersed in the Strauff family dynamics, their emotional pain, their struggles and losses. All these sentiments create emotions, moving the reader to the verge of tears. This novel is complete with the cover photograph of Baltimore’s Mount Vernon Place by the famous Baltimore pictorialist A. Aubrey Bodine. This photograph sets the mood in time, capturing the grace of the early 1900’s. If the reader has Baltimore roots, as I do, this novel will be a treasured walk down memory lane, reminiscing downtown Baltimore and neighborhoods surrounding Mount Vernon’s historic landmarks of grand mansions, churches, institutions, and streets that still map out Baltimore over a hundred years later. This well researched historical novel depicts an era in time. It gives you a glimpse into Baltimore’s existence at the turn of the century, told in the milieu that upholds the age old struggle between love and heartbreak. Written by Cynthia Strauff, Another Sunday is her first historical novel. She is a gifted writer with the ability to engage the reader, providing an escape to an earlier time when life was simpler but relationships were just as complicated. I highly recommend this novel.< Less
