The Beauty

Authored by Gloria Nagy
Edition: 2nd

John Duckworth, part Yankee aristocrat and part “wharf rat” Irishman, cares for only four things in life: his emotionally fragile sister Faith; her precocious daughter Penelope; his feisty Irish grandmother; and Newport, Rhode Island, his hometown. But New York City is also the setting for Gloria Nagy’s novel; a city of hypocrisy, arrogance and greed—and when a new life beckons for John and Faith on Cape Cod, they jump at the chance, having no idea there is a giant curve ball awaiting them. Jasmine Jones, a beauty beyond compare who walks into their dream and doesn’t leave until their lives and loved ones are utterly destroyed. The Beauty is a novel of this moment with the feel of yesterday’s noir, and Nagy captures it perfectly with her trademark style and wit.
