The Parlor House Daughter is Joanne Sundell's third historical romance with Five Star. This time Joanne brings to life the sometimes glamorous, oftentimes dangerous, yet always uncertain world of prostitution as it existed in 1880 Denver. Just as she explored the lives of an immigrant doctor (Matchmaker, Matchmaker), then a deaf printer and illustrator (A...My Name's Amelia), in her previous historical romances set in Colorado, she has turned our focus this time on Rebecca Rose, bound by birth to life "on the line."
We know that prostitutes helped settle the West. We know they softened the West. We know many of the famous and infamous. But what is it we don't know? It is this question--this exploration--that awaits you in The Parlor House Daughter.
Joanne lives with her husband and their entourage of felines and huskies in Grand County, Colorado.
