Sunday Review: So Much More by Janet Gibbs

Three young women live in Morristown, New Jersey in 1902, the home of more millionaires than Newport.

Alice Hastings is an accomplished painter but her devoted, widowed father insists she marry a young man from town.

Francesca Dunbar has a secret which she longs to tell. Her parents spoil their only child and keep their past hidden lest it shake up this small conservative town.

Claire Armstrong is headstrong and opinionated and comes from a boisterous family of daughters. Her father is intent on having at least one of them marry well, but Claire has other ideas.

The arrival of Sir William Barrett, a charming English aristocrat adds to the confusion of these three women. Alice’s childhood friend, Richard Dickerson, is at a loss to declare his love since he loves another. Alice, Claire and Francesca take different paths to happiness and so much more.


This was a refreshing break from the typical stories I have been reading. I always enjoy a good period piece and this one seemed like it had a lot of research done in order to bring out very believable characters. The writing was easy to read and the plot was solid. It is always good when you read a new author and find their work so enjoying you want to pick up the next book.

This was a solid 4 stars. A good read for a nice quiet weekend.
