Love and Other Consolation Prizes  by Jamie Ford (Netgalley/St.Martin’s Press)

Book Description…

A powerful novel about an orphan boy who is raffled off at Seattle’s 1909 World Fair, and the friends who teach him what it really means to have a family, from the author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet.

Inspired by a true story, this is the unforgettable story of a young boy named Ernest, set during the 1909 Seattle world’s fair called the Alaska Yukon Pacific Expo. It is a time when the magical wonders of technology on display at the expo future seems limitless. But for Ernest, a half-Chinese orphan who found his way to America through a last desperate act of his beloved mother, every door is closed. A charity student at a boarding school, he has never really had a place to call home. Then one day, his wealthy sponsor announces that if a home is what he wants, then that is what he will have: Ernest will be offered as a prize in the daily raffle at the fair, advertised as “Healthy boy to a good home for the winning ticket holder.” The woman who “wins” him is the madam of a notorious brothel who was famous for educating her girls. He becomes a houseboy in her brothel and is befriended by the daughter of the madam, as well as a Japanese girl who works in the kitchen. The friendship and love between these three form the first real family Ernest has ever known.

*I am really looking forward to reading this!  Something different from the usual thrillers and mysteries that I love to read.  It was inspired by a true story and I find it crazy that an orphan could be “raffled” off and won by a family.

  1. I hope you enjoy your first Scottoline book!! I’ve been reading her books since they were published in the mid90s and still love her! I read Exposed last month and my review will be posted July 17th, so I’m excited about that! I think it’s one of her best books in the Rosato and DiNunzio series, so it’s a good one to introduce you to her writing. Happy Reading!!

  3. I really like the sound of both books. Historical Fiction is one of my favourite genres so the second book really appeals to me. I have read one by by Scottoline and it was great. I didn’t know that she had written a legal thriller(another genre that I like). I hope that you will enjoy both books.
