Redesigning Emma transports us to the turn of the last century, when Five Points gang leader Paul Kelly held sway with the criminal element, Emily Post hosted the absurdly wealthy, and the mentally ill were shuttled into archaic asylums. This novel brings an entire era to life. Most vividly it shows us the world of one visionary milliner on Manhattan’s Ladies’ Mile—a spunky, generous-hearted young woman who is torn between her desire for success, her involvement with the 1899 newsboys’ strike and two very intriguing men.
