Duration: 8 hours 46 minutes
Jo, the firstborn, The General to her eleven sisters, is the only thing the Hamilton girls have in place of a mother. She is the one who taught them how to dance, the one who gives the signal each night, as they slip out of their father's townhouse and into cabs that will take them to the speakeasy. Together they elude their controlling father. Meanwhile, they continue to dance, until one night when they are caught in a raid, separated, and Jo is thrust face-to-face with someone from her past: a bootlegger named Tom whom she hasn't seen in almost ten years. Suddenly Jo must weigh in the balance not only the demands of her father and eleven sisters, but those she must make of herself.
"Susie Berneis keeps the energy high...Berneis keeps the girls fresh and alive as they visit speakeasies, flirt with gangsters and reprobates, and dance the night away with men of all stripes." - AudioFile Magazine
