Blythe of the Gates
by Leah Erickson
Genre: Historical Fiction
Can the gates of perception be bypassed?

A rash love affair with a member of the Irish Mafia catapults Luna

Mulkerrins into scandal, murder, scorn and decadent friendships in

Ragtime Manhattan. Escaping from the blaze of publicity, a new Luna

emerges: Blythe of the Seven Gates. Her meteoric rise as a magician

leads to fame, vaudeville, silent movies and the notoriety of a

damaging court case. Can Luna reclaim her reputation and reinvent

herself as an independent woman of the time?
