Book Review: Gilding Lily by Tatiana Boncompagni

Posted on: March 4, 2009

Lily is a fish out of water in New York society, with a witch of a mother-in-law, a distant husband, and an infant son. I’ve read many stories with this same kind of premise, and while this was not groundbreaking by any means, it was well written and the story moved quickly.

I did get tired of Lily not standing up for herself; she seemed so weak much of the time. But she does eventually grow a spine, and the book has a satisfying ending.

An enjoyable first novel. I’ll be looking for this author’s next work.
