Fairytales are Fragile, by Cindy Ladage
In 1939, when the threat of war drifts over Vienna, young Ilyana Verner sails across the Atlantic to emigrate to the US. She and her mother plan to join relatives in Chicago, but a shipboard romance changes things.
As her mother re-marries, Ilyana finds herself torn between two men—the unabashed pursuit of rough and wild Connie O’Brien, and the subdued attentions of Andy Henry, a serious-minded student at Harvard Law.
A night of passion under a San Francisco moon changes everything—and now a child must be considered. How will Ilyana choose between the man she loves and the one who laid claim to her?
