Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal for you today. The Davenports by Krystal Marquis is a new young adult fiction set in turn of the last century Chicago. The Davenports is the first book in a debut duology which gives major Bridgerton romance vibes with an all-Black main cast. This synopsis sounds so intriguing. I am so excited to read this book and cannot wait for it to come out! And can we take a moment to appreciate this beautiful cover? Simply gorgeous.
The year is 1910. The Davenports are one of the few Black families of immense wealth and status in the United States, their fortune made through the hard work and entrepreneurship of William Davenport, a formerly enslaved man who founded the Davenport Carriage Company years ago.
Now, the Davenports live surrounded by servants, crystal chandeliers, and endless parties. This is the story of the Davenport daughters, their maid, and their best friend—Olivia, Helen, Amy-Rose, and Ruby—as the four find their way, and unexpectedly find love, in a rapidly changing country.
Published by Dial Books, The Davenports is set to release on January 31, 2023, and is available for pre-order from all major booksellers. Are you looking forward to reading this book? Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
