From turn-of-the-century New Orleans, a city renowned for sin, seduction, and sex, comes a tale of two women inextricably linked by "The District" of Storyville, where prostitution was legal—and flourishing.

Kate—young, beautiful, and abandoned by a man who doesn't love her—finds herself thrown on the mercies of the city. Julia Randsome is a transplanted Yankee, a supporter of women's rights, who against everyone's advice marries into one of the city's most prominent families. Though they occupy different universes in New Orleans, somehow all roads bring Kate and Julia to the same place . . . back to The District.

As lush and provocative as New Orleans is itself, Storyville sweeps across lines of caste and blood, money, and desire—and into the voluptuous secrets of a city tempting as any on earth.

"The novel's atmosphere is redolent of honeysuckle and jasmine, café brûlot and cinnamon buns."—Newsday

From Our Editors

THE WASHINGTON POST calls Lois Battle "a born storyteller". Her novel STORYVILLE describes a ragtime city within a city--the largest, most notorious, and only legal red-light district in the U.S.--where hard cash bought the softest goods. "The novel's atmosphere is redolent of honeysuckle and jasmine, cafe brulot and cinnamon buns".--NEWSDAY
