Historical Happy Hour: Nicola Harrison
My guest for this Historical Happy Hour is Nicola Harrison to discuss her new novel, The Show Girl.

Nicola Harrison's The Show Girl gives a glimpse of the glamorous world of the Ziegfeld Follies through the eyes of a young midwestern woman who comes to New York City to find her destiny as a Ziegfeld Follies star.

It's 1927 when Olive McCormick moves from Minneapolis to New York City determined to become a star in the Ziegfeld Follies. Extremely talented as a singer and dancer, it takes every bit of perseverance to finally make it on stage. And once she does, all the glamour and excitement is everything she imagined and more - even worth all the sacrifices she has had to make along the way.

Then she meets Archie Carmichael. Handsome, wealthy - the only man she's ever met who seems to accept her modern ways, her independent nature, and passion for success. But once she accepts his proposal of marriage, he starts to change his tune, and Olive must decide if she is willing to reveal a devastating secret and sacrifice the life she loves for the man she loves.
