Japonette is a romance novel set in New York shortly after the beginning of the twentieth century. The love story of Jim Edgerton and Japonette is an exciting read full of many conflicts that stand in the way of them being together. It is filled with witty banter, civil society, rich people, and grand parties. In addition, the author presents many accurate observations of the characteristics of New York City residents. Excerpt from Japonette "The failure of the old-time firm of Edgerton, Tennant & Co. was unusual only because it was an honest one—the bewildered creditors receiving a hundred cents on a dollar from property not legally involved. Edgerton had been dead for several years; the failure of the firm presently killed old Tennant, who was not only old in years, but also old in fashion—so obsolete, in fact, were the fashions he clung to that he had used his last cent in a matter which he regarded as involving his personal honor."
