The author, Rebecca Rosenberg, dressed according to the time period and she gave a great presentation about the story of the Londons and Houdinis that gave spice to this novel.
  • "We had a full house with over 100 people in the audience, who were really amazed and impressed to see such an event taking place at our bookstore. It really was a night to remember! The book Secret Life of Mrs. London has been in our best seller and recommended list and it constantly receives great reviews from our customers and the public."

  • "Rebecca presented at the Sonoma Valley Authors Festival in May, 2018 and did an excellent job. Her command of the history of Jack London, Charmian and Houdini brought the story of these historical figures to life. Rebecca's enthusiasm for the subject matter and her ability to weave the facts into a compelling novel kept the audience engaged and asking questions."
