Year 12, Book 94

94. Bachelor Girl by Kim van Alkemande

This is a historical fiction book based on the true story of the owner of the Yankees’s owner Jacob Rupport, who upon his death in 1939 left the bulk of his estate to an unknown actress named Helen Winthrope Weyert. The author creates a tale about why Rupport would have left much of his fortune to her.

Jacob Rupport was present at the death of Helen’s father as a child and has kept an eye on her family ever since, and eventually takes her under his wing as an adult. She develops a friendship with Rupport’s personal secretary Albert, who is keeping secrets of his own. I very much enjoyed this book. I give it an 8 out of 10.
