Review of The First Emma

Camille Di Maio writes the most amazing historical fiction books! This is another one that is based in fact. The first Emma was an actual person and was a formidable and remarkable woman. She was quite the business woman and ran a brewery in San Antonio in and around 1918. Not the thing that women did in those days. The book documents what the author could find out about Emma’s life and develops a fiction story around it. Fun fact - there were three Emma’s in real life and they were all vastly different women. I’ll let you find out how that works. This is a historical fiction book that I highly recommend. The research alone for this story is amazing.
