Harry Rechthart always knew how to laugh, but laughter can hide a lot of pain that's drowned by the bottle and good times. He grew up the joker in the early 1900s in Cleveland, Ohio, but as he enters adulthood, conflict splits him. His once close relationship with his brother, Erik, breaks as they come into their own and Erik goes off to college. No longer under Erik's shadow, Harry feels he might finally shine and make others see him as someone to be proud of. Harry finds an unlikely comrade who understands how he feels-his younger sister, Hannah. Once free of high school, Harry and Hannah double date sister and brother, Kat and Will Jones, attending wild, extravagant parties during the years of Prohibition. Harry thinks he's won at life-he's found love in Kat, in a good time, and in the bottle. But all the light goes out fast when Harry's alcoholism leads to disastrous consequences for him and Kat. Harry thinks the joke's on him now that he's sunk lower than ever. He's in jail. He's pushed away his family. He's a broken man, but in the darkest depths of a prison cell, there is hope. Can Harry rebuild his life and learn that true laughter comes from knowing true joy, or will he bury himself once and for all in this laughing matter of pain?"Harry chooses to laugh off all of his troubles as a teenager, and later - to drink them away, immersed into a chimeric life of illegal alcohol, dubious relationship, and bad choices made in the prestigious Millionaires' Row. One of such choices ends up in tragedy, which will haunt Harry for the rest of his life. Now, it's up to him to rebuild it anew or drink it away like he used to." - 5-star review by Ellie Midwood, award-winning author of The Girl from Berlin series
