Synopsis

What if, by the passing of just two events, Japan and Germany had won World War 2?

The Goddess of Fortune is a work of speculative fiction in which alternate history is explored, and consequences examined.

– Beautiful Louise, while only 24 years old, uses her intelligence, wiles, and body to dominate the so-called “stronger sex.”

– Kaito Sasaki of the Bank of Tokyo, inspired by Lenin (“The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency”), proves just that with his printing of U.S. 100 dollar bills.

– The treachery of Hermann “Fatso” Goering is uncovered and his punishment is swift.

– The duplicity of Roosevelt and his so-called Brains Trust is exposed and the doubts of the urbane gentleman, Henry Morgenthau, are made clear.

As a work of historical fiction, Goddess reveals the private foibles, quirks, and lusts of the famous (and often rich) of the period. How could the end goals of the Axis come to fruition given these events? Goddess explores just how, and in doing so brings to light in imaginative prose the lives of historical figures we have only known from our history books. Prepare to reimagine history.

***Shelly – #NerdGirlXrayer’s  Review***
Where was this book when I had to take history? Even though it is a work of fiction it makes learning history lessons fun.

This is a read that has many different characters and chapters take place in different countries. As you keep reading each character falls in place to what their place in history. The story makes you feel like you are in on secrets, lies, truths, deceit and secret meetings about historical events. So many of the characters are intriguing.

This is a hard review to write because it is hard to explain this book. There is information, explicit sex, and story lines that you don’t see coming or are not what you are expecting. However it is a story that is so intriguing and different to read that you will keep turning the pages to see what happens. I often guessed wrong on what would happen next and I loved this as it makes for a great read.
