I write about the original version which was written seventy years ago. The other version just isn't that good.
Nancy tries to figure out who is responsible for giving birth to the two babies adopted by the Blairs, a wealthy couple very much involved in the arts (she is a famous actress adored by all her fans and everyone in River Heights is thrilled to death that she is living among them, while her husband is an erudite director on the model of Erich Von Stroheim). The babies though, were not only adopted but practically stolen from a young desperate mother of twins who took a locket and broke it in half to be able to prove the maternity of her two beloved babies. This book will shock you down to your soul with its revelations of the way some people just adopt babies for "show." I wonder if Joan Crawford had the chance to read this book in the 1930s and that's where she came up with the idea of adopting the twins in real life! If so, she probably was very sorry eventually. Was there a broken locket in the Crawford case as well?
