Editorial Reviews

Review

"Kate Alcott effortlessly evokes the shimmering world of vintage Hollywood as she drops a plucky young woman from Indiana into the tumultuous set of "Gone With the Wind" and a legendary silver screen romance, against the backdrop of the gathering storm in Europe. If you've ever longed to be a fly on the wall as Clark Gable loses his heart to the effervescent Carole Lombard, or watch Vivien Leigh gather herself together for her greatest scene, you'll devour this book as hungrily as I did."
-- Beatriz Williams, New York Times bestselling author of "A Hundred Summers"

"Sparkling with the magic of classic moviemaking and set against the fiery drama of Hollywood's "Gone With the Wind" filming, Alcott weaves fact and fiction so that readers cheer for the story to be reality-- a place where we all might find... a touch of stardust. "
-- Sarah McCoy, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Baker's Daughter "
"Alcott should entrance large audiences with her stellar historical novel...nuanced and substantive... The briskly paced narrative captivates as it lets readers view the creation of silver-screen magic, and it's also a terrific tribute to the industry pioneers."
""--" Booklist"
"How fun is this? Alcott, author of the" New York Times" best-selling "The Dressmaker," has written a big, sprawling novel about the filming of "Gone with the Wind, "with a side trip to the boiling-over romance between its leading man, Clark Gable, and sunny Carole Lombard."
"--" "Library Journal"
