I loved this book. The book is about Tessa who has a baby at the age of 14 and the child is raised as her sister. She goes on become a famous actress, and becomes estranged from the child and has to find a way to reunite them. This was just a really well written dramatic novel

From a strand of understated Tiffany pearls, bought with Tessa Kent's first earnings as an actress, to the flash of honey-green emeralds slung around her neck by her Aussie mogul husband, Luke Blake, Tessa's gems are the tangible sign of her stardom and power over men.
