An entertaining novel about Loretta Young during the Golden Age of movies and beyond. It's hard to remember this is a work of fiction while reading it, Trigiani does such a good job blending fact and fiction.
I love Trigiani's novels. This one is a bit different from her others, but I liked it just a much!

Knowing what we now now about the Loretta Young/Clark Gable relationship, this book reads more like a fantasy than fiction. It is written in the Adriana Trigiani style, which is poetic and appealing. But I think that time has shown us that Mr. Gable was at best a womanizer,and at worst a 'date raipist'. There is a disclaimer in the front to remind us that this is a work of fiction, and it is good to remember that fact. Like most books about Hollywood, especially in the '30's, it's just a little too gossipy, or chatty for me. Everyone is clever, lovely and sexy. A good read if you need to have some distraction for awhile.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this Hollywood fictionalized story centered around Loretta Young and Clark Gable and interwoven with other famous actors and actresses in the film industry. I have always been more of a fan of Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn so I especially enjoyed the moments when he stepped into the story. This was the first book I had read by Adriana Trigiani and was so impressed with her beautiful writing that I immediately looked for more books by her. It was an absolute joy to read!
