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.
