About

Overview

A New York Times Bestselling Author

A beautifully written and deeply moving coming-of-age novel set in 1950s Hollywood. Movie star Ingrid Bergman’s affair with director Roberto Rossellini shocks her legions of American fans, and robs seventeen-year-old Jessica Malloy of her childhood hero — forcing her to reconsider everything she was raised to believe.

Reviews

Customer Reviews

“Movie fans and readers of historical fiction will appreciate this loving tribute to Old Hollywood and its stars.”

— Library Journal

“Alcott tells another tremendously appealing story with great skill and insight, extending her reign as a top popular historical novelist."

— Booklist

“[An] affecting coming of age novel . . . Alcott effectively uses Bergman’s 1950 fall from grace, seen through Jessica’s eyes . . . drawing in readers from the start with smooth writing. Her storytelling skillfully taps into Jessica’s black-and-white adolescent worldview and the distance she maintains from others as an adult, making both real and surprisingly emotional.”
