Keep watching this space for the next two weeks and enter to win a mega-prize that includes all 10 of these books (signed!) and a gorgeous travel tote! The first stop on our tour is to Hollywood, and our tour director is none other than the lovely Anne Girard, author of Platinum Doll!
It is the Roaring Twenties and seventeen-year-old Harlean Carpenter McGrew has run off to Hollywood—to escape her small, Midwestern life and see her name in lights. Harlean becomes Jean Harlow and as she is thrust into the limelight, Jean learns that this new world of opportunity comes with its own set of burdens. Torn between her family, a fragile young marriage, and her passion to perform, she is forced to confront the difficult truth—that fame comes at a price, if only she is willing to pay for it.
Amid a glittering cast of ingenues and Hollywood titans—Clara Bow, Clark Gable, Laurel and Hardy, Howard Hughes--Platinum Doll introduces us to the star who would shine brighter than them all.
Since the publication of her acclaimed first novel, Courtesan, in 1993, a novel that remains in print today, her work has been translated into 18 different languages, bringing her international success and award-winning status.
