Publisher's Summary

From the author of The Color of Secrets and The Woman on the Orient Express comes a poignant novel inspired by the Hollywood legend - and the secrets of - actress Merle Oberon, famous for playing Cathy to Laurence Olivier's Heathcliff in the film Wuthering Heights.

For nineteen-year-old Estelle Thompson, going to the cinema is more than a way to pass the time...it's a way out. In 1931 in Calcutta, Anglo-Indian girls like Estelle are considered half-breeds, shunned by both English and Indian society. Her only escape is through the silver screen, where she can forget the world around her.

When Estelle catches the eye of a dashing American heir with connections to a major motion-picture studio, he also captures her heart. Soon, Estelle has a one-way ticket to London and a recommendation for a screen test.

To get to the top, she must keep her Indian heritage concealed - and so begins her new identity as movie goddess Merle Oberon. But just as her dreams are poised to come true, she discovers that her own family is keeping a much more shocking secret from her - one that changes everything she's believed about her past.

    "Interesting enough..."

    The book was interesting in that it provided context to a fairly unknown, but not forgotten actress.
    However, I found it sad to realize that these actresses - whom I had previously chose to view through the rose colored glasses of the roles they played - were as morally bankrupt as much of Hollywood is today. What happens to people when they become “famous”?
    It was difficult to listen to when I wanted to make Merle a heroine, but found it impossible due to her morally challenged behavior.
    Truth does not make a poor read...I was simply saddened.
