About the Book

"Beautifully and gracefully written . . . delightful to read." The New York Times Book Review.

The breathtaking tale of two women -- legendary screen goddess Anna Asta and her trusted friend and housekeeper, Ivy Cook. Their youth long behind them, Anna and Ivy tell each other their stories, rearranging the events of the past, reevaluating them, until finally -- together -- they find the one story that lies beneath the apparently patternless chaos of their lives.
