It's the Roaring Twenties, and 17-year-old Harlean Carpenter McGrew has run off to Beverly Hills. She's chasing a dream - to escape her small, Midwestern life and see her name in lights. In California, Harlean has everything a girl could want - a rich husband, glamorous parties, socialite friends - except an outlet for her talent. But everything changes when a dare pushes her to embrace her true ambition - to be an actress on the silver screen.

Loved this book. I think reading it has made me a better person! I have always thought of myself as s compassionate person, but now I think I have a way to go before I can truly be as compassionate, empathetic and sympathetic as I have always thought I was! I would love to meet Father G!

Amos Decker's life changed forever - twice. The first time was on the gridiron. A big, towering athlete, he was the only person from his hometown of Burlington ever to go pro. But his career ended before it had a chance to begin. On his very first play, a violent helmet-to-helmet collision knocked him off the field for good and left him with an improbable side effect - he can never forget anything.
