“Beautifully written and compulsively readable…At its core, this book is about redemption, grace, and pain.” (Jenna Bush Hager)

“A novel so full-blooded, so humane, that the pages feel almost warm to the touch. A clarifying, purifying chronicle of a promising young woman gone astray and the story of her comeback. Grace Turner can do it. You can do it, too.” (A.J. Finn)

Grace Turner was one movie away from Hollywood’s A-List. So no one understood why, at the height of her career and on the eve of her first Golden Globe nomination, she disappeared.

Now, one year later, Grace is back in Los Angeles and ready to reclaim her life on her own terms. 

When Grace is asked to present a lifetime achievement award to director Able Yorke - the man who controlled her every move for eight years - she knows there’s only one way she’ll be free of the secret that’s already taken so much from her.

The Comeback is a moving and provocative story of justice - a true pause resister about a young woman finding the strength and power of her voice.

Critic reviews

"Ella Berman's debut novel is a Hollywood tale that packs a wallop...the reader is taken on a journey of self-discovery and redemption...Grace Turner dreams big, suffers and soars. A stunning debut." (Adriana Trigiani, New York Times best-selling author of The Shoemaker's Wife

"Berman’s novel of a young woman recruited far too early in her life into the Hollywood machine may be the smartest book I’ve read in the past few years...." (Lithub)

In this compulsively readable story, Berman smartly picks apart the idea of a perfect victim.... It’s a tale as old as time, told compassionately through a fresh new lens." (Mashable)
