To those who matter in 1950s Hollywood, Lena Scott is the hottest rising star to hit the silver screen since Marilyn Monroe. Few know her real name is Abra. Even fewer know the price she' s paid to finally feel like she' s somebody. To Pastor Ezekiel Freeman, Abra will always be the little girl who stole his heart the night he found her, a wailing newborn abandoned under a bridge on the outskirts of Haven. Zeke and his son, Joshua-- Abra' s closest friend-- watch her grow into an exotic beauty.
But Zeke knows the circumstances surrounding her birth etched scars deep in her heart, scars that leave her vulnerable to a fast-talking bad boy who proclaims his love and lures her to Tinseltown. Hollywood feels like a million miles from Haven, and naive Abra quickly learns what' s expected of an ambitious girl with stars in her eyes. But fame comes at an awful price. She has burned every bridge to get exactly what she thought she wanted. Now, all she wants is a way back home. In this riveting and highly anticipated tale of temptation, grace, and unconditional love, New York Times best-selling author Francine Rivers delivers big-canvas storytelling at its very best.
- Wonderful story of redemption
Wonderful story of redemption through twists and turns I never saw coming. This story kept me listening and engaged.
- Great female prodigal love story
Female story of the prodigal - the story so many young girls face - good story line - Love the redemption and faithfulness of God shown through the characters. No matter how bad you have it, whether Christian or not, God's grace will carry you through.
- It's a must-read for women especially for young girls.
It's not a book to make you smile. It's a book to make you think about our society, about the relationships between men and women, about humanity. The novel makes the readers discover (or rediscover) christian values.
