An intimate portrait of the close friendship and powerful creative partnership between two of Hollywood's earliest female superstars: Frances Marion and Mary Pickford. Hollywood, 1914. Frances Marion, a young writer desperate for a break, meets "America's Sweetheart," Mary Pickford, already making a name for herself. Together, these two women will take the movie business by storm. This is a novel about the power of women during the exhilarating early years of Hollywood, and the power of forgiveness. It's also about the imbalance of power, then and now, and the sacrifices and compromises women must make in order to succeed.
