Hollywood Secrets and Pasts

Melting the Snow on Hester Street by Daisy Waugh

Its 1929 and movie director Max Beecham and his actress wife Eleanor hobnob with Charlie Chaplain, Greta Garbo, Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford, John Barrymore, Gloria Swanson and more. To them, Max and Eleanor are the happiest, most loving couple in Hollywood. However, the Beechams are even better actors than those on the silver screen. They haven't been happy since they left their old lives behind in New York, together with their tiny daughter, Isha. While Max seems to have given up, Eleanor is still determined to find her, or at least find out what happened to her.

"Melting the Snow on Hester Street" by Daisy Waugh, published by Harper Collins, March 2013 is available from Amazon, Kobo Books (eReader formats), The Book Depository (free worldwide delivery) and new or used from Alibris or Better World Books. I would like to thank the publishers for sending an uncorrected proof copy of this book for review. This is a version of my review that appeared on Curious Book Fans, Dooyoo (under my username TheChocolateLady) and {the now defunct} Yahoo! Contributor Network.
