it was amazing

Can a small cinema in the country town of Starlight Creek get people opening up, can it bring people together not just a town but help people find love and above all find their dreams?

It is 1994 and Claire Montgomery arrives as location manager working on a TV mini -series she discovers a beautiful art deco cinema, and now she must convince the owner to let them film in this cinema, not an easy task when she comes up against the owners great nephew Luke, a heartfelt appeal by letter to the owner Hattie Fitzpatrick, gets her permission and brings her closer to the wonderful lady and her great nephew, Claire pushes to make her dreams come true.

We go back to 1950 Hollywood the time of glamour and leading ladies and men, a time where everyone is competing to make it to the top and the woman are struggling more with wages and the way they are treated there is also a lot going on with codes directing the way movies are made, and here we meet the beautiful Lena Lee who is making it to top billing with her leading man when everything turns upside down.

I loved the book from the start both Claire and Lena are strong woman they are caring and thoughtful, and they have dreams that have taken them from their homes to places that have made a difference in not only their lives but other peoples as well. There are tears and smiles throughout this story of love and loss, but the strength that both show in different time periods and then as secrets are uncovered and truths are told, this one left me feeling so good such fabulous characters that I felt very close to and Claire and Luke yes. Thank you MS Sinclair this one is a keep and one that I highly recommend.
