Meet Nicholas and Jane. He is stunningly handsome. She is wonderfully funny. He's a famous movie star. She becomes famous for quite another reason. They come from two very different worlds to forge a life together in this warm, witty and wonderfully entertaining novel of love and marriage, parents and children, struggle and success and . . . everything.
