Such Devoted Sisters
A generations-spanning saga shows what it means to be a sister
If it weren’t for her sister, Dolly might have been the most famous actress of Hollywood’s golden age. But Eve’s beauty and drive have pushed Dolly onto the B-list, where the seeds of jealousy take root. An unscrupulous agent gives her a chance at a comeback, and she takes it at Eve’s expense. She gives her sister’s name to Senator Joe McCarthy, ending Eve’s career and sparking a family tragedy that resonates through the decades. Years later, Eve’s daughters are pitted against each other, each competing for the affections of the same man. One is a chocolatier, the other an aspiring illustrator. In seeking to regain the sisterly love that eluded their mother and aunt, they discover the awful truth about the past, which haunts their family still. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Eileen Goudge including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
