Sophie Leigh's real name is Sophie Sykes. But she hasn't been called that for years, not since she became an A-list movie star. Living in Los Angeles, she can forget all about the life she left behind in England. But she's lost something of herself in the process, too.
Glamorous 1950s starlet Eve Noel had none of Sophie's modern self-confidence. She didn't choose her name. A Hollywood producer did. In fact, he made all her decisions--what to wear, when to smile, who to love. Right up until the day she simply vanished from the spotlight. No one knows where she went, or why.
As Sophie's perfect-on-the-outside world begins to crumble, her present col-lides with Eve's past. She must unravel the mystery around her idol's disappear-ance before it's too late for them both.
- The prologue begins with Rose telling Eve that elves have left gold coins in the stream, introducing the ideas of imagination and make believe from the very beginning of this story. Where else do you see these ideas threaded through in Eve’s life—in her career choice, her romantic life, her later years? Do you see them echoed in Sophie’s life as well?
