Quotes & Awards

  • “The Marian portions…read like a carnival of early-20th-century American history, packed with bootleggers, treacherous boxcar rides, and tragic shipwrecks. The Hadley chapters offer a delectable dissection of life as a celebrity, serving up an intelligent skewering of the Hollywood machine.”


  • “This womanist epic…is nothing short of brilliant.”

    O, The Oprah Magazine

  • “A relentlessly exciting story about a woman maneuvering her way between tradition and prejudice to get what she wants. It’s also a culturally rich story…[of] the changing landscape of the 20th century.”
