"It's 1927 when Olive McCormick moves from Minneapolis to New York City determined to become a star in the Ziegfeld Follies. Extremely talented as a singer and dancer, it takes every bit of perseverance to finally make it on stage. And once she does, all the glamour and excitement is everything she imagined and more-even worth all the sacrifices she has had to make along the way. Then she meets Archie Carmichael. Handsome, wealthy-the only man she's ever met who seems to accept her modern ways-her independent nature and passion for success. But once she accepts his proposal of marriage he starts to change his tune, and Olive must decide if she is willing to reveal a devastating secret and sacrifice the life she loves for the man she loves."-- Provided by publisher.

The summary on the back says it all. The writer takes one on an incredible journey. Transporting the reader to many places from humble beginnings to glamour, fame and dispair not to forget the plot twists along the way. I did not want it to end. Nicola Harrison could certainly write a sequel!
