This is what my editor said about the book and why she chose it for this month: 

For fans of Kristin Hannah and Taylor Jenkins Reid, bestselling author Emily Bleeker has written an absorbing, emotional, heartfelt historical novel—an exciting new genre for her! A dual-timeline World War II story, but with a unique Italian twist, this book just pulled me in and wouldn’t let go.

Elise, the granddaughter of Hollywood icon Vivian Snow, is brought deep into her grandmother’s past through the making of a documentary about Vivian’s life in her hometown of Edinburgh, Indiana, where in the 1940s Vivian made her debut as a performer at an Italian POW camp. Life-altering family secrets from the past are revealed, but in the present day, Elise finds the clarity she needs to make bold choices in life and in love. Focused on the war effort on American soil and following the life of a Hollywood star and her granddaughter, this all-American novel is packed with heart-wrenching drama and heart-stirring romance.

I found myself rooting for both Elise and Vivian in their separate timelines, totally swept away by so many aspects of this story: the romance, the coming-of-age elements, the secrets, and the drama. Prepare to be unable to put this book down or forget it anytime soon!
