Twenty-six-year-old Fritzi Crown yearns for a life on the stage. Her choice means defying her wealthy father and social convention of the time. The path from starvation to stardom is filled with unexpected twists and turns as Fritzi moves from Broadway to Hollywood. Fritzi's brother Carl, forsakes academic pursuits in favor of racing cars, and her cousin Paul creates news reels for low-budget theaters. John Jakes weaves an intricate tale as changes in the Crowns' lives reflect the grand passions, dizzying progress, and vanishing innocence that is transforming American culture in a historical fiction at its best.

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.

I was a little disappointed with this sequel to Homeland - not as compelling.
