I loved this book. I can't tell how much I loved it. I tell all my friends that they should order Coronet Books.

If you like Hollywood name-droppers, this one is for you! 24 Jun. 1998
By ACrawfordFan - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Having just recently discovered Phyllis A. Whitney, I must admit she has conquered another loyal reader. A young woman almost conquered by a cruel husband flees with her son to save herself and her son from his cruelty. She runs to her great aunt's very secure fortress. But there she finds her safety in doubt as well as her aunt's, a former Hollywood star who quit the scene after her last movie entitled "Mirage." The secrets of the aunt's past coupled with the cruelty of the husband throws our heroine into many neat twists. The denoument is so very clever. As I read I found myself really getting into the mysteries of the star, but at the same time the tribulations of her niece were so complex and real. Once I started I had a hard time putting the novel down. Thank you Mrs. Whitney for some interesting reading while I sunned myself at the beach. I am ready for another installment of mystery and intrigue.
An agonizing drag, preposterous ending 24 Jun. 2010
By Diana - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The heroine, Carol, flees with her young son Keith to Palm Springs, California, to escape her violent ex-husband, Owen. In Palm Springs she seeks sanctuary at the gated estate of an aunt she had never met but with whom she had corresponded over the years. Her Aunt is a recluse but was once a famous Hollywood actress who ended her career abruptly under circumstances shrouded with mystery. Much of this novel is spent with Carol's agonizing over whether her ex-husband will snatch her son, Keith, as well as worrying about her fragile relationship with her aunt and whether her aunt will allow her and her son to stay at the estate. I did not enjoy this book at all. As a final insult, the ending was completely preposterous, even for fiction.

As usual, Ms. Whitney weaves a fine story. But wait till you read the totally unexpected ending; it will knock your socks off.

Snooze 14 Oct. 2006
By Readsalot - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was my first Phyllis Whitney novel - it will probably be my last. I'll be very brief. Read the first 75 pages then skip to the end and read the last chapter. That's what I did. All of your questions will be answered and your suppositions confirmed. You'll feel like you really read the whole book.
