The girls are best friends until something dreadful happens which sets them both off on a spiral of revenge, one against the other. Pride and stubbornness prevents the girls from making up their quarrel and it escalates for decades, affecting relationships with future husbands and family until something else happens and the two grown women have the chance to put everything behind them and start again.
I felt the story wandered off the plot too many times, although it gave the reader a fascinating glimpse of theatre life in the early 20th century, and Hollywood film making in infancy. I found myself getting bored quite frequently and skimmed over some pages to get back to the plot.
I felt that the end, when it came, was unsatisfactory and left much unsaid.
