To those who matter in 1950s Hollywood, Lena Scott is the hottest rising star to hit the silver screen since Marilyn Monroe. Few know her real name is Abra. Even fewer know the price she' s paid to finally feel like she' s somebody. To Pastor Ezekiel Freeman, Abra will always be the little girl who stole his heart the night he found her, a wailing newborn abandoned under a bridge on the outskirts of Haven. Zeke and his son, Joshua-- Abra' s closest friend-- watch her grow into an exotic beauty. But Zeke knows the circumstances surrounding her birth etched scars deep in her heart, scars that leave her vulnerable to a fast-talking bad boy who proclaims his love and lures her to Tinseltown. Hollywood feels like a million miles from Haven, and naive Abra quickly learns what' s expected of an ambitious girl with stars in her eyes. But fame comes at an awful price. She has burned every bridge to get exactly what she thought she wanted. Now, all she wants is a way back home. In this riveting and highly anticipated tale of temptation, grace, and unconditional love, New York Times best-selling author Francine Rivers delivers big-canvas storytelling at its very best.

Great story with a nice Godly message. Easy to listen to.

Was hoping for a fun 1950s Hollywood story and instead got a story full of Christianity, old-fashioned values and morals. Skip this book unless you want Jesus and religion.

I think the author made a mistake in the way she wrote this book: to those who are not Christian it was boring and too preachy, they don't want Jesus and religion. To the Christian it went too far into the lust and desires of the flesh so it was more difficult to truly hear the message of the Lord. Once I finally understood that it was the message from Ezekiel 16 I understood the message of the Lord in it.

Boring. Way too preachy at the end.

Good clean story. Joshua was a little too good to be true.

This read is really neither good or bad. It follows Aubra, and it’s funny that she feels unwanted by the people who adopt her or find her under a bridge; yet doesn’t blame the parents who left her there. The brother/sister/boyfriend/girlfriend combo was something I couldn’t get over to enjoy this read.

So relevant, so deeply touching and beautifully written! A must read for everyone who has messed up so badly that they see no hope. And for every person that thinks that they are well in control of achieving their goals in life.

A refreshingly inspirational story based on valuable core values! Who says clean books are boring? Not this one. Well done, Ms Rivers.

I agree with other reviews. The main female character constantly chose the life of the victim, the plot line was somewhat incestuous, and the main male character was not believable because he was almost a saint. The story has a lot of fuller words, repetition, and the ending is not a surprise at all.

A wonderful story of life in a small town and all the characters were believable a much like the small town I grew up in. Beautifully written with love and inspiration. Bill Adams

The story was good and felt very real. I relate to Albra, not a lot of the things she did but the way she never felt loved. Never felt “good enough” my mother did not abandon me, but I was very young when she died.

The book wasn't bad but I was not a fan of this narrator. Think I would have enjoyed this alot more if i had just read it myself. A good story though, the plot kept me coming back.

The book was good; a touching story. But a little too long, written well enough to keep me coming back.

The book was great! I ended up just reading it. Couldn't deal with the woman's voice narrating. It threw me all off trying to concentrate on what was going on! Think I'll stick to reading :(
