"In 1953, desperation forces war widow, Eliza Saunderson, to take a job writing the memoir of ex-Hollywood heartthrob, Johnny Devine. Rumor has it Johnny can seduce anything in a skirt quicker than he can hail a cab. But now, the notorious womanizer claims he's born again. Eliza soon finds herself falling for the humble, grace-filled man John has become--a man who shows no sign of returning her feelings. No sign, that is, until she discovers something John never meant for her to see. When Eliza's articles on minority oppression land her on McCarthy's communist hit list, both John and Eliza become entangled in a HUAC investigation that threatens both John's book and Eliza's future. To clear her name, Eliza must solve a family mystery. Plus, she needs to convince John that real love--not the Hollywood illusion--can forgive a sordid past. Just when the hope of love becomes reality, a troubling discovery confirms Eliza's worst fears. Like the happy façade many Americans cling to, had it all been empty lies? Is there a love she can truly believe in? 'The Memoir of Johnny Devine' is a dramatic story-within-a-story of a bad boy reformed and a good girl in need of reform. It's a powerful tale of love, redemption, intrigue, and the miracle of deliberate grace." -- Page 4 of cover.
