Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Another Side of Paradise by Sally Koslow. Thank you to @suzyapprovedbooktours for the invitation to read and review this historical fiction book.  The paperback version released on May 28th!

.

Welcome to Hollywood, 1937.   We meet Sheilah Graham, a gossip columnist, who has a glamorous life writing about the movie stars of the Golden Age of cinema.  She fought her way from London’s slums to LA to follow her dreams of a better life.  While attending a glitzy party, she meets F. Scott Fitzgerald.  As Sheilah tells us, that’s when her real life began.

.

Fitzgerald is in LA, trying to write movie scripts to make money while trying to stay sober.  His wife, Zelda, is back East in a mental institution.  Graham and Fitzgerald begin a tumultuous love affair even though Sheilah knows that Scott will never leave his wife.

.

I enjoyed reading this historical fiction about Sheilah, her early life and her relationship with Scott.  I was so moved by her story and I definitely recommend this book to all historical fiction fans, especially if you enjoy reading about the latter part of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s life, Old Hollywood, and a grand love affair. ❤️📽
