The movie business is booming in 1935 when twenty-one-year-old Loretta Young meets thirty-four-year-old Clark Gable on the set of The Call of the Wild. Though he's already married, Gable falls for the stunning and vivacious young actress instantly. Far from the glittering lights of Hollywood, Sister Alda Ducci has been forced to leave her convent and begin a new journey that leads her to Loretta. Becoming Miss Young's secretary, the innocent and pious young Alda must navigate the wild terrain of Hollywood with fierce determination and a moral code that derives from her Italian roots. Over the course of decades, she and Loretta encounter scandal and adventure, choose love and passion, and forge an enduring bond of love and loyalty that will be put to the test when they eventually face the greatest obstacle of their lives.

Trigiani transports the reader to 1930s Hollywood where a young Loretta Young falls in love with Clark Gable on an isolated movie set filming The Call of the Wild on Mount Baker. A secret baby, Judy, is born from this romance which could abruptly end Loretta's career if the little girl is publicly acknowledged. The author shares Loretta's story from her first movie in 1917 to her death in 1987. Along the way, the reader witnesses an ever-changing Hollywood from the silent movie era to television to VHS.
