Book Review: Limelight

Claudette Fioré used to turn heads and break hearts. She relished the glamorous Hollywood lifestyle because she had what it takes: money, youth, fame, and above all, beauty. But age has withered that beauty, and a crooked accountant has taken her wealth, leaving the proud widow penniless and alone.

Armed with stubbornness and sarcasm, Claudette returns to her shabby little hometown and her estranged sister. Slowly, she makes friends. She begins to see her old life in a new light. For the first time, Claudette Fioré questions her own values and finds herself wondering if it's too late to change.

This book is both hilarious and full of heartache. Throughout the book there are stories that give you a glimpse into the highs and lows of the characters pasts. There are also plenty of opportunities to observe the ups and downs of their lives in the present and snapshots of what their future might hold.

The main character Claudette is absolutely entertaining and mesmerizing. As the characters begin to unfold in the story you begin to attach to them, to root for their success and to feel their emotions. There are both successes and failures throughout the book that you begin to feel a part of as you begin to know and understand the characters.

There is much to learn from Claudette in this story no matter what your age. Her questions, the things she must learn about, and the preconceived notions that she must find a way to put aside are lessons that all people can relate to no matter what stage of life you are in.
