Endorsements

“A compelling tale of one woman’s journey from the excitement of the limelight to contentment in the twilight. When eighty-two-year-old Claudette is forced to leave her pampered Hollywood life and return to the backward town she escaped decades ago, she isn’t sure she wants to continue living – especially if it means facing her estranged sister and the secret she has avoided for years. Limelight is a beautiful coming-of-age story at the other end of the spectrum.” — Virginia Smith, author of Third Time’s a Charm and the Sister-to-Sister Series

“Only a gifted writer like Melody Carlson could present a self-centered character in such a way that the reader can’t wait to turn the page and learn more about her. Claudette’s poignant, yet amusing journey from worldly has-been diva to genuine, honest woman grabs the reader by the heartstrings and doesn’t let go, even after the end. Highly recommended!” — Jill Elizabeth Nelson, author of the To Catch a Thief series

“…any story by Carlson is worth encountering.” — Booklist

“Melody Carlson’s style is mature and bitingly funny, and her gift for connecting our heart to the character’s plight also connects us to the complicated human condition and our need for one another.” — Patricia Hickman, author of Painted Dresses

“Melody Carlson never fails to drag us out of our Christian easychairs and right into the coals of the confusing culture in which we all find ourselves. She never fails to reveal that place of compassion within each of us. Excellent.” — Lisa Samson, author of The Church Ladies and Tiger Lillie

“With great confidence, I can say that Melody Carlson’s story will enlighten, encourage, and empower you.” — Gregory L. Jantz, Ph.D., Founder and Executive Director of The Center for Counseling & Health Resources, Inc.

Publisher's Weekly

Inspirational author Carlson, whose sales exceed 2.5 million copies, offers her fans a delightful tale of a beautiful starlet whose life in the limelight has long passed the curtain-call stage. Claudette Fioré, widow of the deceased famed director Gavin Fioré, loses her home after an accountant misappropriates the family fortune. Claudette, despondent with grief, attempts to kill herself and lands in a hospital, where she implores her gay stepson to rescue her. Once Claudette is released, she is forced to return to her mother's home and, through a comedy of errors, realizes her once glamorous lifestyle has left her bereft of any life skills. With only an estranged sister to turn to, Claudette begrudgingly pays sister Violet a call in the local retirement facility. Too bad they refuse to make amends; Claudette must suffer yet more indignities as she slowly learns that her sister has similarly suffered in her own way. Carlson's story line, though implausible, is full of keen, dry wit and will more than make up for the unlikely events. (Oct.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
