Delbert Gray was an amateur photographer with a hunger for fame. The camera Delbert used was a cheap Kodak Instamatic. You can see why Delbert dreamed of owning a Nikon like his rich friend Michael. Michael would let his friend Delbert develop his pictures in his darkroom while he was developing his own.

A fascinating novel of the friendship and creative partnership between two of Hollywood´s earliest female legends - screenwriter Frances Marion and superstar Mary Pickford - from the New York Times best-selling author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue and The Aviator´s Wife It is 1914, and 25-year-old Frances Marion has left her (second) husband and her Northern California home for the lure of Los Angeles, where she is determined to live independently as an artist. But the word on everyone´s lips these days is ´´flickers´´ - the silent moving pictures enthralling theatergoers. Turn any corner in this burgeoning town and you´ll find made-up actors running around, as a movie camera captures it all. In this fledgling industry, Frances finds her true calling: writing stories for this wondrous new medium. She also makes the acquaintance of actress Mary Pickford, whose signature golden curls and lively spirit have earned her the title ´´America´s Sweetheart´´. The two ambitious young women hit it off instantly, their kinship fomented by their mutual fever to create, to move audiences to a frenzy, to start a revolution. But their ambitions are challenged by both the men around them and the limitations imposed on their gender - and their astronomical success could come at a price. As Mary, the world´s highest paid and most beloved actress, struggles to live her life under the spotlight, she also wonders if it is possible to find love, even with the dashing actor Douglas Fairbanks.
