    1 thought on “Chasing Carole

    1. Chasing Carole is a meticulously researched novel focused primarily on Carole Lombard, but it encompasses the Golden Age of Hollywood as a context Its title derives from Cass McGowan s search for her grandmother, after discovering at a vulnerable age that she was indeed Carole Lombard s granddaughter and not who she d thought she was The novel s theme is the subtle complexities of love, of its eternal bonds, and when Lombard herself reaches out from the beyond to help her granddaughter deal with [...]

    2. An amazing work of genius that simply cannot be put down Ms Washburn so brilliantly captures the spirit and soul of Carole Lombard in a voice that is authentic, enthralling, and provides a real, unadorned take on the Golden Age of Hollywood from the perspective of its reigning Screwball Queen It is a stylistic masterpiece that fluidly weaves a tale in two time frames that feed into one another until they ultimately become one entity in a smart, appropriate, authentic climax that marries Carole s [...]

    3. I must say that Ms Washburn certainly took the time and effort for the history of Ms Lombard and the Golden Age but the story fell flat A woman finds out that her mother is really Carole s child and not her cousin goes on an adventure into the life of Carole through her journals and papers that she has received quite easily from John Clark Gable From seeing ghosts, to listening to her mother s tales, and through the headaches Cassandra makes it through.Filled with great believable conversations [...]

    4. A wonderful book about Lombard and Gable and a riveting, blissful look into my favorite era The author relates Carole s life to the present tense I couldn t put it down.

    5. If you re considering this book because you re a fan of the golden age of hollywood, please read the description of it carefully.
