SILVER SHADOWS, GOLDEN DREAMS
The only home Daisy Ford has ever known is a Californian orphanage. At sixteen , she resolves to put both the orphanage and her name behind her for good. Quite unaware of her haunting beauty, frighteningly innocent of the harsh ways of the outside world, she makes her way to Hollywood, determined to become an actress in the great tradition of the stars she admired as a child. Becoming known only by the name Valentina, she is helped in her ambition by a young Hungarian director, Vidal Rakoczi. Ahead lies stardom, but the price Daisy pays for it is high, for Vidal is a man with a dark past and a secret; a secret capable of destroying not only his life but, because of their all-consuming passion for each other, Daisy’s life as well.
‘A brilliant love story set in the heady days of early Hollywood.’
