Reviews
"Complex, engaging, and beautifully written, A Golden Life is a celebration of the human condition in all its vanity and weakness, finally transcended by forgiveness and love. You will not want this novel to end." --Marian O'Shea Wernicke, author of Toward That Which Is Beautiful and Out of Ireland
"Step into the lavish world of 1930s Hollywood in Ginny Kubitz Moyer's A Golden Life. A vibrant, captivating, and entertaining read!" --Ashley E. Sweeney, author of Eliza Waite
"A Golden Life is a wonderful portrait of an independent woman in 1930s California that explores the ways in which women's lives were constrained by the mores of the time. The settings are beautifully drawn and developed--special and loving attention is paid to the beauty of the natural world. Ginny Kubitz Moyer writes with quiet authority and strong prose, creating a novel that is hard to put down and characters that remain long after the book is read." --Laura Spence-Ash, author of Beyond That, the Sea
"Step into the late 1930s epicenter of Hollywood's Golden Age. . . . Moyer touches on larger life issues, including women's limited choices and stereotypes and how society came to expect relationships to emulate the glittery romance Hollywood cinema created. Unputdownable!" --Francine Falk-Allen, author of A Wolff in the Family and Not a Poster Child

"A Golden Life masterfully captures the Golden Age of Hollywood. The prose glimmers with tension and mystery, revealing the raw ambition and resilience that define a young, headstrong woman's journey through early adulthood. It's a luminous tale that lingers, like the echo of applause after the final curtain falls." --Joanne Howard, author of Sleeping in the Sun

"In this captivating novel, a young woman becomes the confidante to both the powerful and powerless of Old Hollywood--all while trying to outrun her own painful past. Ginny Kubitz Moyer beautifully renders an entire cast of complex and tender characters who remind us just how precarious and precious life can be. You'll love it." --Katherine A. Sherbrooke, author of The Hidden Life of Aster Kelly
"Once I started Ginny Kubitz Moyer's A Golden Life, I couldn't put it down. A story about confronting the past and owning one's story, this novel is filled with enchanting period details, memorable characters, and an ending you won't see coming. Five gold stars for this truly entertaining read!" --Susie Orman Schnall, author of Anna Bright Is Hiding Something and We Came Here to Shine
