Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Beautiful, mysterious, intelligent Queenie cajoles her unclewith whom she lives in her mother's boardinghouseinto stealing a bracelet so valuable it pays her way from India to London. Once there, she capitalizes on her looks, becomes a model, a Hollywood movie star; nonetheless her life is riddled with adversity, and her beauty repeatedly saves her. PW commented: ``Queenie remains . . . however, only a portrait who never comes to life, despite the fact that she is a thinly disguised stand-in for Merle Oberon, who was married to Korda's uncle.'' (April)
