Overview

En esta fascinante historia de tentación, gracia y amor incondicional, Francine Rivers, autora de éxitos de mayor venta del New York Times, presenta una magnífica historia de amplio panorama. Para las personas influyentes de Hollywood en la década de los 50, Lena Scott es la estrella en ascenso más destacada desde Marilyn Monroe. Pocos saben que su verdadero nombre es Ava. Aún menos saben el precio que ella pagó para por fin sentirse alguien en la vida. Para el pastor Ezekiel Freeman, Ava siempre será la niña que le robó el corazón la noche que la encontró, recién nacida y llorando, abandonada bajo un puente en las afueras del pueblo El Refugio. Ezekiel y su hijo, Joshua—el mejor amigo de Ava—la ven crecer y transformarse en una mujer con belleza exótica. Pero Ezekiel sabe que las circunstancias que rodearon el nacimiento de la niña han grabado cicatrices profundas en su corazón, cicatrices que la dejan vulnerable a un galán engañoso que le promete grandes cosas. La ingenua Ava siente que Hollywood es un mundo aparte de El Refugio, y rápidamente aprende lo que se espera de una chica ambiciosa e ilusionada. Sin embargo, la fama tiene un costo devastador. Ella ha quemado todas sus naves para conseguir exactamente lo que creía querer. Ahora todo lo que desea es poder regresar a casa.

In this riveting and highly anticipated tale of temptation, grace, and unconditional love, New York Times bestselling author Francine Rivers delivers big-canvas storytelling at its very best. To those who matter in 1950s Hollywood, Lena Scott is the hottest rising star to hit the silver screen since Marilyn Monroe. Few know her real name is Abra. Even fewer know the price she’s paid to finally feel like she’s somebody. To Pastor Ezekiel Freeman, Abra will always be the little girl who stole his heart the night he found her, a wailing newborn abandoned under a bridge on the outskirts of Haven. Zeke and his son, Joshua—Abra’s closest friend—watch her grow into an exotic beauty. But Zeke knows the circumstances surrounding her birth have etched scars deep in her heart, scars that leave her vulnerable to a fast-talking charmer who lures her to Tinseltown. Hollywood feels like a million miles from Haven, and naive Abra quickly learns what’s expected of an ambitious girl with stars in her eyes. But fame comes at a devastating price. She has burned every bridge to get exactly what she thought she wanted. Now all she wants is a way back home.

About the Author

From 1976 to 1985, Francine Rivers had a successful writing career in the general market, and her books were awarded or nominated for numerous awards and prizes. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, mother of three, and an established romance novelist. Shortly after becoming a born-again Christian in 1986, Francine wrote Redeeming Love as her statement of faith. This retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea set during the time of the California Gold Rush is now considered by many to be a classic work of Christian fiction. Redeeming Love continues to be one of the Christian Booksellers Association’s top-selling titles, and it has held a spot on the Christian bestsellers list for nearly a decade.

Since Redeeming Love, Francine has published numerous novels with Christian themes--all bestsellers--and she has continued to win both industry acclaim and reader loyalty around the globe. Her Christian novels have also been awarded or nominated for numerous awards, including the Christy Award and the ECPA Gold Medallion. Francine’s novels have been translated into over twenty different languages, and she enjoys bestseller status in many foreign countries including Germany, The Netherlands, and South Africa.

Francine and her husband, Rick, live in Northern California and enjoy the time spent with their three grown children and every opportunity to spoil their four grandchildren. She uses her writing to draw closer to the Lord, and that through her work she might worship and praise Jesus for all He has done and is doing in her life.
