Hi Judy - Yes this is a true story about a period of my grandmother's life in the 1920's -- the jazz age. It's set in Siam (now Thailand), Paris, and Rome. She was a beautiful woman. There's a picture of her in the back of the book. When women got the right to vote in 1920, she thought she would be free to follow any star they reached for. But not so, not just yet. And she had to choose between her family and her career, not once, but twice. That generation of women were the first, though, to have the RIGHT to choose. They paved the way for us today and many of us are still facing the same choice today, too.
