Plus Elise's epiphany and desire to good by the end of this felt superficial at best and egotistical at worse with her exposition dump of newly acquired social justice knowledge felt rushed and forced. Public conspiracy theories had exploded after news leaked that Kitty bequeathed her entire fortune—about six hundred million dollars—to Elise and her sisters, Giovanni and Noele. In addition to the regular and intrusive press coverage to which the family is subjected, the media is anxious to find out why the three Black St. I finished this hoping for an author's note because this raises so many questions, but perhaps they're meant not to be answered.

When white silver screen actress Kitty Karr Tate dies and unexpectedly leaves her multimillion-dollar estate to the Black St. There were many things about this book that caused me to pause in ponder weather I wanted to continue reading it for one thing why would you make an affluent family the pot smokers I thought that was so odd and then when Hazel gave Mary all that money to go away and live as a white woman that’s the first time I really considered to stop reading the book for one thing Hazel didn’t know Mary would become a famous actress so she is essentially giving her daughter up to go live a life with strangers is it a life with no family but as a white person is much better than a life with family and being around those you love. is well-written and engrossing, but I did feel like some parts were rushed and like some scenes were even missing—I would have loved to see more of Kitty as her status elevated higher in the industry and further explorations of how both her fame and hidden background affected her sense of self and relationships with others. Feeling a rush of tears, Elise turned from the kitchen entry and walked farther down the driveway to the backyard.Out of the 2 timelines, I found the past one a lot more interesting - the characters in the present timeline were not as engaging but it was still a great story overall.

The story as I mentioned could have been a great story but it suffered from a disorganized storytelling and a weak modern framing of that story. She’d been awake almost twenty-four hours, and Elise could see the rhythm of her mania, although to her sisters it probably looked like excitement.

Now she's been nominated for an Oscar that could expand her successful acting career, but she's not sure if that's what she wants. As the pieces came together connecting these 2 timelines, the story really captured my heart and opened up a lot of questions about everything we inherit due to our family, race, and gender. I love to read and review various genres with a focus on contemporary fiction, historical fiction with some mysteries/thrillers and also select nonfiction and memoirs. The story became a lot more interesting to me after it opened up a second timeline about a single mother in the segregated South in the 1930s-50s.

John—three black sisters who have been famous since birth thanks to the accomplishments of their actress mother and musician father—the inheritance opens up a barrage of questions from the press and public. To complicate matters, her neighbor and friend Kitty Karr, has left her in charge of settling her estate. Kitty had become an urban legend postmortem, a Sunset Boulevard caricature who, rumor said, had committed suicide after years of seclusion. Paul’s debut is a riveting, often heartbreaking tale that explores race, privilege, and celebrity in America through the eyes of a one-of-a-kind character.If you suspend the leaf and common sense then you may love the book as many people do but what I thought of thinking about the whole premise and giving up your family or your family giving you up none of it sounded believable. Visitors likened it to a giant dream catcher, fitting considering that what and who lay behind its presence mirrored the collected, albeit programmed, wants of many. Spanning multiple generations, the story focuses on White actress and celebrity icon of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Kitty Karr. For fans of Evelyn Hugo and Dava Shastri's Last Day, a highly anticipated read that showcases a main character who sacrifices so much and relevant themes like motherhood, identity, and fame, but struggles to truly land on a message.
