Bells of Avalon by Libbet Bradstreet
[Audiobook Given in Exchange for Honest Review]
Thrust into a limelight she never chose, Katie’s been paired with Danny for as long as she can remember. Films, roadshow tours, and drugstore appearances…post-war Hollywood can’t seem to get enough of the sweetheart team. They’ll even fall in love one day. But young love seldom survives the fog wake of Los Angeles–a place of dreams and nightmares.
Bells of Avalon was gorgeous and tragic with just a tiny glimmer of hope. This story has that softened, almost blurry feel of closeups in those movies from the 1950s and 60s, where everything is all gentle hues and violins. There is always that touch of sorrow in the romance… and that’s how this book felt to me.
