By Brenda Whiteside
When seventeen year old Claire Flanagan is wrenched from her father and deposited at the Good Shepherd’s Home for Wayward Girls, all dreams for Hollywood stardom are lost. But when twenty year old Benjamin Russell helps secure her release, she starts to believe in a happy future with him…until she discovers his ex-girlfriend is pregnant.
In this post WWII coming of age novel, Claire discovers the silver screen can’t compare with the fight she takes on for the leading role in her own life.
Between the Pages of Honey on White Bread is a post WWII romance story filled with pain and hope. The story of Claire and Benjamin is heart wrenching at times. Claire is a teenage girl filled with hopes of going to Hollywood and becoming a big star. She falls in love with her best friend’s brother along the way and learns that she doesn’t need to go to Hollywood to find her leading man. I admit that I had trouble getting into this at first, but it was worth sticking with it. I found myself on the edge of my seat, rooting for Claire and Benjamin and hoping that they would find their happy-ever-after.
