In this book Claudette Fiore' finds out what really defines success and what real beauty is.

Her only choice is to move back to Silverton, live in the house her mother left her and rebuild a life. During this change in her life Claudette finds beauty is the inside of person, and its not about material things. She hasn't spoken to her sister in years, but finds peace between them through stories shared of their past. She finds friendship from those she wouldn't have given the time of day in Hollywood. Silverton shows her what family, friends and love really is. This a book about aging, about looking at yourself at a young age and thinking your a beauty, but then time takes over and you no longer look twenty. Claudette struggles with this, and she finds real beauty in herself as she changes when Silverton becomes not just a place she left, but one she now calls home. This book was given to me as a gift from Multnoma for the reading and review of its contents.
