Claire, grieving the recent deaths of her husband and aunt, has chosen a new direction in life. She will manage the bookstore in Old Sacramento and live in the Victorian house her aunt has bequeathed her. Charmed at discovering scene after scene in Sacramento of what she views as veritable movie sets occupied by an array of quirky characters, Claire feels swept up onto an unlikely sound stage with the other actors she encounters. In the sometimes exhilarating, sometimes horrifying movie script in her mind, she plays a part she would never have imagined, a role so different from her previous life that she hardly recognizes herself.At a time when women are beginning to grow confident about buying their own homes, learning to run businesses, and campaigning for?and winning?elective offices, the friends Claire makes, the love she finds, and her accomplishments in an unfamiliar world comprise an engrossing narrative of an intrepid young woman, a government agency run amok, and a unique and unexpected solution to a difficult problem.
