Limelight ~ by Melody Carlson

Limelight by Melody Carlson is a great lesson in learning that it’s never too late to change. And in learning what is really and truly important in life. It was initially difficult to enjoy or empathize with the main character in this book, but eventually I found myself really pulling for her. Carlson does a wonderful job of showing how the truth we hide or deny, is the very thing that we need to be set free.

The characters were quirky, and there was an unexpected depth to the struggles that were experienced. Though Claudette was a past-her-prime, former beauty, who was very much a snob, she faced some tough things, overcame adversity, learned a few great life lessons (at 82 no less!) and discovered that sometimes you really can go back home and that less really is more.

This book was provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.


By Melody Carlson

Claudette Fioré used to turn heads and break hearts. She relished the glamorous Hollywood lifestyle because she had what it takes: money, youth, fame, and above all, beauty. But age has withered that beauty, and a crooked accountant has taken her wealth, leaving the proud widow penniless and alone.

Armed with stubbornness and sarcasm, Claudette returns to her shabby little hometown and her estranged sister. Slowly, she makes friends. She begins to see her old life in a new light. For the first time, Claudette Fioré questions her own values and finds herself wondering if it’s too late to change.
