An absorbing and gripping novel that goes behind the scenes of the 1963 movie Cleopatra…

Elizabeth was wearing a clinging silvery-white gown trimmed with long white ostrich feathers and very high heels and Diana could see that she emanated a kind of effortless star quality.

Rome 1961. Diana Bailey arrives on the film set of Cleopatra to begin work as a historical advisor and strikes up a friendship with Helen, a young make-up artist.

Tensions on the set are running high with the film in financial crisis and the paparazzi whipping up a media storm over the very public affair unfolding between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

As Diana adjusts to a new life away from her troubled marriage, she seeks solace in Ernesto, a charismatic member of the film crew. But as she grows closer to him, she spends less time with Helen who is harboring a dark secret of her own…

An enthralling story of love and passion, set against the backdrop of one of the most iconic films ever made.
