Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.

As Evelyn Hugo says herself, she is not a nice person. She made up her mind, very young, that nothing would stop her from getting what she wants (achieving her dreams) and she lives her life by that mantra; regardless of who she has to step on or over to make it happen.

Her story is a little sordid, sometimes uninteresting, but how it all wraps up is a testament to her life and her legacy.

Reid takes us through her life via her 7 husbands and her true love and gives us a glimpse into old Hollywood and old values and beliefs.
