Pulitzer-nominated author David W. Menefees new fiction novel presents a memoir by Charlotte Pickford, Marys mother, who vividly reveals their ambitions, triumphs, and tears. Thrill to the dazzling all-star cast of characters in the enduring story of an indomitable girls vision of victory, and her mothers untiring endeavors to achieve those dreams no matter what the cost.Before Mary Pickford became famous as a silent movie star, she was Gladys Smith, a little girl from Toronto, who earned her familys bread and butter by portraying children long after her own childhood passed. Sweet Memories fades in on Mary after ten years of touring the back roads of Broadway, when the sixteen-year-old, lovely as a spring rose, faces the greatest challenge of her life.Caught on a merry-go-round making movies, worldwide adulation elevates her onto an unsteady pedestal as The Biograph Girl, where labor and love mix like oil and water. During the tempest of adoration, only Charlotte stands by her side, and only Owen abides in her heart.Together, they join a band of independent filmmakers in Cuba, but none of them suspect that they have unwittingly set sail on an explosive adventure that will take a lifetime to forget.
