The life of Hollywood’s biggest star, Evelyn Hugo, comes to life. In a world of fiction that doesn’t seem too far from the truth, Taylor Jenkins Reid highlights the highs and lows of a 1950’s film star and her extraordinary love life. It is fascinating, breathtaking, and frustrating all at once and I found myself wishing that Evelyn Hugo was real.

Monique Grant is in her mid-thirties, newly divorced, and a struggling journalist holding a low-ranking job at Viviant, a newspaper company in New York City. Monique felt like a failure with no prospects ahead of her. That was until Evelyn Hugo, the biggest Hollywood star reaches out and specifically requests Monique to write a cover story for her gown auction. Monique is just as surprised as her boss that Eveyln, a huge icon, would want her. Monique quickly realizes that Evelyn has other plans and wants Monique to write her autobiography detailing the good, the bad, and the ugly about her life in the spotlight.

Evelyn goes back in time to the 1950s when she began her career as a young actress and tells her truth. Evelyn is famous for having had seven husbands in her life, and Monique knows that the readers will have one question: “who was the love of her life?”.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo shows the glamour and sacrifices that Hollywood actors made for glory and fame. With a stunning turn of events, Monique realizes that Evelyn Hugo is a human just like everyone else and even her fame and prestige can’t shield her from the ugliness of the world.

If you are looking for a love story intertwined with a dazzling part of American culture, I strongly recommend that you check out The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.
