All the Stars in the Heavens by Adriana Trigiani
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
The book had an interesting premise - a historical fiction depicting the love affair between Loretta Young and Clark Gable. But that's about all it had. The story was never given any depth. It read as a summary of events, and it was unclear who the focus character was meant to be. The book began with Alda, a young postulant in a San Francisco convent, who is released back into the world to become Gretchen "Loretta" Young's assistant. Had the author continued the story with Alda as the core character, I think it would have been a vastly more engaging story. Instead, the narration bounced around, and it was very hard to stay engaged with the recitation of facts presented by the author.
