Comments from my Amazon editor about the new book “Two Lovers”:
“I think you’ve done a great job in your portrayal of Carole Lombard,
who comes across as someone who had an excellent sense of humor in the face of adversity and personal tragedy. I also found the descriptions of Hollywood life in the 1930s to be extremely well done and full of rich detail… This was a very enjoyable book to work on”: Editor, Bill (Amazon).
“I started reading it last night and found it hard to put down. Technically it is a work of
fiction, but Adam did a ton of research for the book and based what was going on with the couple’s lives and careers at this time on true facts. I especially enjoy having a chance to get inside Carole’s head, and learning what her life was like before Gable and when she was first on the verge of major stardom.” Bess Korey, Songwriter, DJ, Book Reviewer: Member of Carole Lombard FB.
“Their story is beautifully and accurately told. I love seeing life through Carole’s eyes, knowing the depths of her heart. She was such a fiery brilliant woman, so full of life, a true shining star. The love Russ and Carole shared was epic, rare, and wonderful to read. ” Publisher Leslie D. Stuart (Destiny Rose Editorials and Destiny Whispers Publishing). ” (not the publisher)
