Dreams Are Not Enough

(1987)
A novel by

 
Alice Hollister grows up a migrant crop picker so desperate to escape the many abusive men in her life that she runs away from her beloved sister to make a new life for herself. Shortly after, she marries Barry Cordiner, an aspiring lawyer who is part of a close-knit family in the movie business. Although her new in-laws take every opportunity to remind Alice that she isn't good enough for Barry or their family, Barry's uncle agrees to let Alice work as an extra at his studio, and she jumps at the chance. Alice is quickly noticed by directors and executives for her beauty and allure. Over the span of only a few months, she transforms herself into Alyssia del Mar, the ultimate screen love goddess. Her husband, however, is not supportive of her success, and their relationship deteriorates into his making constant emotional ploys forher attention. Meanwhile, Alyssia is pursued by Barry's cousin, Maxim, in whom she has no interest, but she finds herself falling in love with Maxim's handsome and unassuming brother, Hap. Despite a steamy affair, Alyssia and Hap are repeatedly separated by fate, and Alyssia realizes that fame is by no means the key to happiness.

From the glitter of Los Angeles to exotic and idyllic European locales, best-selling author Jacqueline Briskin takes readers behind the scenes of Hollywood's hottest scandals - to a world where passion is power, money buys everything, and...Dreams Are Not Enough.
