Darling Sweetheart

A novel by

Twenty four year-old actress Annalise Palatine is getting her big break, in a Hollywood blockbuster opposite international film star Harry Emerson. However, it immediately becomes apparent that Emerson wants more from her than just her screen presence; the director is a lecherous Swede and, worst of all, she can't get under the skin of her part. Manipulated by forces she hasn't reckoned with, a shocking development in her private life adds to the pressure; more and more, she retreats into her unhappy past, plagued by haunting childhood memories and feelings for her dead father, the legendary comic actor David Palatine, whose pet name was the Darling Sweetheart of the title. This title is set behind the scenes on a chaotic film production in France, London and Ireland, tensions build until the ghosts of Annalise's past begin to catch up with her. But sometimes the ghosts from the past can take on very strange forms indeed.
