Summary
Dinah Lasker grew up in the shadow of her sister, Veevi, a beauty and emerging star who enchanted the Hollywood set. But Veevi's home was also a hotbed of political activity, owing to her marriage to Stefan Ventura, a Bulgarian filmmaker and high-profile Communist. At the end of the 1930s, when things go badly for him in Hollywood, Ventura and Veevi flee to Paris and into the lengthening shadows of Hitler and fascism. Cut to 1951, when Dinah is subpoenaed by the House Un-American Activities Committee, which threatens to ruin her husband, Jake's successful career as a Hollywood writer, producer, and director unless she cooperates. Can Dinah live with herself if she names Veevi in order to save her husband and preserve her idyllic married life? The choices Dinah makes set in motion an unforgettable chain of events.
