Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one in the journalism community is more astounded than Monique herself. Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late '80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn's life unfolds, Monique begins to feel a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn's story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique's own in tragic and irreversible ways.

This is the story of an iconic Hollywood star that reminded me a bit of Elizabeth Taylor, who has been in the film industry for decades and has seven marriages under her belt. Journalist Monique Grant is sent to interview her for a charity event and ends up with the story of a lifetime. Evelyn's life story. Quite a coup as Ms. Hugo has been pretty private and secluded for a long time but interest in her has never faded.
Who, if any, of these husbands was the one true love of her life? Why did she choose Monique to write about her? She wants to set the record straight about what was most important to her in her life and Monique is the person that will do her story justice.
