Finding Dorothy by Elizabeth Letts
At first, I thought this book would be about the making of the movie, The Wizard of Oz, and it is about that but so much more. The story jumps between Maud Baum's life and her involvement on the set of the movie fiercely guarding her husband's legacy and the young woman chosen to play the character at the heart of the story, Dorothy. The story of Maud and her warm-hearted, theatrical husband L. Frank Baum brings the WIZARD OF OZ to life. The story parallels their lives, hopes and dreams of a better place just over the rainbow and a little girl who needed rescuing. It is also a story of strong women who weren't afraid to stand up for what they thought was right and to fight for those who couldn't fight on their own, namely a young actress named Judy Garland. The author's research and imagination come through and she has given a powerful voice to the lovely Maud Baum.
