A Memoir of Gloria Stuart's Apprentice
- #8419 in Biography & Memoir
Butterfly Summers: A Memoir of Gloria Stuart’s Apprentice is a vivid glimpse inside the art studio of Titanic actress Gloria Stuart as seen through the eyes of her great granddaughter Deborah. “Great Gloria,” also an accomplished painter, bonsai master, and fine printer, transforms Deborah’s life when she hires her as an artistic apprentice one summer to work on a set of hand-made artist’s books in the shape of giant, flying butterflies. Over the course of several summers, as Great Gloria nears her hundredth birthday, Deborah finds herself in a race against time to discover her own courage and help her great grandmother realize her dream of completing the books before it is too late. This memoir celebrates life and our ability to overcome doubt. It reveals Gloria’s likeness to Old Rose, the character she played in Titanic, in her passion, strength, humor, and deep love of the arts. Butterfly Summers will appeal to artists young and old, to book lovers, and to all others who long to know more about this spirited actress through her young protégée’s tale of their inspirational relationship.
