    I have given this book a 5, really the story should have been Finding Maude, I loved the story when the author was telling Maude's story, for me it lacked info on the Judy Garland story. There were little tidbits, and yes she did try & watch over Judy, but it was Maude's story that was the best part of the book. I know one reviewer said she

    I'm not particularly a fan of The Wizard of Oz film or the books, but I am a fan of the process of creating works of art. This novel captures perfectly the heyday of Hollywood and paints a wonderful picture of Baum himself. The undoubted star of the novel is Maud Gage (Baum), who supported her husband throughout his various careers
