Summary
  • Cecilia is a poor waitress in a dumpy New Jersey diner who goes to movies to escape the realities of the Depression Era life. Her favorite is "The purple rose of Cairo." When the leading man Tom Baxter decides to be with Cecilia, confusion abounds
  • "Lonely Depression-era waitress Cecilia is hopelessly addicted to Hollywood movies. Spellbound by her new favorite, The Purple Rose of Cairo, Cecilia is astonished when the leading man suddenly walks off the screen to meet her. Wooed by his charm, Cecilia finds herself falling for him--until she meets the real actor who plays him. Romanced by both a fictional character and a famous star, Cecilia struggles to locate the shifting line between fantasy and reality, only to discover that sometimes it's just a heartbeat away."--Container
