This is more than the chronicle of a love affair between a teen-aged girl and an “older” man.
For the man was Errol Flynn, Hollywood’s most appealing and notorious romantic.
The girl was Beverly Aadland, mature for her years, beautiful—highly impressionable.
And the writer is Mrs. Florence Aadland, Beverly’s mother, who saw their romance ignite, then explode into a flaming love affair she knew could ruin the life of the talented girl whose happiness she cherished above all things.
