“A breathtaking read that will transport you over the rainbow and into the heart of one of America’s most enduring fairy tales and the hardscrabble life that inspired it. . . . A dream of a book you’ll want to savor and share!”—Lisa Wingate, author of Before We Were Yours
Finding Dorothy is a richly imagined novel that tells the story behind The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the book that inspired the iconic film. The story is told through the eyes of author L. Frank Baum’s intrepid wife, Maud, the daughter of a leading suffragette. It sweeps from the Baum family’s hardscrabble days in South Dakota—which inspired Oz—to the Hollywood film set where Maud first meets a Judy Garland, who would become her unlikely friend.
