New Book: Chaplin's Girl


The enchanting story of 1930s Hollywood darling Virginia Cherrill, who traded international stardom for true love, due out as paperback in May.

"I loved Chaplin's Girl - a great read about someone I had absolutely no knowledge of. It was a delight from start to finish. What a life!" Derek Jacobi

"What a terrific accomplishment...I have just finished it and I'm knocked out by the portrait of Virginia and her life. I'm sad it's over – always my mark of a great read" Henry Jaglom, celebrated Hollywood director (Always, Last Summer in the Hamptons)

"It's a rags-to-riches story, a real-life version of the American Dream. It involves a beautiful girl, a Hollywood legend, the world's most handsome man, fame, wealth, aristocracy, sex, scandal, and ultimately the redemptive powers of love...extraordinary" Daily Express

"Seymour's beautifully measured, elegant biography does ample justice to its captivating subject" Good Book Guide
