Family Album (novel)
|Media type||Print (Hardback & Paperback)|
The novel came out in March 1985 published by Random House. The novel tells the story of Faye Price (later Thayer), since World War II to her death in present day. It relates her professional life as an actress in Hollywood's golden era to finally becoming one of the first female directors in Hollywood. But more important to her is her family life, from her marriage, the birth of her children, separations and reconciliations with her husband, the struggles to raise her children, and the problems they go through once grown up until, in the end, they come through stronger from the ordeal.
Family Album was adapted into a TV movie in 1994 by NBC featuring Jaclyn Smith as Faye Price Thayer and Michael Ontkean as Ward Thayer. Though the plot was simplified from the original novel, it retains the basic story.
