    "I love all the movies Bob has made of my books, and I especially enjoy seeing what is known as the 'rough cut'. I remember watching 'Everything to Gain', and thinking what a splendid production it was. I was thrilled to see my characters come alive on the screen. Later that evening, over dinner, Bob gave me the famous blue-leather box from Harry Winston. Inside was a gorgeous sapphire and diamond ring. 'In lieu of applause for being up there on the screen,' Bob said. 'You produced the movie and should have the applause. And the ring!' I answered. He just laughed. The sapphire ring was always a lovely reminder of that book and movie for years. I wore it a lot, and now some other lucky lady can do the same."

    Gift from Robert Bradford in 1994 to commemorate his movie of "Everything to Gain".
