Susan & Bill Hayes: "Like Sands Through the Hourglass"

"Like Sands Through the Hourglass" is the latest book we are featuring as we continue to countdown the 50 Greatest Soap Actresses.

Susan Seaforth Hayes and her husband, Bill, wrote this book which details their real life love story. Hayes is one of many actresses in the Top 50 who have written books or have books in the works.

Here's an excerpt from the book description: "When their on-screen pairing took place, the heat was on-intensified by the actors' budding offscreen romance. Fans were thrilled when Bill and Susan married in 1974. And two years later, when Julie and Doug tied the knot, millions tuned in to watch the big event. Students played hooky from school, workers called in sick, home-viewer reception parties were staged, gifts were sent - and Susan and Bill even graced the cover of TIME."

The Amazon product description adds: "They were the first 'super couple' of daytime drama. Millions watched as actors Susan Seaforth and Bill Hayes, playing Julie and Doug on DAYS OF OUR LIVES, fell in love on camera and off-igniting the hottest love story on daytime television in the 1970s and early '80s. Now, this witty, entertaining autobiography tells their fascinating story-from television's Golden Age to hit Broadway shows and soap opera stardom."

The book was released in 2005 by New American Library (NAL) and is 320 pages long.
