Beautiful sisters Elizabeth and Diana Holland rule Manhattan's social scene. But when the girls discover their family's status is far from secure, suddenly everyone- from the backstabbing socialite Penelope Hayes, to the debonair bachelor Henry Schoonmaker, to the spiteful maid Lina Broud is a threat to their golden future.
With the fate of the Hollands resting on her shoulders, Elizabeth Holland, a well-bred beauty must choose between family duty and true love. But when her carriage near the East River, the girl whose glittering life lit up the city's gossip pages is swallowed by the rough current.
This tangled web includes not one but two sets of star-crossed lovers; an upstairs/downstairs romance; a scheming social climber; a bitter servant girl; and oodles of money. Set in a world of luxury and deception, this thrilling trip to the age of innocence is anything but innocent. (from Publishers Weekly and Book Back Cover)
