Book Description

Plot synopsis: The title speaks for itself. The story takes place in NY City in the late 19th Century. Claire Twining is the daughter of a genteel Britishman who suffers heavy investment losses resulting in a decline from middle class standing to impoverished circumstances. Claire vows to climb the social ladder of the NY gentry and the journey is a fascinating one; sometimes comical and at other times sad. You'll find yourself rooting for and against this heroine. This work is a lovely blend of the writing styles of Trollope and Fitzgerald. Enjoy!
