As the freedom of the Jazz Age transforms New York City, the iridescent Mrs. Theresa Marshall has fallen in love with Captain Octavian Rofrano, a handsome hero of the Great War. A deeply honorable man, Octavian wants to marry her, but divorce for a woman of Theresa's social standing is out of the question although she has an understanding with her husband. But their relationship subtly shifts when her bachelor brother, Ox, decides to tie the knot. When Octavian meets Sophie, the intended, he falls under the spell of the pretty ingA©nue. As the love triangle of Theresa, Octavian, and Sophie progresses, it transforms into a saga of divided loyalties, dangerous revelations, and surprising twists.

Professional reviews

"Beatriz Williams returns to the fertile ground of early-twentieth- century New York high society. There are two main characters from whose points of view the story is told, Theresa and Sophie, whose sections are narrated by Mia Barron and Adrienne Rusk. In Barron's exceptional narration, she delivers the exact right attitude for Theresa, both brash and somewhat vulnerable. In contrast, Rusk's portrayal of Sophie is, by and large, so dry and emotionless that it significantly slows the book down or discourages listening altogether. Narrator Barbara Goodson also has a small but well-done part as a gossip columnist who serves to move the story forward. J.L.K. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
