She had more in common with her nemesis than she wanted to believe…
For Vivian Alderdice, the 20th century begins with a new start. Now a working girl and progressive reformer, she’s forsaken Nob Hill for the humbler surroundings of Waxwood’s commercial district. Rather than whittle away her days with other wealthy young women in gossip and idleness, she sells talcum powder and strawberry sodas to customers at Nettie’s Drugstore and helps working-class women improve their education at the Waxwood Women’s Lending Library and Reading Room.
But sometimes the scars of the past leave bitterness behind.
Harland Stevens, the man who ruined her brother’s life, appears like another specter in Vivian’s life. In spite of her vicious hatred toward him, Vivian finds herself compelled to help him escape a hell of his own.
But will it be his journey she follows through the dark tunnel of guilt and betrayal or her own?
Read the powerful conclusion of the Alderdice family saga set among the wealthy and the excessive at the close of America’s Gilded Age.
Discover for yourself whether Vivian will find peace and forgiveness at last.
