Lily Pierron had done what she had thought was best for her daughter, Hope, and sent her away to school-away from the brothel she had raised her in. She didn't know Hope wouldn't want to return.

Hope erased her past and started again, ever fearful that someone would find out where she came from. She married a wealthy man, but the birth of her daughter brought fears from her past back to haunt her.

Her daughter, Glory, was never told of her ancestors. She grew into a skilled business woman running the family hotel but haunted by a past of her own with Victor Santos, a man from the wrong side of the tracks who could bring everything crashing down.

In a story that masterfully sweeps generations and wraps readers up into mystery and excitement, Erica Spindler will delight. (Apr., 512 pp., $5.99).
