Mitchell's new historical novel, set in Gilded Age New York, is filled with romance, adventure and amazing characters. Her protagonists are strong in spirit and their faith.
Clara Carter has been informed by her aunt that she will be making her society debut and that it is in her best interests to snag the richest, most eligible bachelor, Franklin DeVries. When Clara learns that her best friend also has her sights on Franklin, and she realizes all the hard work she has to do to win, she questions whether it's worth pretending to be someone she's not in order to secure her family's future.
