From the first page of —an emotionally satisfying and wholesome historical romance—I was immediately transported to turn-of-the-century New York City. I felt as if I were alongside our heroine, Caroline St. James, sailing past the Statue of Liberty, anxiously waiting to begin the rigorous registration process at Ellis Island. As I read further, I was captivated by the elegant and sophisticated Gilded Age setting and the author’s fresh take on inspirational fiction.

To settle the family score, Caroline infiltrates her grandfather’s privileged world, hoping to sabotage his business from the inside. But as she sets her plot in motion, she meets Jackson Montgomery, a virtuous man who is struggling to recover from a family scandal of his own. As their friendship grows, and Caroline begins to piece together the motives that led her family to turn its back, she is forced to make a decision: Should she risk everything in the name of justice? Or can she look toward the future and let love and forgiveness guide her instead?
