Publisher's Summary

Faith Simpson is born at the dawn of the twentieth century into a dynasty that gives her everything she will ever need - except her parents' love and attention. Often misunderstood, she trusts few as she grows up on the family's manicured Long Island estate. Just twenty-nine miles away, on lower Manhattan's dirty, crowded streets, Hope Lee's world is one of poverty and desperation. The scrappy child of hard-working Irish and Chinese immigrants has learned to fend for herself, until a terrible disaster thrusts her into a strange, new world of privilege.

When she meets Faith, Hope has faced enough loss to last a lifetime, and, like Faith, she has built an emotional wall to survive. Compelled by the tragic bonds of very different childhoods, they soon forge a strong alliance. But when Faith's father chooses Hope as his protégé, and, worse yet, both Faith and Hope fall in love with the same man, resentment and betrayal threaten their bond. Caught in the tumult of World War I, Wall Street, union fights, and changing women's roles, these two extraordinary women find that true fortune can't be bought or sold.

LOVED!

Such a wonderful book. So happy to have found it. What a great story, the character development was perfect and the writing kept you enthralled. I loved some of the historical elements she included. She did some great research. I can't wait to try some books by this author.

predictable story

I expected turns or twists in the story yet was able to predict all. Predictable

Eh!

Gives a feel for this period in history, but not enough to keep my interest. Read more like a soap opera that lost its edge - starting out about strong women and didn't sustain momentum.

Exciting

I could read this book ten times and it would have the same effect on me. I love it

struggled

shame to see how this Author has compromised in 3 years....three daughters was brilliant...this book has no depth. I did finish it to see if there would be some twist which would mind it but sadly not.
the Narrator sou ds like she was made for high drama...overdoing most words whereas Karen Peake o the last book was fab.

Enjoyed the story

I enjoyed the story although I think developing the characters a little more would have enhanced the story.
