Abstract:

"From a lonely, hard-working existence, beautiful Loretta Worship is swept into a life of luxury when she marries older, sophisticated multi-millionaire Chukker Dunbar. Eagerly, she learns from Chukker how to "behave rich" as he initiates her into the posh pleasures of Palm Beach high society. But instead of open arms, Loretta is greeted with envy, suspicion--even hostility. The old guard refuses to accept this Cinderella outsider, and a vicious plot is unleashed to destroy her by exposing the secrets of her past. But everyone underestimates Loretta. For Loretta will dare to shake the smug, pampered town to its roots...to defy the powerful guardians of Palm Beach's treasured exclusivity... to triumph where no outsider has ever triumphed before" -- summary from fictiondb.
