With the fate of the Hollands resting on her shoulders, Elizabeth must choose between family duty and true love. But when her carriage overturns near the East River, the girl whose glittering life lit up the city's gossip pages is swallowed by the rough current. As all of New York grieves, some begin to wonder whether life at the top proved too much for this ethereal beauty, or if, perhaps, someone wanted to see Manhattan's most celebrated daughter disappear...
In a world of luxury and deception, where appearance matters above everything and breaking the social code means running the risk of being ostracized forever, five teenagers lead dangerously scandalous lives. This thrilling trip to the age of innocence is anything but innocent.

Good story, but. . .
The story is good, if you like period romances. It's well written, and I like the characters. But the recording is so chocked full of mispronunciations, it's hard to keep the serious tone of the story. Where there is a three syllable word, get ready for a laugh. Unfortunately, I can't give anyone full benefit of the humor. Think of the phrase: "Her feelings were annihilated and she sank into a deep sense of ennui." And let your imagination run wild.

Beautiful Historical Story
This book was a lovely soap opera style story packed full of excitement, romance, and drama. I loved the characters and the writing and narration were great. I've already spent a credit on the next one in the series.
