Max agrees to play the gala and it looks like smooth sailing for Sheila-until she promises a museum-quality piece of glass for the auction, offers her best friend the catering job, goes nose-to-nose with her Manhattan socialite co-chair, and begins a good-hearted affair with the charitys Executive Director, Lockhart Dixon.
Hearts break and emotions are pushed to the limit in this riveting story of one womans attempt to deal with loves past and present, family, business, and high-powered social pressures. Elin Hilderbrands unique understanding of the joys and longings that animate womens lives will make this her newest summer bestseller.
