A tempa tale of a southern bells (shades of Scarlett O'Hara) by a practical hand at slick romance. The story of Lona Henry, lovely and hard, egotistical and courageous, and devastating. The buys her way into Richmond society, ignoring those who laugh behind her back, and getting her revenge by marrying Jeff Chancellor, F.F.V., and liberal Congressman with a future. She loves him, within her capacity, but her threa his reputation and, when scandal looms close, she sacrifices herself for his future. Glamorous, amorous fare, for rentain chiefly.
