Tawny-haired Laura Bellamy grew up feeling like Cinderella, in the shadow of her beautiful, pampered older sister Eliza. Laura longed for the day she would escape the drab, hardscrabble life of Manhattan in the Depression-the day she would marry the man she loved ... Until the night she found him with Eliza. But what might have been the end of a dream was the beginning of a triumph for Laura Bellamy. Determined never to feel like Cinderella again, she made her way upward in the glittering world of advertising, rising through the ranks to a level of power no woman had ever before attained. Envied, admired, adored, able to have whatever she wanted, playing by nobody's rules but her own, she achieved success beyond her wildest imaginings. Now only one man could make her remember who she really was: a woman made for loving.
"It was a man's world," young Mary Kilburne had been told, "and a woman could only find a place in it!' And find a place in it she did! Making her way to America's golden shores with nothing except a few pennies and her pride, the ambitious, chestnut-haired beauty was unwilling to give in to despair or concede to defeat. She was determined to work hard, to become rich, to rise above the Lower East Side squallor-even to give up a once-in-a-lifetime passion if it meant that she would succeed. From the black mists of the moors to the elegance and grander of Sutton Place, from an insecure scullery maid to a poised, prominent empire builder, through two world wars and the Great Depression Mary Kilburne sacrificed happiness, betrayed her own heart, but always fought for ... Her Cherished Dream.
