But Lydia inherited moreMoreLinda Neary Keeling, living with her two daughters, Frances and Taffy, a life of genteel poverty in Baltimore, inherited her childhood home in North Carolina and returned to take possession of the house and a small fortune. But Lydia inherited more than a fortune, for across the river were the Cavitts, bitter enemies of the Nearys for two generations. Frances and Taffy were prepared by Lydia to perpetuate the enmity, but Cavitts young sons, Foxworth and Zachary, had different ideas. One for love and one for money, the pursued the Keeling daughters when Lydias back was turned. Zacharys wife Tulia, brought up in Paris, did not interfere with the pursuit of Keeling money to invest in a cigarette factory, but she deeply resented her brother-in-laws suit for the love of a Keeling daughter. Tulias infatuation for Fox strengthened her determination to possess him - or ruthlessly destroy him - and she bided her time with the tenacity of an experienced woman who is confident of ultimate success. To the resolution of this situation Helen Topping Miller brings her finest talent for writing historical fiction. A dramatic new story of love and adventure.
