Beautiful, elegant, wealthy, and charming, Caroline has an effect on every male who crosses her path. As a young woman in the 1920s, she is drawn to the freedom of the Jazz Age, yet chooses a safe marriage that restores her to the proper Edith Wharton-like society to which she was born. Restless in her conventional role, she discovers the Bohemian art world and meets Nicholas Leone, the dashing, handsome, brilliant young painter who will change her life.She becomes his patron and plans his first big exhibition, where Nick unveils his masterpiece - a shocking nude portrait of Caroline in a compromising position. Did she pose for the painting? Was she involved in a great love affair? Or is she a victim of her own generosity?Horrified, betrayed, and almost ruined socially, Caroline insists on defending her innocence, a decision that ensnares those closest to her: her adoring younger brother, Will; the powerful district attorney, Lawrence Sloane; and her loyal husband, Harry. The secrets, lies, and manipulations that result will haunt her for the rest of her life, following her into the new era of the 1960s and beyond - until this great masterpiece of art, missing for decades, is unveiled for a second time.
