Eleanor Hart had made a brilliant marriage in New York, but it ended in a scandalous divorce and thirty days in Sierra Tucson rehab. Now she finds that, despite feminist lip service, she will still need a husband to be socially complete. Ellie must navigate the treacherous social terrain where old money meets new: charitable benefits and tequila body shots, inherited diamonds and viper-bite lip piercings, country house weekends and sexting. Through one misstep after another, Ellie's options narrow, her future prospects contract, and she faces a desperate choice. Debut author, Claire McMillan transforms Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth in a modern story of one woman's struggle with independence and love.
