Summary
Lily Bart enjoys an equitable standing within the New York City elite. Although she has received generous proposals from wealthy suitors, Lily remains single with hope for an honest and loving marriage. However, her life takes an unexpected twist when a nasty bit of gossip instigates her long descent down the social ladder. Lily escapes the city by joining an acquaintance on a cruise. But this, too, causes irreparable damage to her reputation, and soon Lily finds herself disowned and friendless
Summary
A portrait of American manners and morals at the turn of the century offers the saga of Lily Bart, a beautiful heroine who lacks one requirement for marrying well in New York society--her own money
