Outspoken Bea and well bred Vera could not have been more different but became fast friends at Vassar. They were joined at the hip until Bea got Vera in trouble and Vera threw Bea under the bus. Fast forward to 1923 and the penthouse apartment at a fashionable address in New York where Vera is married to the perfect man, wears perfect clothes, throws perfect parties and is perfectly bored. A chance encounter with Bea , a forged painting and the newly arrived mysterious muralist who demands absolute secrecy and flirting with Vera and suddenly Vera is not bored any longer. Did Bea choose the better path and will Vera continue to do what is expected of her but not what she wants?
For those who love reading about how the better half lives you will enjoy this look at high society in old money New York.
