"It's a man's world," young Mary Kilburne had been told, "and a woman could only find a place in it." And find a place she did!

Making her way to America's golden shores with nothing except a few pennies and her pride, the ambitious, chestnut-haired beauty was unwilling to give in to despair or concede to defeat. She was determined to work hard, to become rich, to rise above the Lower East Side squalor - even to give up a once-in-a-lifetime passion if it meant that she would succeed.

From the black mists of the moors to the elegance and grandeur of Sutton Place, from an insecure scullery maid to a poised, prominent empire builder, through two world wars and the Great Depression, Mary Kilburne sacrificed happiness, betrayed her own heart, but always fought for THIS CHERISHED DREAM.
