Description
From New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer comes a dazzling portrait of a young woman whose passion and ambition drive her to a fateful choice. Now available for the first time as an eBook! Catherine Eliot was born to a world of privilege and prestige, with a family whose last name and vast fortune provide her with access to almost anything she could wish for. But what Catherine craves most is independence. So while her friends settle into comfortable lives financed by doting parents and indulgent husbands, she moves to New York City, determined to make it on her own. Taking a demanding job in a bustling flower shop, she works hard and learns the trade until, with courage and determination, she's able to open Blooms, an exclusive floral boutique on the fashionable Upper East Side. Jetting from Manhattan's flower district to elegant East Hampton, from England's gorgeous countryside to Holland's world-famous flower auctions, Catherine is at the height of her career. But before she can bask in her hard-won success, her brother's desperate actions endanger her business. Meanwhile, while romanced by a charming Boston lawyer who whisks her off to Paris, Catherine also finds herself powerfully drawn to a secretive foreigner who takes her breath away. The question remains whether Catherine can confront her own demons to achieve the life she's long desired. Includes a captivating preview of Nancy Thayer's upcoming novel Nantucket Sisters!
