Lily Bart enjoys an equitable standing within the New York City elite. Although she desires a comfortable life and 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. With her reputation plummeting, Lily escapes the city by joining an acquaintance on a European cruise. But this, too, causes irreparable damage to her reputation, and soon Lily finds herself disowned and friendless.

    " Pretty good. I definitely understand Lily's sense of always looking for something, but never being sure of what it is and, thus, not finding it. It's a bit sad. One of those no-wait-if-only-she-would-have-done-this-instead books. "
