This is the tale of two sisters and the men who surround them. Cora the extrovert, the coquette, and Laura, her timid but loyal sister. Cora has every man in town between the ages of twelve and eighty competing for her affections, while poor Laura is in love with her sister's sweetest beau. What happens when Cora meets the handsome and ruthless Valentine Corliss, the only man who can beat her at her own game? The beauty of this novel is not the boiler-plate plot, but the well-drawn characters. Cora is selfish and vain, but is also brave and intelligent, and in the end, loyal to her family. Laura is meek, but writes passionately of her tragic love. The story and characters are rich and satisfying. Read this if you want a light, exciting story.--Submitted by Rilbets
