Heiress Rosie Worth has transformed into starlet Roxy Price, an actress at the top of the world in the Golden Age of Hollywood. Her studio mogul husband, Dash and the fans that love her have almost made her forget her painful past. But soon, Roxy faces disappointing losses that could mean the end of everything she’s worked so hard for, until the dashing Rolfe Van Horne swoops in, promising her a role that is sure to save her career.
Rolfe’s film takes Roxy overseas, and it is there that her feelings for him begin to grow. She discovers that she encountered him very long ago, before she was married, before she experienced a heartache she will never forget. And while Rolfe sometimes seems to share her growing feelings, he begins to push her away. But is he simply trying to protect her from growing trouble in Europe – an explosive conflict that could jeopardize both of their lives?
Duchess, Susan May Warren’s third installment in the Daughters of Fortune series, truly brings us full circle. Wrapping up a story that has spanned three generations, the novel does not disappoint. Readers will find resolution in Rosie’s story, as she learns where her true inheritance lies; not in the fame and fortune she has so long coveted, but in the redemption and hope that only God can provide.
