Ivana Trump is vibrant, passionate, and no stranger to the caprices of romance. Now she has written a marvelous novel about a woman of charm and courage whose life surpassed the grandest fantasies; the man whose daring ambition matched hers and made them the golden couple of the age; and her exclusvie circle of friends, whose devotion was priceless. Katrinka Graham had love, success and freedom. Yet deep inside, she carried the secret memory of the baby she had been forced to leave behind ... the child for whom she would als search ... for love alone.

Entering the Plaza Hotel Ballroom, Adam and Katrinka Graham radiated the dazzling energy of power, wealth and astounding achievement - two people in love and at life's pinnacle. Her jewels flashing in photographers' lights, Katrinka had traveled far since her dramatic escape from communist Czechoslovakea, when she skied down a Swiss mountain toward a new and exciting life...

Adam Graham was a vital, sexual man whos Midas touch had built his old-line shipping money into a huge personal fortune. With his gorgeous wife at his side, Adam demanded the best; no nouveaux ultra-riches were pushing him off the playing fied. Tempered by youthful hardships, Katrinka was also a bold entrepreneur whose intimate hotels in New York and London were acclaimed for their first-class luxurious service.

And in Manhattan's social whirl, from Aspen and Newport to London, the Riviera and Venice, Katrinka treasured a special group of friends: Daisy Elliott, a fun-loving lady whose aristocratic life provided the most unexpected shock of all; Lucia di Campo, a lavishly talented yacht designer married to a slick lawyer with sinister connections; Zuzka Havlicek, a Czech and fellow skier whose abundant sensuality led her into delicious sexual adventures; Margo Jensen, magazine editor and fashion doyenne who, through sheer force of will, made herself into the most interesting-looking woman in the world; Alexanda Ogelvy, a striking blue blood once enamored of Adam, now "trophy wife" of Wall Street takeover king; Natlie Bovier, French fashion wizard and tycoon's mistress, a seductress whose restless eroticism inspaired a Saudi prince to promise endless Arabian nights...

But no friend could protect Katrinka from Adam's mother, who had alienated her son with her icy, patrician contempt ... the weapon of choice she wielded mercilessly against Katrinka. Adam was the last of the Graham men, descended from the days of the American Revolution. Now his wife, this foreigner, this social parvenue, was failing to produce the requisite heir. Katrinka's struggle to conceive Adam's child was a sadness made sharper by the secret anguish of her past ... the baby she had borne in Europe, the child she could never forget. Adam, disappointed and restless, was becoming more and more remote. And Katrinka could not know that, among the friends she trusted most, one was about to betray her ... to snatch her fragile happiness suddenly, terribly, away ....
