A story of family... the Osbornes -- two sisters and a brother -- united by family ties but split apart by different dreams. Lara, the happy young wife, longs for the family that will make her life whole. Connie, wild and lovely, is more like her brother Eddy -- bright, ambitious, and ready to seize all that life has to offer. A story of choices... Connie is looking for wealth -- to make or to marry. Lara, staying behind in a small Ohio town, finds everything she cherishes threatened by fate and by her own blind commitment. And Eddy, as Wall Street's "wonder boy," can make millions... if he ruthlessly uses his family and friends. A story of marriages... Lara's held together by devotion, Connie's shattered by infidelity and betrayal, and Eddy's rocked by shame and prison. Torn by conflicting loyalties, they are a family caught in the tides of scandal... and swept toward a fate where dreams may end or be born again...

Eddy, wanting to really be someone big in the fiance world does what he thinks is okay, because it is not hurting anyone begins to spin a web of decption. Lara and her husband is just happy with the way things are. They have the means to become very rich, but needs pushing by eddy to go after it. Connie on the other hand is just looking for real love. But at the same time, she has a taste for the finer things in life. Look where that ends up getting her. You will be on the edge of your seat for this page turner.
