Born to a poor Catholic family near Boston, Maggie Kearney rises from rags to riches, using those who can help, and discarding all who cannot. Eager to bury her poverty- stricken past with its shameful secret, she lets nothing stand in her way, not family, not love, and certainly not honesty.
Loving her too much is her husband Harry Logan who struggles to adhere to his grandmother’s teachings of honesty and integrity while raising a family and climbing the corporate ladder. Against the background of the stock market’s frenzied rise through the 1990s, Maggie and Harry share their passion while coping with family tragedy and financial crisis.
As the millennium ushers in a new century, loyalties falter and the bonds of love are tested. When faced with the cost of winning, are Harry and Maggie willing to pay the price?
