In 1919, seventeen-year-old Cora Molly Estelle Marces was astonishingly beautiful, with an elusive personality and brushed sensuality. Robed in thick, dark hair and the ever-shrinking dresses of the time, simmered and sizzled, she engaged everyone around her as her dazzling personality successfully veiled the tumultuous family life she experienced on Broomes Island, Maryland.

The world was about to open up to her as a young adult in a new age. How could she handle the changing society she was living in? How would she process all the torment she had experienced with her family? Following the death of her father, Molly left for Baltimore and won the title of Miss Baltimore in the early 1920s. Shortly thereafter, Marc Tomasy, a tall, sculpted man, captured her heart. When they married, the world was theirs for the taking.

When the police later informed Molly that Marc had been arrested after being caught operating an appliance theft ring, Molly lost everything. She had no money and had to care for their three young sons during the Great Depression. Emotional storms terrorized her throughout her life, and after making some tragic choices and one shocking, unconscionable act, she became anything other than Miss Baltimore.
