Gorgeous, elegant, wealthy, and intelligent, Caroline has an effect on every male who crosses her path. As a young woman in the 1920s, she escapes her claustrophobic marriage by supporting young artists. When a handsome, talented artist reveals a painting of her in a compromising position, she is almost ruined socially. Did she pose for the painting? Was she involved in a great love affair? Or was she a victim of her own generosity? This moment, and the secrets and lies that follow, will haunt her throughout her life - until this great masterpiece of art, which has been missing for decades, is unveiled for a second time.
