Pursuing the career of her dreams, Sydney Hamilton struggles with disinheritance when she marries against her father's wishes, and after she later divorces, Sydney returns to her beloved home to defend her legacy

Blackwell North Amer
Like all the Hamiltons before her, Sydney Hamilton was born on Oberon Island. The Island in the Chesapeake Bay stood witness to a family history that dated back to colonial America. Pirates had invaded it, the underground railroad had stopped there, glittering fetes had been held within its walls. Oberon held all the enchanted memories of childhood. And now in 1948, as twenty-one-year-old Sydney divides her time between classes at Wellesley and weekends in New York, she believes Oberon will always be there - as a haven from all the challenges the world can offer an ambitious young woman with every advantage of wealth and privilege.
Then Sydney meets struggling actor Jordan Eliot, and another world beckons. Cut off by her father - the owner and publisher of the New York Chronicle - Sydney travels from a cold-water flat in Manhattan to a Hollywood mansion...only to discover that all the glitter of Jordan's steadily rising star merely serves to diminish the luster of her own.
Restless and discontented as the wife of a Hollywood actor, Sydney returns to New York with her two small daughters. There, she confronts her father and demands her rightful place on the family newspaper. But as she fulfills one dream beyond her wildest expectations, other, more intimate dreams will be challenged. Yet through it all, her love for Jordan Eliot will endure.
