About the book:
After Miss Wilhelmina
Radcliff’s father lost the family fortune in a poor investment decision,
she finds herself banished from the fashionable set within New York
society and directly into the wallflower section. Taking on work as a
social secretary in order to help with family expenses, she spends her
time penning out invitations to all the most sought-after events,
wondering if her life will ever improve.
While languishing one
evening at a ball given by one of the esteemed New York patriarchs,
Wilhelmina is appalled to discover that Mr. Edgar Wanamaker, her oldest
and dearest friend, and the first gentleman to offer her a marriage
proposal, has shown up at the ball unexpectedly, having been absent from
New York ever since she rejected his offer years before.
Miss Permilia Griswold,
the wallflower behind "The Quill" gossip column, knows everything that
goes on in the ballrooms of New York. When she overhears a threat
against the estimable Mr. Asher Rutherford, she's determined to warn
him. Away from society's spotlight, Asher and Permilia discover there's
more going on behind the scenes than they anticipated.
