He led a charmed life...until he wanted more.

Robb MacDaniel was an idealistic young teacher engaged to his high school sweetheart--when a sudden windfall, tragically earned, offered him the opportunity to go to law school and pursue a brilliant career. But nothing in Robb MacDaniel's life could have prepared him for the price of a dream come true. A job in a prominent law firm. Marriage to the boss's daughter. A wonderful family. A splendid home. Then the offers he couldn't refuse. Great success, greater hunger, greatest shame...

In her riveting new novel, New York Times bestselling author Belva Plain creates a compelling portrait of a man who had everything--and of the women who loved him. With profound insight she explores the power of temptation, betrayal, and greed--and the redemptive gifts of love.
