In 1927 while on a Grand Tour, Spencer A. Wentworth, a young scion of a wealthy old banking family of Long Island, New York Gold Coast, receives an urgent telegram to come home immediately. No explanation.
Upon arriving home, he was handed a huge responsibility that he was not prepared for.
As the stock market begins to collapse, he is plagued with worries that the family will lose everything including Wentworth Hall, his ancestral home. Honoring his promise to preserve it, he is determined to save Wentworth Hall at any cost including the loss of the woman he loves.
It is a tale of responsibility, love, betrayal and suspense during the Gilded Age with a backdrop of a way of life long gone.
Until next time. Stop and smell the roses.
