I''ve never met a more irritating, outrageous, ill-mannered, homely child in my life. She was about nine years old, chubby, with freckles and a mop of reddish hair that looked as if it was never properly combed.
She wore hideous horn-rimmed eyeglasses, and so help me God, that child looked down her nose at us. The woman''s honey-blond hair was caught up in an elegant chignon, with soft tendrils at her ears framing a face of flawless, vivid beauty.
Her cheekbones were slightly high, her nose small, her chin delicately rounded, but her eyes were her most arresting feature. Beneath the arch of her brows, long curly lashes fringed eyes that were a startling, luminous turquoise blue. Whitworth will see you in a few minutes," the secretary said politely, careful not to stare.
Lauren Danner looked up from the magazine she was pretending to read and smiled. Fourteen years had not dulled the painful memory of her two days at his magnificent Grosse Pointe mansion, where the entire Whitworth family, and even the servants, had treated Lauren and her mother with insulting scorn.
The phone on the secretary''s desk buzzed, sending a jolt through Lauren''s nervous system.

How, she wondered desperately, had she landed in this impossible predicament? If she''d known in advance that her father was going to call Philip Whitworth, she could have dissuaded him.
But by the time she knew anything about it, the call had been made and this interview already arranged. When she''d tried to object, her father had calmly replied that Philip Whitworth owed them a favor, and that unless Lauren could give him some logical arguments against going to Detroit, he expected her to keep the appointment he''d arranged.
Lauren laid the unread magazine in her lap and sighed.
Of course, she could have told him how the Whitworths had acted fourteen years ago. But right now money was her father''s primary concern, and the lack of it was putting lines of strain into his pallid face. Recently the Missouri taxpayers, caught in the vise grip of an economic recession, had voted down a desperately needed school-tax increase.
As a result, thousands of teachers were immediately laid off, including Lauren''s father. Three months later he had come home from another fruitless trip in search of a job, this time to Kansas City.

He had put his briefcase down on the table and had smiled sadly at Lauren and her stepmother. Absently he''d massaged his chest near his left arm as he had added grimly, "Which may be for the best, because I don''t feel strong enough to push a broom. Even though her father was now recovering, that moment had changed the course of her life.
No, Lauren corrected herself, she had been on the verge of changing the course herself. After years of relentless study and grueling practice at the piano, after obtaining her master''s degree in music, she had already decided that she lacked the driving ambition, the total dedication needed to succeed as a concert pianist.
She had inherited her mother''s musical talent, but not her tireless devotion to her art. Lauren wanted more from life than her music. In a way, it had cheated her of as much as it had given her. What with going to school, studying, practicing and working to pay for her lessons and tuition, there''d never been time to relax and enjoy herself. By the time she''d turned twenty-three she''d traveled to cities all over the United States to play in competitions, but all she''d seen of the cities themselves were hotel rooms, practice rooms and auditoriums.
She''d met countless men, but there was never time for more than a brief acquaintance. She''d won scholarships and prizes and awards, but there was never enough money to pay all her expenses without the added burden of a part-time job. Still, after investing so much of her life in music, it had seemed wrong, wasteful, to throw it away for some other career. Her father''s illness and the staggering bills that were accruing had forced her to make the decision she''d been postponing.
With her husband encouragement, who buying her a new typewriter, she decided to try writing a novel herself in Kobo ebook. She remarried a third time with Don Smith, a engineer and professional golfer, and moved to Friendswood, but the marriage ended friendly after three years in May
