Weekly Windup: Comment to Win A Question of Destiny by Anita Higman
Lucy O’Brien is about to be given ten millions dollars.
Multi-millionaire, Ian Chalmers, has decided to give a portion of his wealth to Lucy because of her courageous and self-sacrificing lifestyle. With these sudden riches, Lucy is given a chance to rise above her meagre income and enter a whirling and glittering world of comfort and privilege. Since Ian is concerned that Lucy may struggle with this unexpected change in fortune, he hires his assistant—the solitary and stony Andrew Whitfield—to watch over Lucy as she adapts to her new way of life.
Will this windfall be Lucy’s undoing, or can she rise above the temptations within Houston’s high society and choose to be a nobler version of herself? And will Andrew Whitfield cause her to close the door on her dreams, or is he the key that opens the rest of Lucy’s destiny?
