Though born in the United States, Anne Douglas Sedgwick moved to England at the age of 9 and lived there for the rest of her life. Reflecting her own upbringing spanning the New World and the Old World, Sedgwick often concocted plots that juxtaposed these two cultures. In Adrienne Toner, an American girl finds herself navigating the unfamiliar territory of English society.
Brilliant pianist Madame Okraska and her adopted daughter Karen have a tight-knit relationship. When Karen finds herself falling for wry and sardonic attorney Gregory Jardine, Madame Okraska -- who is used to unquestioning deference from her adoring fans -- isn't particularly pleased. Can love flourish amidst these trying circumstances?
