"Carlette learned early on that life is not always easy, and everything has a price, but she's taken these hard lessons and gained strength from them. Now, she's returned to Cora's home, a refuge for single pregnant women in New York, where she gave birth to her own son after a failed teenage marriage. She is determined to help the young women there who have fallen prey to the scams of David Portugal. Carlette met David when she was a struggling single mother with dreams of a career on the stage. An unscrupulous con artist posing as a producer, David cast her in a play, only to trick her into his bed. It didn't take long for Carlette to discover David's dark side, but the damage had already been done. Now, he's moved on in search of more naive victims in Cora's home."--Page 4 of cover.
