By day, Mary Ballard is lady’s maid to Charlotte Walden, wealthy and accomplished belle of 19th-century New York City high society. Mary loves Charlotte with a passion beyond a servant’s devotion, but Charlotte would never trust Mary again if she knew about her past. On her nights off, Mary sheds her proper lady’s maid persona and becomes her true self — Irish exile Maire O’Farren — in the arms of a prostitute and as drinking companion to members of a dangerous secret society. But Charlotte has a secret of her own. And when the truth of their overlapping double lives begins to unravel, Mary finally learns that her fate lies in her hands alone.
