Amelia Smith has grown up enjoying the best of everything. Her life of luxury is the envy of many. Her father comes from old money and has been wealthy all of his life. Her mother is the talk of Boston, the owner of a lucrative brothel that has made her mother a sort of rebel as a woman entrepreneur. When Amelia returns home from boarding school in Switzerland, she finds that her luxurious life has been turned upside down. Now on her own, Amelia has to figure out life for herself.
