Book description
Grace Sorrentino, a gorgeous woman approaching forty who is determined to obtain a secure future for her and her daughter, adopts a new persona to catch a handsome and rich widower in Palm Beach, but soon the intricate web of lies she has spun forces her to face the consequences of her actions.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 157566898X, Hardcover)

Thirty-eight year old divorcee Grace Sorentino is in a precarious position, upwardly mobile in age, downwardly mobile in income. A cosmetician on Palm Beach's fashionable Worth Avenue, she barely makes enough to keep her 16-year old daughter Jackie in their tiny apartment. Still they're scraping by . . . until Grace loses her job. Hanging on by a thread, Grace reluctantly pursues a cynical and bizarre scheme to snare a rich widower. But when she finally comes within a hair's breadth of her goal, she finds herself enmeshed in a self-spun web of deception and danger that threatens to rob her of everything she holds dear.

Brilliant and bittersweet, daring, erotic and darkly humorous, Mourning Glory pulls readers into one woman's tangled web. Here is another blockbusting and timely novel about the cost of getting what you want -- when what you really want is priceless.
