Summary
"New York City, 1914. Suzanne and Jada. Entwined as sisters. Talented and resourceful. Black and white. Wealthy employer and devoted maid. Together, they realize Suzanne's dream to see her name in lights on Broadway as she becomes the dazzling Ziegfeld Follies' rising new star. But Jada's superb voice and dance skills give her an unexpected shot at her own success--and her own life. And when a jealous Suzanne reveals a shattering secret, their friendship becomes a bitter rivalry. Floundering without Jada, Suzanne consoles herself with dashing suitors and champagne nights. Jada transforms into Harlem's hottest nightclub sensation, complete with financial security and a promising new beau. But when Suzanne is plagued with increasingly dangerous 'accidents,' and both women receive threatening notes, they discover just how cold and hard staying on top can be. Now in the face of relentless racism and vicious obsession, Suzanne and Jada make an uneasy alliance to find out the truth. And with the Follies' lavish world in peril and their careers on the line, their pursuit of love, success, and equality could cost more than they ever dreamed."--Page [4] of cover
