Who is Lucy? Polished and sophisticated, a woman at the head of a major corporation, California’s woman of the year. But who is she really?
Only a chosen few know of the girl born on a scrub-pine farm to a mother who gave herself away for a bottle of booze.
A girl who had brains but no opportunity with a sales clerk job, and a drunken mother to care for.
Only one man can help her to escape her life of poverty but he is a monster, a cruel, abusive man who demands her every obedience. She hates him with a passion, but she also responds to him with a deep, sexual submission.
This is the story of Lucy. A woman who succeeds beyond her wildest expectations, but is the price she pays too high?
