Mollie O'NeillBook - 1997
"Fired with the will to accomplish the impossible - to break free of her impoverished, ignorant upbringing - young Mollie becomes the ward of invalid Ophelia Niles and her husband, Dr. Emmet Niles, prominent members of Lynchburg, Virginia. For several years, her life in the beautiful mansion at Meadow Hill is a dream come true. But then - when Mollie blossoms into a beautiful young woman - disaster strikes. Dr. Niles, a dedicated physician with a tortured past and a passionless marriage, falls hopelessly in love with Mollie." "Although Mollie is heartsick about betraying Ophelia, she and Emmet are obsessed by their desire. Finally, Mollie makes a desperate decision that almost results in her death." "During her convalescence at her mountain home, Mollie discovers she is the love child of a famous American landscape painter. Rather than be defeated by revelations about her mother's secret love and Emmet's jealousy and lies, Mollie attempts to come to terms with her past, her father's legacy and her love for the Blue Ridge Mountains and its people."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
