Chloe, a classy, sharp-witted belle with no shortage of suitors, doesn’t have to be told that she may be her family’s only hope of salvation. Though worn out by deceit, Chloe is driven by filial duty and habituated privilege to begin calculatingly courting Dritsas, a rich American émigré from her social set, much to the chagrin of lovelorn Markos (“the eternal best friend”) and newcomer Gelanos, a heart-stealing widower. Her romantic schemes are interrupted by an accident involving Vasilakis, son of their long-suffering maid Katerina, who has loyally guarded the family secret disgrace and gone without pay for months. Now she needs money to foot the hospital bills and is deeply hurt to discover the extent of her employer’s selfishness.
