A small-town boy with working-class roots, Thomas is a stranger in this opulent world of private jets and sprawling mansions.
Then he meets Matilda Duplaine. Matilda is a beautiful and mysterious young woman who has never left the lush Bel-Air estate where she was raised. Thomas is immediately entranced by the enigmatic girl, and the two begin a secret love affair. But what starts as an enchanted romance soon unravels a web of secrets and lies that could destroy their lives - and the lives of everyone around them - forever.

Timeless, romantic, and utterly absorbing, it is a mesmerizing tale of privilege, identity, and the difficult choices we make in the pursuit of power.
