Summary, etc.: In 1893, former robber baron and railroad mogul Sam Driver knocks on the door of a fabled Newport resort together with his daughter Jenny, determined not to be turned away a second time. The first time his "new money" was tainted by his dealings with some of the most dishonest businessmen of the era, and one enemy with a pedigree of wealth and position vows to slam every door in Sam's face. But Sam plunges in, determined to win a place in the strange world of Newport's brief summer season, presided over by social gadflies Ward McAllister and the androgynous Harry Lehr, both of whom will assist the Drivers--for a price.
