About this item

Two generations of Quincy women - a bewitching Jazz Age beauty and a young lawyer - bound by a spectacular and mysterious Indian necklace.

Always the black sheep of the tight-knit Quincy clan, Nell is cautious when she's summoned to the elegantly shabby family manor after her great aunt Loulou's death. A cold reception from the family grows chillier when they learn Loulou has left Nell a fantastically valuable heirloom: a stunningly ornate necklace from India. More than just a piece of jewelry, the necklace links Nell to a long-buried family secret. As predatory relatives begin circling and art experts begin questioning the necklace's provenance, Nell turns to the only person she thinks she can trust - the attractive and ambitious estate lawyer who definitely is not part of the old money crowd.

Ambrose Quincy brought the necklace home from India in the 1920s as a dramatic gift for May, the woman he intended to marry. Upon his return he discovers May has married his brother Ethan, the "good" Quincy, devoted to their father. As a gesture of friendship, Ambrose gives May the necklace anyway - reigniting their passion and beginning a tense love triangle.

From a robber baron's Midwestern manor to a maharaja's palace, from a 1920s gymkhana to a modern-day speakeasy, from a family who feels like the enemy to a stranger who feels like kin, The Necklace is the intelligent, intoxicating story of long-simmering family resentments and a young woman who inherits a secret much more valuable than a legendary necklace.
