She was without background or breeding, crude and intellectually undiscerning. Had she not been ambitious and extremely pretty, she would have married one of the mill workers and lived in poverty, bearing child after child.But Stella chanced to meet Stephen Dallas just at the height of her young beauty and just at the depths of her personal tragedy and despair.

He married her because he thought he loved her. He found that he had really married her to escape loneliness, that he could noy teach her the fine points of good taste, that she was a handicap to his social and business success.Had it not been for their strange, lovely daughter, Laurel, there would probably have been a simple divorce and a new start in life for each of them.

But they loved Laurel, and Stellas love was that profound emotion of motherhood for which no sacrifice is too great, no hardship too degrading.This novel tells of a kind of woman who is a part of every city, town, and village where there are social barriers. It is the story of a woman misjudged, condemned by gossip, forced by circumstances to make a heart breaking sacrifice so that her beloved daughter could escape social ostracism and attain happiness.
