Mourning Glory Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Mourning Glory

It's about an attractive Palm Beach woman in her thirties Grace Sorentino who is fired from her job at Saks, and, with little money and a teenage daughter who wants the better things in life, devises a plan to lure a rich widower to her side. By going to funerals of their recently deceased wives, of all things! Of course, things don't quite turn out as planned (she didn't factor falling in love with her prey into the equation) and Grace, the heroine of the novel, must deal with the consequences.
