New Money by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal (2013) tells the tale of Savannah Morgan, a twenty-four-year-old assistant librarian in Charlotte, South Carolina. Her mother lead her to believe that she was the result of a wild and reckless liaison. But despite the fact that she never knew her father, and was looked down on by the local debutantes, Savannah has big plans to use her degree in literature to become a writer and head to the city. She worries whether or not she made a mistake when she turned down a recent marriage proposal.
Then she is contacted by a New York lawyer, who informs her that she is to inherit the estate of her father, Edward Stone, a billionaire media mogul who is recently deceased.
But there’s a catch-Savannah must move to New York and work at her father’s global news corporation in Manhattan. While trying to discover who her father really was and dodging her step-siblings-who want her gone, this modern Cinderella must decide to whom her heart will belong. This story of every girl’s dream come true points out the unique challenges of sudden wealth.
