But once at her Aunt’s home, Lucinda begins to realize that her father’s greatest con was the way he had raised his only child. She sees, first hand, the havoc her father’s schemes play out in the life of good, innocent people.

Can she own up to past? Or will being respectable be her greatest act yet?
