“Eve is a financial guru in the Suze Orman mold, tough when she has to be to give you the straight dope on taking care of your money. Her daughter, Claudine, clumsy and socially awkward, works for her foundation but lives in her shadow. Then Claudine meets Henry, a theater artist and former high school classmate who hits her up unsuccessfully for some of that foundation dough — but suddenly Henry and Claudine are in love. Well, Claudine is anyway. Mother has big doubts about Henry and is determined to put him to the test. That’s the setup for RICH GIRL, Victoria Stewart’s funny and heartbreaking tale of financial and emotional savings and withholding.” —Joel Brown, The Boston Globe
