Jodi Marquette is poor, idealistic and brilliantly talented. But on her first venture into the chic art world of New York City, the highly influential gallery owner Morgan Smith rejects all of her lovely bird paintings. Still, from the galleries of Manhattan and elegant beach houses of the Hamptons, in gritty lesbian bars and exclusive private parties, the attraction between the two women is too powerful to resist. Morgan and Jodi come together only to pull apart again, finding both fleeting harmony and tragic misconceptions in one another. In the tradition of Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice, EGRET tells the story of an intelligent, inexperienced young woman who must confront her own insecurities before she can meet a wealthy, powerful older lover on equal ground.
