July 15, 2012 - PRLog -- What happens when the son of high society Boston old money marries the nouveau riche New York daughter of immigrant trades folk? Will there be smooth sailing? Will there be rough waters?  Will this union withstand the test of time – or will the two lovers fall victim to the poison of power?

From the moment Cordelia Conner is born in New York in 1890, her seamstress mother vows her daughter’s life will be far better than hers.  She dreams that one day, her daughter will become a lady of quality and marry a wealthy man—and she is prepared to dedicate her life to make it happen. Hundreds of miles away, young Kevin Newkirk is growing up in a prominent Boston family, accustomed to a life of prestige. He is keenly aware that he is the last Newkirk male and in need of a suitable wife to provide him with a son to carry on the family name. In love with a woman whose heritage is questionable, Kevin has no idea that Cordelia even exists.

When fate brings Kevin and Cordelia together during a weekend at a summer home, he decides she is the answer to his dilemma. Cordelia sees Kevin as the means to fulfill her mother’s burning passion. Their relationship seems destined to be a match made in heaven.

The first book of The Bridgewater Chronicles, STAIRWAY TO MY HEART introduces us to the Newkirk family, an emblematic turn-of-the-century affluent family and their devoted household staff. Marchetto’s trademark passion and quixotic characters will keep you spellbound as you navigate the twists and turns of this intricate drama.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be captivated by Kevin and Cordelia – and taken in by the sweet sensuality of Marchetto’s Bridgewater Chronicles.
