SHE CAME HOME A SMALL-TOWN CELEBRITY BUT THE DREAM SHE FOUGHT FOR MADE HER A WOMAN OF THE WORLD
Determined to repay those who had sacrificed for her, Laura Taylor turned her artistic drive to a fabulous dream. From the ruins of a Spanish mission, she would build a splendidly luxurious pleasure resort frequented by the world's most glamorous people.
A woman of indomitable passions and remarkable strength, she was forced to deal with the jealousies and deceptions of those nearest her, and the crushing loss of the husband she adored. Overcoming the setbacks life put in her way, she was always the artist, creating grandeur and elegance. But her finest masterpiece by far was the great lady she made of herself.
