“Finding Lillie” is set in 1903 in New York City, the Thousand Islands, and Saratoga Springs, NY. It's a new century, but society still clings to its old ideals and expectations. Lillie Thompson, young, wealthy and newly widowed, was raised to be gracious and subservient, despite her true thoughts. As she navigates her manipulative mother-in-law, new suitors, family secrets, and her beloved literary society, life teaches her to follow her own heart. “Finding Lillie” is a story of the American woman at the end of the Gilded Age and how she is portrayed in the fiction of the times.
