Why would children of wealth and privilege live in squalor? Little Kara and Lizzie were heirs to one of the largest fortunes in the country. But when their father and his parents die suddenly, the toddlers are ripped from the arms of a loving stepmother, and given to their cruel maternal grandparents, who want the children’s fortune for themselves.
Even the stipend they get for supporting the children is squandered in the gambling casinos they frequent, while the children raise themselves. Kara and Lizzie grow up believing they are worthless…until the day when they learn the truth.
