From the Publisher:
New Orleans turn of the centyury. Storyville was where prostitution flourished, legal for nearly 20 years in a city renowned for sin, seduction and sex. In between comes this story of 2 women inextricably linked by, as they call it, "The District."

Kate, young beautiful, and completely green, abandoned by a man who doesn't love her, finds herself thrown on the mercies of the city. She knows that Mollie Q, one of New Orlean's most enterprising madams, is offering the best she's likely to get.

Julia Randsome is a transplanted Yankee, a supporter of women's rights, who, against everyone's advice, marries into one of the city's most prominent families. She will discover too late that her husband, Charles, owns considerable property in Storyville and isn't prepared to give it up, even for her.

Kate and Julia occupy different universes in New Orleans but somehow in that city all roads lead to the same place, back to the District.

These 2 women, one a patrician, the other a prostitute are so reichly drawn so complicated that they seem as real as our own families.
