This novel is based on the real life of a Southern lady, Aldeen the Queen. Raised in a wealthy family with a Civil War/Slaveholding history, she was crushed when her teenage lover was banished by her father. The Queen recovered and became independent and the manager of the family businesses. A series of deaths and the quandary of being jilted as a teenager impacted Aldeen but she matured and was married and widowed by four husbands. Inheriting significant wealth from each husband, Aldeen became a successful business woman.

Her banished lover accumulated a trust fund and bequeathed it to the Queen at his death.

Despite her brusk, terse personality and outspoken bigotry, Aldeen the Queen was a generous humanitarian.
