It's an old Anne River Siddons, and a little lengthy, but if you stick with it, it's a good light read.

Back Cover:
She was special.
That's what Ruth Yanceys worn out mother told her every day of her life. And Ruth was beautiful, with a fiery splendor that rose above her squalid Georgia mill town roots.
It was those looks, and her imbred belief in a powerful destiny, that led Ruth to the most exquisite mansion in Sparta, Fox's Earth.
Through insinuation, manipulation and an impenetrable evil, she became its mistress for three generations..with masterful precision, she broke her descendants hearts and bled their souls..until another woman, not of her blood, not of her station, attempted to match her madness...
