Vanity FairBook - 1848
Ambitious social climber Becky Sharp is determined to gain wealth and worldly success - whatever the cost. Witty, charming and ruthless, orphaned as a child and 'a woman since she was eight years old', she is well-equiped for the fight. And while her sentimental companion Amelia falls victim to caddish soldier George Osborne, brilliant, conniving, gold-digging Becky is busy clawing her way to the top.
