Since the end of the Civil War, J.P. Morgan has functioned as a one-man central bank for the booming American republic. But as the 20th century dawns, Morgan begins to plan for what will happen once he’s gone. He worries for the future of a rapidly transforming country, one whose profound change is personified by his hyper-intelligent and independent daughter Anne.
