 'The Gilded Beaver' 
by Margaret Lindsay Holton 

In this quasi-fiction, an ambitious Canadian fine furniture designer, Iris Ann Burdock, is introduced to one of Toronto’s billionaires, Luke G. Henderson. He considers her ... as well as a commission.

The problem, for Iris, is that this recently-divorced client is moody and unpredictable. Iris must painstakingly excavate his carefully-crafted fa├žade to find the ‘real man’ to rise up to meet his extraordinary design challenge. A witty & frustrating exchange erupts between them. Romantic sparks start to fly, and then ... !

 Book Reviews from 1999:
"... like good wine: rich, complex, pleasingly acerbic ... a dance of intellect & eros that expertly unfolds ... closes with panache." - Jim Bartley, Globe & Mail, Toronto

"... a psycho-sexual tug of war in the world of design" - Spring Book Review, Globe & Mail, Toronto

"... Novels about the relationship between two brothers, mothers and sons, husbands and wives, or fathers and daughters are common. But the relationship between a fine furniture designer and an imperious client can be just as fraught with tension, drama, comedy, incomprehension and hurt as any family relationship, and this novel proves it. - Why the 'anonymity'? Because, quotes the mysterious author, 'This is a true story’… " – The Toronto Star
