Lora Lawton was a serial radio program following the rags-to-riches tale of a maid turned millionaire's wife. Lora Lawton's story began as a divorcee of Harley Lawton and housekeeper of Peter Carver, the president of Carver Shipbuilding Company. Luckily the handsome and rich Peter fell head over heals in love with Lora much to the dismay of his disapproving sister Gail.
Lora's nasty and judgmental sister-in-law causes much angst in her life and is the primary antagonist in the series. Her ex-husband, Harley Lawton, also caused Lora much grief. Luckily she had a friend, personal assistant, and confidant named May Case for girl time.
