THE AMERICAN HEIRESS by Daisy Goodwin

AH

Be careful what you wish for. Traveling abroad with her mother at the turn of the twentieth century to seek a titled husband, beautiful, vivacious Cora Cash, whose family mansion in Newport dwarfs the Vanderbilts’, suddenly finds herself Duchess of Wareham, married to Ivo, the most eligible bachelor in England. Nothing is quite as it seems, however: Ivo is withdrawn and secretive, and the English social scene is full of traps and betrayals. Money, Cora soon learns, cannot buy everything, as she must decide what is truly worth the price in her life and her marriage.

Comments: Sometimes authors come around that just make you feel like a novice. Daisy is such. Her handle on the historic fashions, modes of EVERYTHING and I politics of the time deserve serious praise. I loved this book. It was everything it ought to be.
