Product description

Review

This tender, well-researched novel lets readers see the economic, social, and political highlights of the nineteenth-century Gilded Age brought to life through Consuelo Vanderbilt's eyes.

-- "Booklist"

A sweeping history of the Gilded Age, this novel is for fans of historical fiction, PBS' Downton Abbey, and the recent royal wedding.

-- "Library Journal"

Harper entices readers with this lively novel about wealthy American heiress Consuelo Vanderbilt...Harper's story highlights how the wealth that prevented Consuelo from making her own decisions also enabled her to better the lives of those less fortunate. This immersive novel believably puts the reader in Consuelo's shoes.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Harper writes with effortless prose and an expert take on the era.

-- "Publishers Weekly on Mistress of Mourning"
