From the Publisher"In Gilded Age, Claire McMillan manages to both channel Edith Wharton and tell a compelling contemporary story of a woman unable to define herself through anything but the men who who desire her."—Lily King, author of Father of the Rain
“Claire McMillan has captured Cleveland society in her clever net and with it brought back Lily Bart to vivid life in this witty, perceptive, and compulsively readable story of our human frailties, our strivings for success and love.”—Sheila Kohler, author of Becoming Jane Eyre
“Claire McMillan has written a delightful first novel, which cleverly uses The House of Mirth as a counterpoint for her own perceptive take on contemporary social mores. A very fun read for Wharton's fans and anyone who likes a good story.”—Emily Mitchell, author of The Last Summer of the World
“Claire McMillan's mesmerizing depiction of contemporary Rust Belt aristocracy—no less stratified and coded than Edith Wharton's New York—is also a tender look at friendship and the secret of happiness. The haunting beauty of this novel lingers after the final page.”—Irina Reyn, author of What Happened to Anna K.
