Young, beautiful, graceful, and well educated, the four Caton sisters enthralled all those who met them. Descended from the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence, they moved in circles of both wealth and prominence on both sides of the Atlantic. Jehanne Wake's glittering collective biography shows how these three pretty plantation girls with fortunes captured the hearts of Regency high society after they arrived in London in 1816. (Youngest sister Emily stayed quite happily behind in Baltimore.) Painstakingly researched from personal documents, Jehanne Wake's Sisters of Fortune presents each of these energetic siblings as the distinct original she was.
