Written in a style that sucks you in, this book gives insight into the social rise and powerful hold of the ultra rich in the United States and Europe during the late 1800's and early 1900's.

Excellent book on the gilded age and the dollar princesses. Counselo was a wealthy heirness who ended up in a marriage to an English Duke. This marriage did not work out but she found happiness in her second marriage. Her mother Alva Vanderbelt a very ambitious woman, but in the end she used her great influence for the Womans suffragete movement. A great book about a mother daughter relationship and the powerful and rich in the last century.
