IDLE HOURS: The Grace and the Glory, is a novel about two girls, one possessed of extraordinary wealth and her friend Laurel, daughter of a local farmer
The real Consuelo Vanderbilt, who became the Twelfth Duchess of Marlborough, in 1895, was an American girl whose happiest childhood days were spent at her parent's country home in Oakdale. IDLE HOURS is the story of Consuelo's early years as she might have experienced them with another girl her age. The Haags and their daughter, Laurel, represent the many families who worked at the Idle Hour estate and were forever changed by their contact with their extraordinary neighbors, the William K.Vanderbilts. This is a story of what might-have-been long ago. Consuelo's glory is written in the cold, stonewalls of the great Palace at Blenheim, England. Laurel reflects the grace of the pioneers of Oakdale as they faced a new century.
