Praise
"[The author] gives Cora distinct personality and allure. . . . [She] remains a vibrant character throughout Ms. Goodwin's archly entertaining story."
From the Publisher
Annotation At the height of Belle Epoque idealism in the 1890s, a wealthy American socialite looking to add nobility to her family's fortune discovers exactly what she seeks in a strapping English Duke. Yet, after the wedding, Ivo of Wareham reveals himself to be a reserved partner, a churlish lover, and a manipulator of court intrigues. Cora Cash must contend with what happens without the fairy-tale ending in THE AMERICAN HEIRESS, but fortunately she soon finds new outlets for her ebullience and wit apart from her marriage.
Editors Note "Anyone suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal symptoms (who isn't?) will find an instant tonic in Daisy Goodwin's The American Heiress. The story of Cora Cash, an American heiress in the 1890s who bags an English duke, this is a deliciously evocative first novel that lingers in the mind." --Allison Pearson, New York Times bestselling author of I Don't Know How She Does It and I Think I Love YouBe careful what you wish for. Traveling abroad with her mother at the turn of the twentieth century to seek a titled husband, beautiful, vivacious Cora Cash, whose family mansion in Newport dwarfs the Vanderbilts', suddenly finds herself Duchess of Wareham, married to Ivo, the most eligible bachelor in England. Nothing is quite as it seems, however: Ivo is withdrawn and secretive, and the English social scene is full of traps and betrayals. Money, Cora soon learns, cannot buy everything, as she must decide what is truly worth the price in her life and her marriage. Witty, moving, and brilliantly entertaining, Cora's story marks the debut of a glorious storyteller who brings a fresh new spirit to the world of Edith Wharton and Henry James.
