One new book found it’s way to my house today. Well, actually two, but one is for my husband’s birthday next month and I don’t want to spoil it. I know he reads my posts, so I’ll save that one for after I give it to him. It’s a fun one, though.

The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin

(From the publisher)

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 Nothing is quite as it seems, however: Ivo is withdrawn and secretive, and the English social scene is full of traps and betrayals.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.

    1. The American Heiress has definitely gotten my attention. I hope you enjoy it. By the way, I have to tell you that I LOVE your blog. As someone who has a retinal disease and is legally blind, your blog is one of the easiest on my eyes of all the blogs. It’s clean layout, black/white contrast with bold lettering is fantastic! It looks very nice!!! Enjoy your book!
