The author of Park Avenue Summer throws back the curtain on one of the most remarkable feuds in history: Mrs. Vanderbilt and Mrs. Astor's notorious battle for control of New York society during the Gilded Age.
In the glittering world of Manhattan's upper crust, where wives turn a blind eye to husbands' infidelities, and women have few rights and even less independence, society is everything. The more celebrated the hostess, the more powerful the woman. And none is more powerful than Caroline Astor—the Mrs. Astor.
But times are changing.
Alva Vanderbilt has recently married into one of America's richest families. But what good is money when society refuses to acknowledge you? Alva, who knows what it is to have nothing, will do whatever it takes to have everything.
Sweeping three decades and based on true events, this is a gripping novel about two fascinating, complicated women going head to head, behaving badly, and discovering what’s truly at stake. - from Goodreads

I've actually never read anything from this time period/setting (that I can remember) so that in itself is a draw.ReplyDelete

Doesn't this sound good?! I really want to read it too. I love reading books set in that time period. I hope you love The Social Graces when you read it!ReplyDelete

I was going to say I recognized the arch on the cover of the book, so was glad to see it was where I was thinking. Hope you get this one soon!ReplyDelete
