According to bestselling author Daisy Goodwin, the "most venomous politicians in English society" were 19th-century aristocrats. In their world --- a world based solely upon status and power --- there are only two things that matter: money and titles. The more you have of one or both, the more recognition you are seen to deserve. But is this a world any sane person would really want to live in? Read THE AMERICAN HEIRESS, Goodwin's debut novel, and decide for yourself.
"This is an exceptionally thoughtful and stunning historical novel that will leave you reeling and astonished.
