A New & Noteworthy pick. Eighteen-year-old Consuelo Vanderbilt is forced into marriage to the Duke of Marlborough by her mother. Money can't buy everything, but Consuelo certainly leads a fascinating life.

I have been fascinated by the Vanderbilts and Blenheim Palace since the first time I visited Britain in the seventies. The American Duchess is entertaining and educational. I found myself searching for information to further my reading experience.
I strongly recommend this novel. I enjoyed The Royal Nanny, too and feel historical fiction is Karen Harper's forte. Can’t wait to share this novel.

It was amazing! This is a novel that will stay with you forever. Every Time you read another book about the period, you'll remember this book. Loved the relationships in this novel, and the way Consuelo matures into someone we can admire still today.
