It's the story of Cora Cash, an American heiress in the 1890s who should have been careful what she wished for. Traveling abroad with her mother at the turn of the 20th century to seek a titled husband, beautiful, vivacious Cora — whose family mansion in Newport dwarfs the Vanderbilt's — 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 Ivo is withdrawn and secretive, and the English social scene is full of traps and betrayals.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, and she must decide what is truly worth the price in her life and her marriage.
This tantalizing novel's plot jumps off the pages as you follow Cora Cash on her journey to finding what she thinks will be her happy ending — ultimately determining that money can't buy happiness.
With the popularity of the PBS hit Downton Abbey, the paperback release of Daisy Goodwin's The American Heiress couldn't have come at a better time. Goodwin's novel will no doubt help with the withdrawals Downton Abbey fans are feeling since the show's season finale aired.
So what are you waiting for? Snap up a copy of The American Heiress and join Daisy Goodwin on her Facebook page Thursday, June 14 from 5 to 6 p.m. PST/8 to 9 p.m. EST and talk with her live about all things writing.
