Publisher's Summary

Cora Cash, possibly the wealthiest heiress in 1890's America, has been raised to believe that money will open every door to her. But when her mother whisks Cora to England to secure her an aristocratic match, Cora is dismayed by the welcome she at first receives. The great English houses in which she is entertained are frosty and forbidding, dogged by intrigue above stairs, and gossip below. And it is only when she loses her heart - to a man she barely knows - that Cora realises the game she is playing is one she does not fully understand, and that her own future happiness could be the prize.

I loved every minute of this brilliant book, it was one of those audiobooks you just don't want to finish listening to.

Although this book is fiction it is based on the fantastic real life stories of the American heiresses who travelled to Britain in the late 19th century in search of a title and in particular Consuelo Vanderbilt, who married The 9th Duke of Marlborough in 1895.

Highly recommended. If you like Downton Abbey you will enjoy this book.

Ok

Pleasant book but i found it predictable and never really gripped me in any way. It was "nice" to listen to but not captivating.
