The Glitter and the Gold by Consuela Vanderbilt Balsan.
Avid Reader’s thoughts.
The bringing together of two famous families, one in America who coverted a Dukedom and one in the U.K. who needed an injection of money. The Vanderbilt daughter became the Duchess of Marlborough and the Mistress of Blenheim . The couple were part of the scene within the Courts of Europe and Empire.
This is the personel story of the author and illustrates a level of life between the two world wars.
Not a happy marriage but she finally finds happiness in another world.
