Soon Har’s synopsis:
A witty mix of romance, history and social commentary set in America and England, this is a delicious read with a feisty heroine, a “girl that every woman in Newport envied and every man desired.” Based on the lives of rich Americans seeking titled Europeans at the turn of the century, the book is filled with outrageous details of what excessive wealth can buy, sharp observations of late-20th century social customs, and a good-old-fashioned love story.
This author’s light-hearted tone makes this a fun read while the historical details keep it from being frothy. The glimpse into the lives of the rich and famous then reminds us that socially, we haven’t come very far!
