Tuesday Book Club: American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin
Tuesday, May 17, 2022 - Wednesday, May 18, 2022
10:00 am - 11:30 am
The Tuesday Book Club meets on the third Tuesday of every month (with an exception here and there). We discuss a wide variety of genres but focus on popular fiction and nonfiction. Contact Amy Carroll Acarroll@cc-pl.org with any questions.
***Please note that this month the Tuesday Book Club will be meeting in the library breakroom due to the election. Please ask at the Patron Services Desk for directions.
Be careful what you wish for. Traveling abroad with her mother at the turn of the twentieth century to seek a titled husband, beautiful, vivacious Cora Cash, whose family mansion in Newport dwarfs the Vanderbilts’, 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 Nothing is quite as it seems, however: Ivo is withdrawn and secretive, and the English social scene is full of traps and betrayals.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, as she must decide what is truly worth the price in her life and her marriage.
Witty, moving, and brilliantly entertaining, Cora’s story marks the debut of a glorious storyteller who brings a fresh new spirit to the world of Edith Wharton and Henry James.
