'I was seduced by this book, rather as Cora is seduced by her duke: with great skill and confidence. Daisy Goodwin's first novel is intriguing, atmospheric and extremely stylish. I was still thinking about it long after I had reached the end' ( Penny Vincenzi)
'A pleasure from start to finish' ( Woman & Home )
'... sparkling and thoroughly engaging novel... a highly enjoyable and intelligent read.' ( The Sunday Times )
'A wonderfully guilty pleasure of a read.. the detailing is beautiful, the great phalanx of historical characters amusing and the relief of reading a novel that puts enjoyment first, so rare and gratifying that I am ready for a sequel.' ( Amanda Foreman, Sunday Telegraph )
'Daisy Goodwin's debut novel is a delightful confection... embellished with the glittering lavishness that the period implies.' ( Marie Claire )
Cora Cash has grown up in a world in which money unlocks every door. Her coming-out ball promises to be the most opulent of the gilded 1890s, a fitting debut for New York's 'princess'. Yet her fortune cannot buy her the one thing she craves - the freedom to choose her own destiny.
For Cora's mother has her heart on a title for her daughter, and in England - where they are bound, to find Cora a husband - impoverished blue bloods are queuing up for introductions to American heiresses. But the aristocracy is a treacherous realm. When Cora loses her heart to a man she barely knows, she soon realises that she is playing a game she does not fully understand - and that her future happiness is the prize.
Daisy Goodwin's sparking debut brings the fin de siècle romance between England and America to exuberant life.
