In A Gilded Cage
From Heiress To DuchessBook - 1993
In a Gilded Cageis the thoroughly entertaining and lavishly illustrated story of five turn-of-the-century heiresses who captured the hands of British dukes in marriage. Laced with a bracing dash on 1990s feminism, Marian Fowler paints an intimate portrait of five individualistic women who defied convention, and provides a sparkling and richly detailed view of the extraordinary excesses of the Gilded Age.
