I enjoyed this historical fiction story of Consuelo Vanderbilt and we walk in her shoes as she journeys her life, and although being born with the preverbal silver spoon, we see her trials and accomplishments up close through the eyes of the author.Now I ll admit I did Google Consuelo, and the story follows the time line, only we are with her and her thoughts.What a life this woman lived, and loved how she was able to forgive those who had hurt her, and was always giving to those less fortunate [...]

  6. This author apparently has a wide following, and if you like fluffed up historical fiction, you ll probably be a fan.If on the other hand you like a little than cardboard characters and weak dialogue if you like books that are based on REAL people that make you feel as if you d met them, and want to read about them, just leave this one alone and move on.P.S Edith Wharton makes a cameo appearance here, and talks about writing a book she will call The Buccaneers She never finished i This author ap [...]
