Towards the end of the 19th century and at the turn of the 20th, a strange invasion took place in Britain. The citadel of power, privilege and breeding was breached. The incomers were a group of young women who, 50 years earlier, would have been looked on as the alien denizens of the New World. Between 1874 and 1905, dozens of young American heiresses married into the British peerage, bringing with them the wealth and glamour of the Gilded Age. Anne de Courcy sets the stories of these young women in the context of their times. Drawing on diaries, memoirs and letters, this richly entertaining group biography reveals what they thought of their new lives in England.
