Surrounded by Books

I read historical fiction, mystery, foodie memoir, and well-crafted YA (sometimes other genres).

The American Heiress

The American Heiress - Daisy Goodwin Entirely decent historical fiction. Wealthy, spoiled, naive heiress falls in love, nasty conniving mother and mother-in-law are nasty. Dinners, corsets, opulence. Great fun. Can't help rooting for Cora the heiress, despite her being unplugged from any commonplace reality.
