Set in the late 19th century, Cora Cash, America's princess, goes to Europe with her mother to buy herself a royal title. As part of one of the richest families in America, Cora finds herself in a foreign land with complicated social rules, betrayals and loyalties. She marries a duke and must navigate this world and decides what is truly important in life. This was an extremely well-written book that did a wonderful job of describing life for the richest of the rich in the late 19th and early 20th century. The main characters were loveable and their emotions were relateable. The setting descriptions were so vivid that I could picture the places while reading. The actual story is less about the plot than the characters. The plot is a little predictable, but what redeems the book is the growth and depth that occurs in Cora, the main character.
