Wonderful story about the Vanderbilts

I love to visit Biltmore and will soon be making a trip to the estate. I read this short book because of my love for the mansion. The descriptions in this book stir some wonderful memories of my past visits.

It was great to read more of the history of the family and home. Although Cornelia 's friend, Gracie, is fictitious, the information written about the family is accurate. A lot of the Vanderbilt stories were told during my first guided tour of the home.

If you like history this is a great little read and I would highly recommend it.
