An American princess
In 1895, massive crowds surge forward, awaiting their glimpse of heiress Consuelo Vanderbilt. Just 18, the beautiful bride has not only arrived late, but in tears, yet her marriage to the aloof Duke of Marlborough proceeds. Bullied into the wedding by her mother, Consuelo loves another. But a deal was made, trading some of the vast Vanderbilt wealth for a title and prestige, and Consuelo, bred to obey, must make the best of things.
At Blenheim Palace, Consuelo is confronted with an overwhelming list of duties, but her relationship with the duke quickly disintegrates. Consuelo finds an inner strength, charming everyone, as she fights for women’s suffrage. And when she takes a scandalous leap, can she hope to attain love at last…?
