Summary

Rosalie Vanderpoel, the daughter of an American multimillionaire marries an impoverished English baronet and goes to live in England. She all but loses contact with her family in America. Years later her younger sister Bettina, beautiful, intelligent and extremely rich, goes to England to find what has happened to her sister. She finds Rosalie shabby and dispirited, cowed by her husband's ill treatment. Bettina sets about to rectify matters. She meets Lord Mount Dunstan, an impoverished earl, who lives nearby and they fall in love, but he cannot speak because it would look as if he were after her money...This is a romance but it is also about the rejuvenating effects of Americans and American money on a somewhat decadent English aristocracy.

Absolutely love this book! Great narration - great story - interesting to hear about the merging of British and American societyin early 1900s Plus melodrama enough for any age!

- Review The Shuttle

Applause- standing ovation- simply one of the best books I have ever listened to. Known only as Tabithat - the narrator was splendid and did a marvelous job. I really did not want this book to end. Chapter by chapter she draws you in and you feel every piece of the story as she reads it to you. This is surely one of France's best works. I highly recommend it. :0)

- The Shuttle

The title of this book doesn't do it justice. The book is extraordinary, awesome. Beautifully read I felt like this reader was there in that time. I hated to see it end. A very awesome book.

- Unexpectedly spectacular!

What a marvelous book. Very suspenseful, melodramatic and thrilling. It was read beautifully, on top of all that. Thank you.
