This is an interesting book about a very wealthy and eccentric woman, probably a lesbian, who was born in 1900.
I say probably a lesbian because homosexuality was so repressed and persecuted then (not much different now!)that people who were homosexual were driven to do bizarre things to make them appear "eccentric" rather than "criminal" or "depraved".
This woman had the money to do what she wished and was emotionally damaged in a way that manifested itself with her ever present doll she took everywhere. She was a world class motorboat racer (women could not be such things then!).
A page turner for everyone who is interested in "gender bending" and such social phenomena.
