While I enjoyed the first half of the book, where Consuelo Vanderbilt is miserable and married to a fairly horrible man, the second half where she is happy, and spending money like it's gong out of style, was just so-so. Seems like every chapter she or her mother are buying another 'cottage' to get away from 'it all'. This woman may have been forced into a loveless marriage, but she was one spoiled girl. I can't recommend this book, if I were to be honest.
