A Well-Behaved Woman: A Novel of the Vanderbilts by Therese Anne Fowler, out Oct. 16
You know the name Vanderbilt. But do you know the story? Alva's family was left with nothing after the devastation of the Civil War. She married into the Vanderbilt family and had much to learn about society, wealth, and power. But she was so much more than just a Gilded Age socialite, and in Therese Anne Fowler's hands, A Well-Behaved Woman: A Novel of the Vanderbilts creates a striking portrait of a woman ahead of her time and a true feminist icon.
