Some brief overview of this book

Nan and Virginia St. George have the great good luck to be born beautiful and wealthy - the two qualities prized above all others in 1870s New York - but the insurmountably bad luck to come from new money. Shunned by the snobbish guardians of Manhattan society, the lively girls still attract many admirers, but no offers of marriage from eligible men - the grail pursued discreetly but with single-minded intensity by all young women of polite birth (and their mothers). Their spirited governess, Laura Testvalley, determines to launch these buccaneers in London society, whose impoverished aristocracy, groaning under the burdens of massive country estates, are only too willing to trade a title for a fortune. But the earls and lords have failed to reckon with the strong wills of the buccaneers - especially exquisite Nans. She dares to hope for more than position and wealth: a genuine, enduring love is what she craves, and shes willing to sacrifice everything shes attained for something true and real. Edith Whartons novel pits tradition against vitality and change in a lushly romantic tale, observed with all her characteristic elegance and wit.

Finally finished by writer Marion Mainwaring, Edith Whartons timeless story is as riveting today as any written in her own time. Set in the 1870s, The Buccaneers is about five wealthy American girls whose money is too new to get them into society.
