She was also in love with an American suitor when her mother chose instead for her to marry an English Duke.

She was the real American heiress who lived long before Downton Abbey’s Lady Grantham arrived.

The Glitter and the Gold is a richly enjoyable memoir is a revealing portrait of a golden age now being celebrated every week behind the doors of Downton Abbey.
