The Titled Americans

Three American Sisters and the British Aristocratic World Into Which They Married

Unknown - 2004
Rate this:
Elisabeth Kehoe brings to life a sweeping, three-generational saga of the remarkable Jerome sisters-among the most glamorous women of their time-whose marriages to British aristocracy represented the first of such transatlantic unions. Although full of princely lovers, parties, and landed estates, the story's heart is the intensely supportive and beautifully affectionate lifelong relationship among the sisters. Waves of grave financial hardship afflicted them all, but they always rallied to rescue one another. Beginning in 1840s America and ending one hundred years later in the middle of World War II-when the British nation was fighting for survival under the leadership of Jennie's son, Winston Churchill-this biography presents an epic story of family and fortune that encompasses both the apogee and the twilight of the British Empire.
