Why the author wrote this book:

I love New England and I've always been fascinated by the Gilded Age. The mansions of Newport and their elite society were unrivaled in their time. I imagined a debutante, facing a forced engagement and all the entrapments thereof. No amount of money could buy her, or her family, true freedom.
