Inside this Book – Towards the end of the nineteenth century and for the first few years of the twentieth, a strange invasion took place in Britain. The citadel of power, privilege and breeding in which the titled, land-owning governing class had barricaded itself for so long was breached. The incomers were a group of young women who, fifty years earlier, would have been looked on as the alien denizens of another world – the New World, to be precise. From 1874 – the year that Jennie Jerome, the first known ‘Dollar Princess’, married Randolph Churchill – to 1905, dozens of young American heiresses married into the British peerage, bringing with them all the fabulous wealth, glamour and sophistication of the Gilded Age.
Inside this book –The Husband Hunters PDF Book by Anne De Courcy – They say money can’t buy you happiness but in the late 1800s and early 1900s, it could buy you a husband. “Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping.” (Bo Derek) …and shopping these girls and their mothers did. They were shopping for an entrance into high society and were willing with their bags filled with money to climb that social ladder no matter what it took. This was the world of The Husband Hunters: Social Climbing in London and New York This was a fascinating tale of wealth, copious wealth, and what it bought at the end and beginning of the nineteenth century. The money, extravagantly spent, thrown around and perhaps even squandered was a way or an entrance into society where the rules were stringent and life was dictated by status, who you were descended from, and of course how much your husband, father, and family was worth. If you were a nouveau riche, you were not accepted into society unless of course you found a way.
