Enter a world in which American millionaires marry British aristocrats-in return for title and social status-and discover why this blockbuster bestselling novel continues to enchant millions of readers.

Be careful what you wish for...
Newport heiress Cora Cash-beautiful, spirited, and the richest girl in the country-is the closest thing that American society has to a princess in 1893. But her mother wants more, and whisks Cora away to England for the one thing money can't get a woman in the States: a title.

When it comes to love
Cora makes a dazzling impression on English society-followed by a brilliant match-but finds the chill in the air of magnificent ancestral homes is not solely due to the lack of central heating. Faced with the traps and betrayals of an old-world aristocracy that can trip up even the most charming, accomplished outsider, can Cora grow from a spoiled rich girl into a woman of substance?

Witty, moving, and brilliantly entertaining, Daisy Goodwin's The American Heiress marks the debut of a glorious storyteller who brings a fresh new spirit to the world of Edith Wharton and Henry James.

"Superior...shrewd, spirited historical romance."-Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
