#11 Women of Means by Marlene Wagman-Geller

Heiresses have always been viewed with eyes of envy. They were the ones for whom the cornucopia had been upended, showering them with unimaginable wealth and opportunity. However, through intimate historical biographies, Women of Means shows us that oftentimes the weaving sisters saved their most heart-wrenching tapestries for the destinies of wealthy women.

From the author of Behind Every Great Man, we now have Women of Means, vignettes of the women who were slated from birth―or marriage―to great privilege, only to endure lives which were the stuff Russian tragic heroines are made of. They are the nonfictional Richard Corys―those not slated for happily ever after.

Some of the women whose silver spoons rusted include Almira Carnarvon, the real-life counterpart to Lady Cora of Downton Abbey; Nica Rothschild, who traded her gilded life to become the Baroness of Bebop; and Jocelyn Wildenstein, who became a cosmetology-enhanced cat-woman.
