Summary From the Gilded Age until 1914, more than 100 American heiresses invaded Britannia and swapped dollars for titles; just like Cora Crawley, the first Downton Abbey character Julian Fellowes was inspired to create after reading the book. Filled with vivid personalities, gossipy anecdotes, grand houses, and a wealth of period details, plus photographs, illustrations, quotes, and the finer points of Victorian and Edwardian etiquette, it is social history at its liveliest and most accessible.
