I have chosen to share books for
10 days that are by Authors I absolutely love but aren’t given the level of publicity their work deserves.
DAY7: TEN DAY AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT
As READERS, I am asking you to add these to your list of books to read next, and also share the posts, so we can get these Authors the spotlight they deserve.
As AUTHORS I’m asking you to start your own #TenDayAuthorSpotlight so we can be a community that supports each other.
DAY7: My seventh Author Spotlight is of Author Marlene Wagman-Geller and the book I will be spotlighting is WOMAN OF MEANS which is now available on Amazon.
About the book:
The Grass Isn’t Greener on the Other Side: 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.
Happily Never After: 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.
Women of Means is bound to be a non-fiction best seller, full of the best biographies of all time. Some of the women whose silver spoons rusted include:
- Almira Carnarvon, the real-life counterpart to Lady Cora of Downton Abbey
- Liliane Bettencourt, whose chemist father created L’Oreal… and was a Nazi collaborator
- Peggy Guggenheim, who had an insatiable appetite for modern art and men
- Nica Rothschild, who traded her gilded life to become the Baroness of Bebop
- Jocelyn Wildenstein, who became a cosmetology-enhanced cat-woman
- Ruth Madoff, the dethroned queen of Manhattan
- Patty Hearst, who trod the path from heiress… to terrorist
