    ePUB Consuelo Vanderbilt Balsan ç ç The Glitter and the Gold PDF/EPUB À The Glitter glitter epub, gold kindle, The Glitter pdf, and the free, Glitter and the pdf, The Glitter and the Gold MOBIThis was a fascinating look at how the 1% lived at the turn of the twentieth century including an interesting description of Winston Churchill as a young manConsuelo Vanderbilt Balsan was the American born wife of the 9th Duke of Marlborough She was a member of the immensely rich Vanderbilt family and her cruel and ambitious mother arranged her marriage to an English duke who needed money to repair his house and pay his bills An intelligent well meaning and kind lady Consuelo did a great deal of charity work and took it seriously; treating everyone she met with respectHowever the entitlement arrogance stupidity and selfishness of her husband and many of the titled and Royal people she knew was sickening They were especially repulsive because they lacked the noblesse oblige and dedication to public service that could have acted as a counter balance to their privilege I do understand that they were a product of their times and some would say they didn't know

    ePUB Consuelo Vanderbilt Balsan ç ç The Glitter and the Gold PDF/EPUB À The Glitter glitter epub, gold kindle, The Glitter pdf, and the free, Glitter and the pdf, The Glitter and the Gold MOBII'm a tad confused In other books I've read how absolutely miserable consuelo's marriage was but there is no mud racking in this autobiography Amazing how within a couple of generations spurned ex wives would so willingly spill their dirty laundry for all the works to read

    ePUB Consuelo Vanderbilt Balsan ç ç The Glitter and the Gold PDF/EPUB À The Glitter glitter epub, gold kindle, The Glitter pdf, and the free, Glitter and the pdf, The Glitter and the Gold MOBII've seen this book and its author take some rather harsh and I believe unwarranted criticism Granted I have a particular interest in the history of the Vanderbilts and this is the fourth or fifth book I've read involving their legacy so I was already familiar with some of what Mrs Balsan relates here However referring to her as snobbish simply because of her use of formal English and rather common French idioms says about the would be critic rather than any hubris of the writer's I very much enjoyed Consuelo's writing style managing to impart her struggles and passions without buying into the poor little rich girl narrative with which the world sought to burden her She never seeks to invoke pity I also found that she manages to talk about tireless work and great accomplishments in philanthropy without a hint of self aggrandizement In her world of such extreme

    ePUB Consuelo Vanderbilt Balsan ç ç The Glitter and the Gold PDF/EPUB À The Glitter glitter epub, gold kindle, The Glitter pdf, and the free, Glitter and the pdf, The Glitter and the Gold MOBIConsuelo Vanderbilt had an amazing life The Glitter and the Gold gives a look into the days of one of the most famous women of American and English turn of the century aristocracy Even though she grew up in some of the most famous houses on Fifth Avenue Newport RI and England her childhood was a sad one She had the misfortune of having Alva Vanderbilt as her mother Alva was a strong selfish and ruthless mother In fact she locked away Consuelo and kept her prisoner until she agreed to marry the arrogant and violent Duke of Marlborough Consuelo disliked the big mansions especially Marble House how could she? In the end however she was able to find true love with Jacues Balsan The writing is a bit awkward but somehow adds to the veracity Even when describing terrible treatment Vanderbilt Balsan retains the understated tact of an aristocrat Interesting read

    ePUB Consuelo Vanderbilt Balsan ç ç The Glitter and the Gold PDF/EPUB À The Glitter glitter epub, gold kindle, The Glitter pdf, and the free, Glitter and the pdf, The Glitter and the Gold MOBII think I'd enjoy a third person biography of Consuelo Vanderbilt I get the sense that there's a lot to the story than she herself presents it Fun for fans of the gilded age but for the most part not too exciting the frivolity of the London season is so tiring; weekend hunting parties at Blenheim palace are ever so tiring for the hostess; etc Then in the last twenty pages the story becomes completely and unexpectedly gripping as the author and her husband are trying to get out of the

    ePUB Consuelo Vanderbilt Balsan ç ç The Glitter and the Gold PDF/EPUB À The Glitter glitter epub, gold kindle, The Glitter pdf, and the free, Glitter and the pdf, The Glitter and the Gold MOBII am totally conflicted about this book It is republished from the original in 1953 It is the autobiography of most of the life of a woman whose family is partial heirs to the Cornelius Vanderbilt fortune At age 17 Consuelo has an arranged marriage to the Duke of Marlborough in England It has been reprinted because of the success of the Downton Abbey series on PBS What I liked was the incite into the heads to the very very wealthy of the late 1800's and early 1900's You meet royalty and important people by the score You enjoy their formal dinners and their ball People like Churchill keep popping up at these gatherings But even with all the wealth her marriage fails and we are told her second marriage is a much happier one What I didn't enjoy was her constant name dropping of royals and others many times with very little explanation about who they were Also this is a woman who has a life others only
