Description

This is a story of money, glamour, and scandal (on the highest level); a story of American society and of European Royalty; a story of family strife exploding into one of the most dramatic and publicized court battles of the century - the battle for a solemn 10-year-old child, "little Gloria" Vanderbilt, who in 1934 was the object of the epic custody suit between her mother, the beautiful and penniless Vanderbilt widow, and her aunt, the famous Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, whose $78 million could buy her anything she wanted. And what she wanted was "little Gloria".

In this book we follow a courtroom drama of sensation after sensation, the judge ultimately banning both public and press, the final scandalous testimony reaching to the heart of the English royal family. For the first time, the thousands of pages of documents and sealed court testimony have been unearthed and explored. Hundreds of people have been interviewed. And a writer completely knowing about society and the period has used all this material to create a compelling narrative of vitality, resonance, and fascination.
