Amanda Mackenzie Stuart is the author of Consuelo and Alva Vanderbilt: The Story of a Daughter and a Mother in the Gilded Age. She lives in Oxford, England/5(). A very well researched book about Consuelo Vanderbilt and her mother Alva.

Consuelo was forced/pushed by her mother to marry the 9th Duke of Marlborough of Blenheim Palace. Both the Duke and Consuelo were in love with other people.

Needless to say, the marriage was not a success. Later Consuelo did marry a Frenchman and they had a happy marriage/5. Inthe strong-willed Alva Smith married an heir to the Vanderbilt fortune in order to save her own family from further descent into genteel poverty.

Twenty years later, she compelled her daughter Consuelo into a loveless marriage to the ninth Duke of Marlborough, in order to provide her with a career rather than an empty life/5(). This is a good book that provides more details on this incredibly fasinating family.

Alva Vanderbilt had decided that no "untitled" American was good enough for her daughter and sets out to ensure that Consuelo marries a "title" but then consigns her daughter to a loveless marriage in a foreign country/5().

When Consuelo Vanderbilt's grandfather died, he was the richest man in America. Her father soon started to spend the family fortune, enthusiastically supported by Consuelo's mother, Alva, who was determined to take the family to the top of New York society—forcing a heartbroken Consuelo into a marriage she did not want with the underfunded Duke of Marlborough.
