Discover the true story of Madeleine Force Astor, the scandalously young wife of John Jacob Astor IV, the richest man in America. Divorced and nearly thirty years older than she, Jack’s courtship of Madeleine sends shock waves through every level of society—and society just can't get enough of them.
To escape the relentless pursuit of the press, the Astors take an extended honeymoon overseas, planning to return home aboard the most modern, opulent ocean liner ever imagined: Titanic...
One of the most beautifully written books I've ever had the pleasure to read.... A gorgeous, phenomenal novel I won't soon forget.
