Description
"After the Civil War, Alva Smith and her sisters are left with nothing but their good name. Enter William Vanderbilt, whose nouveau riche family is shut out of established New York society. Hoping a union will improve both families' standings, William and Alva marry, but still find themselves excluded. Determined to have her due, Alva designs and builds mansions and hosts her own grand balls. Refused a box seat at the Academy of Music, she initiates founding the Metropolitan Opera House. But as she will learn too well, a life of wealth, status, good behavior, and privilege is not itself a recipe for happiness. Facing an unimaginable betrayal, Alva puts her future at risk -- with a scandalous strategy that changes her life. Set in Manhattan, Newport, and Paris, filled with glittering period detail and a cast of characters that includes the Astors, the Belmonts, the Mandevilles, and other notable names from the era, 'A Well-Behaved Woman' tells the remarkable story of a strong woman who would not be denied"--,Provided by publisher.
