Blaise’s October Recommendation #2

Empty Mansions by Bill Dedman, Paul Clark Newell Jr.

Blaise says: “If you enjoy reading about the lives of “others,” especially the very rich, here is one to add to your repertoire.  Empty Mansions tells the fascinating true story of Huguette Clark, an heiress leftover from the Gilded Age.  History lovers will enjoy learning about how her father amassed his fortune in the 19th century west, and then the story focuses on Huguette and her strange life.  A very interesting read and one that sticks with you.”
