Summary

Elizabeth McGovern looks at the young American heiresses whose real-life stories inspired Downton Abbey. She begins with the families commonly called `nouveau riche'. Snubbed by New York's old-money families, these ambitious new millionaires, along with their daughters, set their sights on England, where they quickly gained entry into the highest levels of the British aristocracy.
