Fortune's Daughters : The Extravagant Lives of the Jerome Sisters - Jennie Churchill, Clara Frewen and Leonie Leslie Paperback
The story of the three Jerome sisters is one of love, glamour and money in equal measure.
Born to a New York stockbroker and his extravagant wife, Jennie, Clara and Leonie were provided with every advantage.
Jennie Jerome married Randolph Churchill, younger son of the Duke of Marlborough and was Winston's mother.
Clara Jerome was romanced by the dashing Moreton Frewen, who had already gambled away what capital he had, while Leonie Jerome married into the Leslies, a distinguished Irish family.
Elisabeth Kehoe's immaculately researched book brings the three sisters - and their quest for true love and happiness - sparkling to life.
