The autobiography of Anna del Conte was wonderful, her life story is fascinating and the way she links the anecdotes to foo is superb, cooking some of the included recipies would be divine.
The Vanderbilt family is well known in American history and financial circles but, the story of these two women and their private and political lives was complex and largely unhappy.
