11. 'A Well-Behaved Woman: A Novel Of The Vanderbilts' (Oct.16)
It's a sparkling return to the Gilded Age for Therese Anne Fowler, the bestselling author of Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, with this captivating look at the famed Vanderbilt family. Revolving around the forthright and forward-thinking Alva Smith Vanderbilt, the novel chronicles a woman who defied society's conventions--and their cold shoulder for her new-money wealth--to design and build mansions, marry her daughter into a dukedom, and become a leader of the sufferagette movement.
