In a Gilded Cage is the thoroughly entertaining and lavishly illustrated story of five turn-of-the-century heiresses who captured the hands of British dukes in marriage. Laced with a bracing dash on 1990s feminism, Marian Fowler paints an intimate portrait of five individualistic women who defied convention, and provides a sparkling and richly detailed view of the extraordinary excesses of the Gilded Age.
Marian Fowler is the author of Below the Peacock Fan, The Embroidered Tent, Blenheim: Biography of a Palace and Redney: A Life of Sarah Jeanette Duncan. She was the recipient of the Canadian Biography Award and has taught at York University. Marian Fowler lives in Toronto.
