Denise Kiernan – The Last Castle

The Epic Story of Love, Loss, and American Royalty in the Nation's Largest Home

I love what Karen Abbott (NYT bestselling author of Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy) says about this book: “The Last Castle is a soaring and gorgeous American story that gripped me from the very first page. With a historian’s keen insight and a poet’s gift for language, Denise Kiernan depicts life at Biltmore with such skill, I felt like I was there through it all: weddings, divorces, elaborate (and slightly bizarre) balls, financial glory, financial ruin, murder, suicide, natural disasters, betrayals, love, loss, despair, and triumph. The story of George and Edith Vanderbilt’s remarkable lives will stay with me for a long time to come.”

It is rare that you read a non-fiction book that is written with so much feeling and so much depth that you actually get tears in yours. Denise Kiernan is truly a brilliant writer and has created a book that takes you back in time.

Once you read this book you will find yourself heading to North Carolina...

Get this great book...
