Together with her friends, Carrie Astor and Edith Jones (Wharton) she is introduced to the elite bachelors of New York's families hoping to find the perfect match and the perfect marriage. As a new debutante Sara is described as 'ethereally beautiful' and 'the spirit of the ball' garnering many suitors, but none steal her heart. None except one. Destiny steps in when she is introduced to Oliver Belmont, the handsome son of financier August Belmont. In an age when royal titles and large dowries are exchanged through marriage, Oliver and Sara are forced to deal with the decorum of Gilded Age society while embracing their newfound love. What develops is a story that will leave you spellbound, as 'Swan Song - The Vocation of Marriage' unfolds. With information gathered from personal letters, historical newspapers and personal interviews, J. D. Peterson skillfully weaves a tale based on the true account of the Belmont-Whiting Scandal of 1883. Visit www.swansongtrilogy.com for Book Club discussion questions, photos and more."show more
