October 4, 2017
This week the library recommends “THE DUTCHESS” by Danielle Steel.
Angelique Latham has grown up at magnificent Belgrave Castle under the loving tutelage of her father, the Duke of Westerfield, after the death of her aristocratic French mother. At eighteen she is her father’s closest, most trusted child, schooled in managing their grand estate. But when he dies, her half-brothers brutally turn her out, denying her very existence. Angelique has a keen mind, remarkable beauty and en envelope of money her father pressed upon her. To survive, she will need all her resources and one bold stroke of fortune.
Unable to secure employment without references or connections, Angelique desperately makes her way to Paris, where she rescues a young woman fleeing an abusive madam, and suddenly sees a possibility. Open an elegant house of pleasure that will protect its women and serve only the best clients. With her upper-class breeding, her impeccable style and her father’s bequest, Angelique creates Le Boudoir, soon a sensational establishment where powerful men, secret desires and beautiful sophisticated women come together., but living on the edge of scandal, can she every make a life or her own or regain her rightful place in the world”
“THE DUTCHESS” is available now at the JEFF REICHELT MEMORIAL LIBRARY.
Don’t forget the story hour every Wednesday at 10:30am and the Lego Club every second and fourth Friday at 11am.
