KIndle Daily Deal: To Marry a King (88% off)

Today's KDD: To Marry an English Lord, by Gail MacColl. Normally $15.99, now $1.99!

88% off, today only!  39 of 45 reviews are four stars and above.

This looks like a fun read.  I'm a Downton Abbey fan; it's interesting to know that there was actually a trend like this at the time.

Amazon reviewer Margaret P Harvey says "The most fun history book you will ever read!"

From the Gilded Age until 1914, more than 100 American heiresses invaded Britannia and swapped dollars for titles--just like Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, the first of the Downton Abbey characters Julian Fellowes was inspired to create after reading To Marry An English Lord. Filled with vivid personalities, gossipy anecdotes, grand houses, and a wealth of period details--plus photographs, illustrations, quotes, and the finer points of Victorian and Edwardian etiquette--To Marry An English Lord is social history at its liveliest and most accessible.

Features: text-to-speech, lending, X-ray enabled.
