A Well-Behaved Woman

A Novel of the Vanderbilts
Written by Therese Anne Fowler | Narrated by Barrie Kreinik
After marrying into the Vanderbilt dynasty, the indomitable Alva Smith ignores the social conventions of her position — and goes on to forge her own remarkable path. This audiobook from the New York Times bestselling author of Z is a fascinating story about a woman who knew how to live large — and when to break the rules.

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

A Well-Behaved Woman is the riveting audiobook about iron-willed Alva Vanderbilt and her illustrious family as they rule Gilded Age New York, from the New York Times bestselling author of Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald.

Alva Smith, her southern family destitute after the Civil War, married into one of America’s great Gilded Age dynasties: the newly wealthy but socially shunned Vanderbilts. Ignored by New York’s old-money circles and determined to win respect, she designed and built 9 mansions, hosted grand balls, and arranged for her daughter to marry a duke. But Alva also defied convention for women of her time, asserting power within her marriage and becoming a leader in the women’s suffrage movement.

In A Well-Behaved Woman, Therese Anne Fowler paints a glittering world of enormous wealth contrasted against desperate poverty, of social ambition and social scorn, of friendship and betrayal, and an unforgettable story of a remarkable woman.

Meet Alva Smith Vanderbilt Belmont, living proof that history is made by those who know the rules—and how to break them.
