    schema:description "November, 1895, St Thomas Episcopal Church on New York City's Fifth Avenue. Heiress Consuelo Vanderbilt, just 18, is married to the aloof Duke of Marlborough, a marriage in which some of the vast Vanderbilt wealth is traded for title and prestige. Consuelo, bred to obey, realizes she must make the best of things. At Blenheim Palace, Consuelo is overwhelmed with a list of duties, including producing an heir and a spare, but her relationship with the duke quickly disintegrates. Consuelo finds an inner strength charming everyone from débutantes to diplomats, as she fights for women's suffrage. And when she takes a scandalous leap, can she hope to attain love at last? -- adapted from publishers description."@en ;
