The Duchess

(2017)
A novel by

 
Featuring an exclusive foreword by the author.


The incomparable Danielle Steel breaks new ground as she takes us to nineteenth-century England, where a high-born young woman is forced out into the world - and begins a journey of survival, sensuality and long-sought justice.

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 an 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 ever make a life of her own - or regain her rightful place in the world?

From England to Paris and New York, Danielle Steel captures an age of upheaval and the struggles of women in a male-ruled society - and paints a captivating portrait of a woman of unquenchable spirit, who in houses great or humble is every ounce a duchess.
