Why read it?

1 author picked The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Historical fiction at its best. This book about the once wealthiest woman in the United States, Marjorie Post, packed the informational punch of a textbook and the juicy details of a soap opera. I loved moving through the decades with Marjorie, starting in the late 19th century at her birth up until her death in the 1970s. Getting to relive major historical events and reveling in the zeitgeist of different cultural moments in Marjorie’s shoes was such a thrill. Pataki is top-notch at historical fiction that focuses on fascinating women. 

From Elyssa's list on loads of nostalgia.
