Audible Editor Reviews

Lush descriptions bring the Gilded Age to life in Anna Godbersen's Splendor, the last in the best-selling Luxe series for teens. Nina Siemaszko's sweet, warm performance enriches this emotive, romantic historical story of the elite families of New York City. Will Elizabeth and Diana deal gracefully with unexpected news about their father's death? Will Carolina Broad retain her place in society? How will Penelope Schoonmaker fare if she lusts after power just a bit too much? Listeners will be aching to hear about this Gossip-Girl-esque group of historical heroines.

Publisher's Summary

New beginnings. Shocking revelations. Unexpected endings. As spring turns into summer, Elizabeth relishes her new role as a young wife, while her sister, Diana, searches for adventure abroad. But when a surprising clue about their father's death comes to light, the Holland girls wonder at what cost a life of splendor comes.

Carolina Broad, society's newest darling, fans a flame from her past, oblivious to how it might burn her future. Penelope Schoonmaker is finally Manhattan royalty - but when a real prince visits the city, she covets a title that comes with a crown. Her husband, Henry, bravely went to war, only to discover that his father's rule extends well beyond New York's shores and that fighting for love may prove a losing battle.

In the dramatic conclusion to the best-selling Luxe series, New York's most dazzling socialites chase dreams, cling to promises, and tempt fate. As society watches for what will become of the city's oldest families and newest fortunes, one question remains: Will its stars fade away or will they shine ever brighter?
