Publisher's Summary

This is the true story a woman swindled out of a fortune by her famous ex-Confederate-general husband, Philip Dale Roddey. You will find this story nowhere else in material about Roddey but it was splashed across the nation in newspapers in 1874 and followed closely by the New York Times.

From the date of their marriage until her trials for grand larceny and perjury, Carlotta Frances (Shotwell) Roddey believed nearly everything her charming southern husband told her. Why wouldn't she? He was 20 years her senior, was friends with President Ulysses S. Grant, and loved to stay in the best hotels in New York and Washington.

The well-invested legacy left by her father had made her rich and she didn't know the man who introduced her to everyone as his wife was a bigamist and adulterer.

While pregnant, her life was turned upside-down. She was arrested, put on trial, and denied by Roddey.

Here are the lurid details by Carlotta herself, with plenty of updated information about the players and the trials. Was she really as naive as she portrays herself in this book? Decide for yourself.
