Autorentext

This almost-too-funny-to-be-true story was told by Celeste Andrews to her Hollywood screenwriter brother, Clark Andrews.



Klappentext

This story begins on a hot fall afternoon with young and pretty Celeste Andrews swearing on a golf course and Louis Seton chivalrously fishing her club out of Lake Placid in the Adirondacks. Later that evening, Louis kisses her. Their relationship grows quickly and just two months later Louis
proposes to Celeste in the back of a cab in New York City. Their first stop: an illegal speakeasy to celebrate! At this point, though, Celeste is deeply in love and also deeply unaware of who her fiancé actually is. She begins her inquiry into Louis' life by asking the simple question, "Who are you?" As Louis slowly reveals his background, Celeste learns that his mother is Helen Gould Shepard, daughter of the railroad giant, Jay Gould, then considered the wealthiest woman in the country, as well as the most religious, stubborn and just perplexingly odd. Helen Gould is My Mother in Law is the wonderful true story of Celeste's baptism by fire, as it be, into the Gould family, world-renowned for exorbitant excess, infighting and international intrigue, to boot. Helen Gould Was My Mother In Law is that rare book that weaves its readers through history with a wink and a smile and leaves them wanting for more.
