WOMEN OF MEANS Fascinating Biographies of Royals, Heiresses, Eccentrics, and Other Poor Little Rich Girls

by | Read by Susan Ericksen

Biography & Memoir • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

This audiobook is filled with stories of very privileged mostly American heiresses and how they lived. Narrator Susan Ericksen creates a cadence that carries listeners smoothly from one woman to the next. From members of the Vanderbilt family to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the women depicted will astonish with respect to the lengths to which many would go to get their way or get their man or mete out vengeance on someone who crossed them. Ericksen allows listeners to savor their adventures by controlling her phrasing and inflection. Her voice is not sympathetic; instead her tone is one of head-shaking disbelief. She seems to be asking why the richest women in the world depleted their fortunes in selfish pursuits rather than pursuing philanthropic endeavors.
