Barrie Kreinik's splendid narration immerses listeners in the dazzling world of heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, as portrayed in this novel. After humble beginnings in Battle Creek, Michigan, she becomes one of the nation's wealthiest women when her beloved father, Post cereal founder C.W. "Papa" Post, dies. Though she is blessed with innate business acumen, she is prohibited from serving on her family's corporate board although her influence was exerted through the promotion of her business ideas by male relations. Kreinik's portrayal of Marjorie expresses her intelligence, charm, and savvy, as well as her often impetuous romantic life, which included four divorces. While Marjorie lived an extraordinarily privileged life, her generosity and empathy prompted her many charitable endeavors, including the funding of military hospitals and soup kitchens.
