Synopsis

The extraordinary life of Marguerite Chapin Caetani, patron of art, gardener of Ninfa

In The American Princess, Laurie Dennett tells the fascinating story of an American heiress who, in 1911, married Roffredo Caetani, Seventeenth Duke of Sermoneta, becoming not only one of the three women most closely associated with the famous garden of Ninfa, but also an important patron of 20th-century international literature. The American author and scholar Jay Parini writes: "This is a vibrant and brilliant biography that has the narrative rhythm of a great novel. It is an exceptional story, well written, beautifully conceived, and very instructive. "
