Fortune's Daughters is on pre-sale on Amazon

For the past twelve months I've been writing a new historical novel set in the first third of the twentieth century.  The book will be published by Lake Union, an imprint of the Amazon Group that also bought and published Three Daughters. The publication date is May 9, 2017 however the book is available for pre-order on Amazon.  

For all of the writers who read my blog, I will soon devote a new post recounting the unique personal experiences that came with my Amazon association.  

Here is the link to Fortune's Daughters and below is the prologue.


At the turn of the twentieth century, the Hempstead Plains, fertile and halcyon, bordered by the great Atlantic, blessed by God with every source of outdoor pleasure, broke off from Queens and became Nassau, the sixty-first county of New York State.

America’s bankers and industrial tycoons built castles along the rolling North Coast and manicured the rough virgin woods from Great Neck to Lloyd Harbor. J. P. Morgan, Frank Woolworth, Marshall 3Field, Harry Guggenheim, Frank Doubleday, and Asa Simpson. The names told the history of America’s stunning growth. The unblemished county was only twenty-nine miles from the squalor of glutted lower Manhattan, where the millions were made  on the corner of Broad and Wall.


I feel crass and filthy offering this title for you to purchase but I feel crass and filthy for lesser behavior.  Also, I will be posting regularly again.    X


  1. I'm excited to read this! And glad you will be posting again.

  2. It was wonderful meeting you at our meeting to discuss The Three Daughters. I enjoyed talking and laughing with you Consuelo. You're such a charming, interesting wonan. The Three Daughters was one of my favorite reads. Looking forward to exploring your other works.

    1. Lucy, thanks for commenting. I didn't get your comment until today. That evening was wonderful for me - I thought, all these wonderful women were waiting for me in East Hampton and I might have missed it if I didn't go.

  3. I feel very grateful that I read this. It is very helpful and very informative and I really learned a lot from it. music
