I enjoyed this book as well. I had followed the Huguette Clark story bit by bit over the years as information became available, the book is a great summary of the story. One fact I found fascinating was that since her father was born in 1839 and was 67 when Huguette was born, the combined lifespan of the father and daughter was an astonishing 172 years! -- Peter on 01/21/2014
