Women of Privilege traces the decline of a once-privileged Hudson River Valley family where the neighbours were Vanderbilts, Delanos, and Roosevelts. Susan Gillotti provides us an insight into her ancestors' heretofore secret lives, culled from private diaries, letters, and journals of the three generations of women who inhabited Grasmere - one of the great houses of the Hudson River Valley. On the surface, their lives seem ideal, but beneath that facade, there was mental illness, alcoholism, yearning for divorce, and questions of sexual identity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Susan Gillotti opens the door of this great house to explore the lives and turmoil within. Women of Privilege is a riveting read-one cannot stop until the final outcome of these powerful, but flawed, lives is revealed. Equally compelling is that the telling of these personal dramas is based on a wealth of conserved letters, diaries, and other documentation." - Peter H. Brink, former senior vice president, Programs, National Trust for Historic Preservation
