Huguette Clark was the daughter of Senator William A Clark and Anna La Chapelle. Sen. Clark was married once before Anna and had four children that were Huguette’s step siblings. She had an older sister who died in her teens. Huguette Clark married once, but the marriage was unsuccessful, ending after only two years. Huguette Clark didn’t keep in touch even with her family. Before Huguette Clark died, she chose to live alone in a small yet very expensive hospital room. Distant relatives, her only living family, were barred from attending her funeral. After Huguette Clark’s death, the media began to uncover the three estates that were part of the Huguette Clark estate, homes that were left empty for decades. A huge art cache that Huguette had owned is going on tour before being auctioned off, the proceeds of which will go back into the Huguette Clark estate. Also, a huge antique doll collection worth over a million is part of the estate. As light was shed on the life of the reclusive Huguette Clark, questions about the treatment of Huguette Clark by her lawyer and accountant were raised. Legitimacy of Huguette Clark’s wills is also in question and how the fortune will be divvied up will now be decided by a judge unless an agreement can be reached.

    A beautiful lady in her own time. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book coupled with "Empty Mansions". Both books were about Houghett Clark. I found her very likeable and definitely very eccentric. What a life she had. I wish I had known her. She cared about other people but in ways where she didn't feel the need to tell the world; like so many people feel in today's world!! A beautiful lady in her own time.

    This is NOT a biography This was a Kindle Unlimited book, so I didn't read the reviews . I should have read them, as this was a complete waste of time. It read as a poorly cobbled together essay of tabloid articles. It focused on Huguette Clark's possessions and the dispersal, not a history of her life. If I had paid money for this, I would have been even more irritated. This is NOT a biography This was a Kindle Unlimited book, so I didn't read the reviews .

    I read this in anticipation of reading Empty Mansions, which is a much more detailed biography of this woman. This book actually is better served as its outline. The story, however, is truly a fascinating one.

    This is a true story about Huguette's life and her family, from the time her dad was a railroad and silver magnate. Their home in New York among the Vanderbilt's and Rockerfellers was built to opulence and then torn down to build another. This is a sad tale of a woman who ages and family really just abandons her, taking as much as they could get out of the estate while she is left ill in her later life living in a room by herself in hospital to be forgotten.

    Not much to go on A very bare bones biography. An heiress who closets herself away as a young person. There were painful losses that lead to that but this is just flat. Family history barely sketched out. The usual piranhas tank after the estate.

    Too short This could have been such a good book. Fascinating subject, incredible life , so much of what many Americans dream of. But Pfftt , it was over, like a pretty firework. If I were an author, I'd be ashamed to put out nine pages and call it a book, essay maybe........ Too short This could have been such a good book.
