From Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Edna Ferber, called the "the greatest American woman novelist of her day" (New York Times), comes a mesmerizing and timeless saga of love, greed and power.

Saratoga Trunk unfolds the story of Clio Dulaine, an ambitious Creole beauty who more than meets her match in Clint Maroon, a handsome Texan with a head for business--and an eye for beautiful young women. Together they do battle with Southern gentry and Eastern society, but in their obsession to acquire all they've ever wanted, they fail to realize they already have all they'll ever need--each other.

An unforgettable tale of ambition, class differences, and love, Saratoga Trunk was the basis for the classic film starring Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman.

This book was released in 1941 and on page 165, Feber writes: "I just thought I would twit you with it" and twit (as a verb) means to taunt or ridicule. This makes me think of Twitter in today's terms.

It's an interesting read, especially the historical time period for New Orleans and Saratoga. A saucy gal, a plucky Texan and an assortment of interesting characters makes this a fun novel. The only drawback is that Ferber uses a lot of French and doesn't explain the terms or words in English so if you don't speak French, you may get annoyed.
