Wharton completed about three quarters of this novel by her death in 1937. She left an outline and since her death, other authors have attempted to finish the story. Julian Fellows cited this story of rich American heiresses seeking titled English husbands as his inspiration for Downton Abbey. It is one of her more ebullient novels, full of strong and lively female characters.
