Welcome to the Gilded Series
Learn about The Gilded Age and Visit the Mansions of Newport, RI
Newport, RI, the setting for book 2 in the Gilded Series, is a stunning seaside city with impressively gilded mansions, great restaurants, a cobblestone downtown and a huge sailing community. No wonder so many of Marie’s books are inspired by Newport. In addition to the Gilded Series, Treading Water, Georgia on My Mind, The Fall and Love at First Flight are either set in Newport or include visits to the city. Tourists can sightsee and participate in many events while also allowing the scenes from Marie’s stories to come to life, again. Lear more about the Gilded Age by visiting the Newport Historical Society.
