    1. Have read several books by Fred Mustard Stewart (Ellis Island, Glitter and Gold and the Savage series) and never been disappointed! Love historical fiction genre that starts in the early 1900’s.Century covers 1860 – 1960. An Italian princess meets a NY banker’s wife and the story follows both families and subsequent generations.
