When Alice Jones, a former nanny, married Leonard Rhinelander in 1924, she became the first black woman to be listed in the Social Register as a member of one of New York's wealthiest families. Once news of the marriage became public, a scandal of race, class, and sex gripped the nation-and forced the couple into an annulment trial. "A compelling read."-"Boston Globe" "This is a great story....Earl Lewis and Heidi Ardizzone tell it very well."-"Chicago Tribune"
