The Gilded Edge

Two Audacious Women and the Cyanide Love Triangle That Shook America

Catherine Prendergast

This engaging and poignant true story follows the lives of two women living in earthquake-ravaged San Francisco and the Monterey Peninsula during the late Gilded Age. They each pursue different ambitions: Nora, a brilliant writer, seeks artistic recognition and refuge among the celebrated counterculturalists, while Carrie, a long-suffering wife, seeks stability through her marriage. Their paths cross when Nora finds herself in a desperate situation and takes refuge with the Sterlings, launching a love triangle that ends in tragedy. This forgotten chapter raises important questions about literary history and portrays America at a turning point in the early 1900s. This is a must-read for anyone intrigued by stories of strong women and historic American progressivism.
