Summary
Ross goes beyond the legends of Bertha's jewels, clothes, and lavish entertaining to bring to light astonishing facts about the woman herself. Married to Potter Palmer, the millionaire real estate operator who built the Palmer House and helped to develop Chicago in its early days, her drive, ambition and skill sped the restoration of the shattered city after the Chicago fire of 1871
