The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post by Allison Pataki Book Summary

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • “Marvelous . . . I just had to be there with the Post cereal heiress through every twist and turn.”—Martha Hall Kelly, New York Times bestselling author of Lilac Girls

“New-money heiress Marjorie Post isn’t content to remain a society bride as she remakes herself into a savvy entrepreneur, a visionary philanthropist, a presidential hostess, and much more.”—Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Rose Code

Mrs. Post, the President and First Lady are here to see you. . . . So begins another average evening for Marjorie Merriweather Post. Presidents have come and gone, but she has hosted them all. Growing up in the modest farmlands of Battle Creek, Michigan, Marjorie was inspired by a few simple rules: always think for yourself, never take success for granted, and work hard—even when deemed American royalty, even while covered in imperial diamonds. Marjorie had an insatiable drive to live and love and to give more than she got. From crawling through Moscow warehouses to rescue the Tsar’s treasures to outrunning the Nazis in London, from serving the homeless of the Great Depression to entertaining Roosevelts, Kennedys, and Hollywood’s biggest stars, Marjorie Merriweather Post lived an epic life few could imagine.
 
Marjorie’s journey began gluing cereal boxes in her father’s barn as a young girl. No one could have predicted that C. W. Post’s Cereal Company would grow into the General Foods empire and reshape the American way of life, with Marjorie as its heiress and leading lady. Not content to stay in her prescribed roles of high-society wife, mother, and hostess, Marjorie dared to demand more, making history in the process. Before turning thirty she amassed millions, becoming the wealthiest woman in the United States. But it was her life-force, advocacy, passion, and adventurous spirit that led to her stunning legacy.
 
And yet Marjorie’s story, though full of beauty and grandeur, set in the palatial homes she built such as Mar-a-Lago, was equally marked by challenge and tumult. A wife four times over, Marjorie sought her happily-ever-after with the blue-blooded party boy who could not outrun his demons, the charismatic financier whose charm turned to betrayal, the international diplomat with a dark side, and the bon vivant whose shocking secrets would shake Marjorie and all of society. Marjorie did everything on a grand scale, especially when it came to love.

Bestselling and acclaimed author Allison Pataki has crafted an intimate portrait of a larger-than-life woman, a powerful story of one woman falling in love with her own voice and embracing her own power while shaping history in the process.

Great story, fascinating and page turner. Story of an incredible woman. Surprisingly disciplined, generous and creative. Exemplifies the joys and heart breaks in life.

Loved it. Fantastic! Beautifully written.

Interesting but not engaging. While interested in some facts about her life, I was not enamored by Ms. Post. She comes across as stereo-typical self centered rich person. Did she not think that marrying men she just met might have contributed to her series of divorces?

So entertaining❤️. Love the author’s ability to make you “see” the characters!

A well written and researched book about an amazing woman. This book is inspiring. Marjorie Post was an amazing women who gave so much back to society. Her father taught her to those who have been given much they have the responsibility to give back.

MMP. Excellent novel depicting the life of this remarkable woman. Well written and engaging. I wished it could continue on

The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post. Boring!

A Material Woman. If this is the sum and substance of Miss Post’s life, it was a sad life indeed. Her way of keeping her marriages together was to build another house or host a gala party for her rich friends. True, this was not her talking, but I never saw that she read a book, or that she understood and appreciated all of those concerts and ballets she went to. It was all about the size of her boat or the size of her diamonds. All the while she claimed to be this country bumpkin from Battle Creek, Michigan. Nothing inspirational here at all.

Wonderful review of history along with good story telling. This book was fascinating and well worth reading. Lots of descriptions of a lavish lifestyle that could have been minimized.

File under things you never knew. Rich and vibrant historical novel following the life of MMP. I learned so much about this powerhouse of a woman who was unabashedly strong, patriotic and lived more in her 80-some years than five people! Great read!

Too much information to go deep. The choice of first person narrating a novel about a complex woman was a poor one. The author obviously did extensive research about content but the result was a superficial smorgasbord of Mrs. Post’s life. Would have been robo ting had the author told the story in third person choosing highlights of Marjorie’s life. The first person made Mrs Post seem superficial and spoiled.

🩵🩵🩵. This needs to be a movie!!!

Great idea but too wordy. I first loved this book and the whole story was fascinating at first. Got to the middle and the plot line stalled, I didn’t finish the book, too much opulence, parties, & ridiculous spending. I got bored

I too have lead a glorious life!. A budding life that is savored like dried flowers, beauty forever remembered if but a little faded. I too have lead a glorious life. Historically correct and enchantingly written. This book was an absolute masterpiece!
