Here is the gilt-framed portrait of a family through 5 generations of love, ambition and success… Julius Millinder, schooled in the golden age of robber barons. Cyrus Millinder, who had everything money could buy–including a mistress. Augusta Millinder, whose impressive bank balance would never become a joint-checking account. Cousin Collier Millinder, who had every conceivable luxury, but not enough money to cover the sins of his past.
