The series is based on an unfinished novel written by Wharton. Despite being unfinished at the time of Wharton’s death in 1937, The Buccaneers was published in 1938, and was eventually finished by Marion Mainwaring in 1993 through the use of Wharton’s detailed outlining of the novel as guidance on the plot. The book revolves around five wealthy and ambitious American girls and their guardians as they look to try and find husbands who marry various impoverished Englishmen.
