Although I enjoyed learning more about this time period and WWI, I found myself getting caught up too much in all the people involved, not knowing a lot of the mentioned names. Overall, I enjoyed the ... Read full review

User Review  - Bev Wolff - Goodreads

I found the chapters about WW I most interesting to read, but very devastating, too. What a waste of so many lives. On the opening day of the Battle of the Somme, July 1, 1916, the British Army ... Read full review

User Review  - Johanna Haas - Goodreads

Very interesting upstairs view of life in Victorian-Edwardian times in the castle where Downton Abbey is filmed. Lord Carnarvon led the team who discovered King Tut's Tomb and Lady Carnarvon was the love-child of a Rothschild. Less well-written than it is fascinating. Read full review

User Review  - Heather Hamel - Goodreads

Good book about a historical family. My only two wishes is that it would have read a bit more like a novel since it's such an intriguing story and WAY less on WWI. Not only did I find myself skimming after a while, I skipped entire chapters based on their war-related titles. Read full review

I like historical fiction and non fiction. This was a nice light book covering a minor aristocratic family at the turn of the 20th century. It is extremely Eurocentric and does nothing the address the ... Read full review

Reads almost like a historical novel. The present Countess writes like she is talking to you about family. I was most fascinated by the Lady Almina's life leading up to WWI and the war, that was very ... Read full review
