Oof, what a disappointment. As a fan of Downton Abbey and English history in general, I was very excited to find this book. I was expecting much more than meandering anecdotes of the wealthy residents ... Read full review

User Review  - Christine Carey - Goodreads

The book is just a series of name droppings. There is no real plot to speak of, no story to even attempt to follow. A struggle just to finish. Read full review

User Review  - Nathan - Goodreads

OMG!! I have to read this one for my book club......my description of the book: boring, awful, dreadful! I could go on. It has everything to do with the fact that I'm not interested in the royals. I could possibly be the only person that is not....I don't know Read full review

User Review  - Liz - Goodreads

Poorly written fluff-piece by the Countess of Carnarvon; entirely too much time dedicated to gushing about the alleged physical beauty of the Carnarvons and their noblesse oblige. There's some lightly ... Read full review

Oh my goodness. I could not finish this book. I bought this book when I was going through Downton Abbey withdrawals, but it made me miss the PBS miniseries even more. The biographical story takes ... Read full review
