Reviews
"Downton Abbey diehards busy speculating about what the future might hold for Lady Mary Crawley and the rest of the Grantham fam­ily might want to sate their obses­sion with this well-timed history of the castle's real inhabitants from 1923 to 1945."-- BUST

"The lives of the actual people who experienced love, heartache and service at Highclere Castle, the real name of the majestic building showcased on Downton Abbey, are told in this riveting book. Although technically a historical biography, the Countess of Carnarvon has written a book that reads more like an exceptional novel."-- Deseret News

"Lady Carnarvon's narrative is a vivid time-stamp of a tempestuous period in history, aptly incorporating its political situation and social structure, to satisfy history buffs and Anglophiles."-- Publishers Weekly

"Gossipy and fun, with a good history lesson--sure to delight Downton Abbey fans." -- Kirkus Reviews
