Description
Written by the current Lady Carnarvon, this book tells the story behind Highclere Castle, the real-life inspiration and setting for the Golden Globe– and Emmy Award–winning television series Downton Abbey, and the life of one of its most famous inhabitants, Lady Almina, the 5th Countess of Carnarvon. Much like her Masterpiece Classic counterpart Lady Cora Crawley, Lady Almina was the daughter of wealthy industrialist Alfred de Rothschild, who married his daughter off at a young age so her dowry could serve as the crucial link in the effort to preserve the Earl of Carnarvon's ancestral home. Throwing open the doors of Highclere Castle to tend to the wounded of World War I, Lady Almina distinguished herself as a brave and remarkable woman in a time of precipitous change.
