Review :

"Gives the juicy back story behind last year's Emmy-winning 'Masterpiece Theater' drama"
--"New York Times

""If you can't wait for the new season of 'Downton Abbey'...this one's for you....a revealing portrait of the changing times."
-"New York Post"

"[A] fascinating insight into how the seriously rich once lived."
-"Newsweek Daily Beast
"
"The present Lady Carnarvon, who tapped the family archives for her comprehensive research, dramatically captures the estate during the pre-war and war years, and paints a compelling...portrait of Lady Almina."
-"Newark Star-Ledger"

"The more interesting and entertaining book is "Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey: The Lost Legacy of Highclere Castle". Written by the castle's current countess, Lady Fiona Carnarvon, the Eighth Countess of Carnarvon and great-granddaughter-in-law of Lady Almina, the book is a fascinating look at the woman of the house who turned her castle into a hospital for wounded British soldiers returning from World War I. (It corresponds perfectly with this season's war story line on "Downton Abbey".)"

Description du livre Random House USA Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The real-life inspiration and setting for the Emmy Award-winning Downton Abbey, Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey tells the story behind Highclere Castle and the life of one of its most famous inhabitants, Lady Almina, the 5th Countess of Carnarvon. Drawing on a rich store of materials from the archives of Highclere Castle, including diaries, letters, and photographs, the current Lady Carnarvon has written a transporting story of this fabled home on the brink of war.

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. This rich tale contrasts the splendor of Edwardian life in a great house against the backdrop of the First World War and offers an inspiring and revealing picture of the woman at the center of the history of Highclere Castle.
