Reviews

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"Almina was a woman of great charm and courage."
--New York Times Book Review

"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.)"
--USA Today

"Gives the juicy backstory 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
