If you love Downton Abbey you will love the real Highclere even more!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey: The Lost Legacy of Highclere Castle (Hardcover)
I bought this fabulous book as I loved watching Downton Abbey and love our English Heritage and these amazing castles.
The book is simply amazing and surpassed expectations. If you love the TV show Downton Abbey you will simply adore the book on Lady Almina and Highclere and want to know more about the Carnavon family and Highclere. I love the way it is written and easy to read with fabulous historical detail about the war, which I have to say, I did not know. I've also never been interested in historical accounts and am now considering finding something else along these lines (any suggestions welcome). I loved the facination Lord Carnavon had with Egypt and would have liked more detail, but I guess there is only so much you can put in one VERY VERY readable and thoroughly enjoyable book. I hope the Countess of Carnavon has read the reviews and taken the comments on board and might well be considering putting pen to paper again! Although I guess its very hard work! I just finished this book in time to watch the next series of Downton Abbey coming soon. Sept 2012.
