The idle rich.,
This review is from: Ettie: The Intimate Life And Dauntless Spirit Of Lady Desborough (Hardcover)
If ever anyone epitomised the life of the idle rich this lady did. So she lost two sons in the Great War; so did a great many other people of far less monied circumstances. Ettie Desborough is the quintessence of a life-style that reached its apogee in the Edwardian era and was then largely taxed to extinction by Lloyd George, thankfully!
