A must for History Buffs!,
This review is from: Inheritance: The Story of Knole and the Sackvilles (Hardcover)
My husband bought me this book for our anniversary. I've always loved The Knole, and the beautiful deer park it's nestled in - so this book gave me a proper insight into the family that built and lived in it. Having been born & bred in Kent, I could really appreciate the Sackville's love for the county - even though their burial vault is in a tiny church in East Sussex!!! The Sackville's are an interesting bunch...lots of juicy scandals, and "friendships" - at times I forgot I was reading a biography and thought I was reading a novel! I would certainly recommend this book to anyone with a love of History - and if you just happen to love The Knole as much as I do - you won't be disappointed. Enjoy!
