Product description


Richard Davenport-Hines's stirring history of Ettie Fane, a woman of sophistication and beauty seemingly blighted with bad luck. The picture of English aristocratic determination, she remains uncowed to the end. (VOGUE)

as Richard Davenport-Hines demonstrates triumphantly in this superb biography, Ettie Desborough's life is a compelling and moving story of love and loss as well as an important slice of social history, and deserves to be widely read... The book is a joy to read, sparkling and fresh and full of good things. A real delight. (Jane Ridley LITERARY REVIEW)

this intelligent and well-written book... provides a rich and satisfying portrait of an age that now seems infinitely remote (THE SPECTATOR)

Davenport-Hines knows his subject well and writes about the period with insight and understanding. (CATHOLIC HERALD)
