'I was enthralled and charmed by this group biography of all six Mitford sisters, which tells the intertwined stories of their stylish scandalous lives in a fresh and admirably concise way – and with a striking contemporary sensibility too' Bookseller, Editor's Choice.
'Engaging ... Thompson's is an astute, highly readable and well assembled book, and she writes with particular intelligence about the sisters' self-mythologising and their ongoing hold on the public imagination' The Observer.
'Thompson is marvellous at mapping and explicating the webs or skeins of sibling rivalry [in this] gripping and appalling family saga' The Times.
'The first book to consider "the whole six-pack" in the post-Mitford age. And what a remarkable story it is ... Thompson retells the story with great style and illuminating detail' The Independent.
'Thompson has written this book with generosity and delicacy. It is amusing, poignant and perceptive as a portrait of the sisters' long lives and changing times, and of their own apparent inability to change with them' Book Oxygen.
'A breezy vigorous argument for the sisters' powerful, unrepeatable significance ... Thompson combines a subtle understanding of history with enjoyably crisp, tart insights: this is an excellent place either to begin with the Mitfords or proceed with them' Mail on Sunday.
'I was captivated by this group biography, which tells the story of the Mitfords' sensational lives in a fresh and concise way' Sunday Express.
'A wonderful telling of an extraordinary family living in extraordinary times' Yorkshire Gazette & Herald.
'This is a careful, realistic assessment of their virtues, follies and charm' Daily Mail.
'Not the first-ever book about the Mitford sisters - but it might well be the best of the lot' Reader's Digest.
The contrasting lives of the Mitford sisters – stylish, scandalous and tragic by turns – hold up a mirror to upper-class life before and after the Second World War.See all Product description
