Lady Catherine, the Earl, and the Real Downton Abbey by Fiona, Countess of Carnarvon
This is the follow-up to Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey, which tells the story of Catherine Wendell, the beautiful American woman who married Lady Almina’s son Porchey, the 6th Earl of Carnarvon. The couple presided over Highclere Castle, the estate which is the setting for the PBS show Downton Abbey.
You will discover details about the family and the staff. What the culture of the day was truly like, many parties, trips, affairs, and worrying about the financial stability of Highclere Castle. This book was written using diaries and scrapbooks from the castle’s archives.
If you love Downton Abbey like I do (“What is a weekend?”), you will enjoy the details of this real life drama while you wait for the 4th season to start in January. This book is available in Trade Paper and a Playaway digital audiobook, which is a very fun way to listen to a book!
