    review × Lady Catherine the Earl and the Real Downton Abbey Lady Catherine the Earl and the Real Downton Abbeyuite interesting especially in the light of having just read The Visitors and spent a little time with the 5th Earl of Carnarvon father of this one Another contributing factor in my enjoyment was my passion for Downton Abbey I was fascinated by how many of the plot twists in that story were ripped right from the true experiences of these people and their magnificent estate The book is historically accurate in every detail that I could personally verify Lady Carnarvon had access to all the historical records and artifacts of the home and that must have helped tremendously in fleshing out t

    review × Lady Catherine the Earl and the Real Downton Abbey Lady Catherine the Earl and the Real Downton AbbeyI enjoyed Downton Abbey so this audiobook caught my eye and it was a fun listen It’s kind of fluffy—lots of society stuff and scandal but also a look at life in Britain from WWI through WWII The narrator was really good I was actually surprised at how much the fictional TV show had echoe

    review × Lady Catherine the Earl and the Real Downton Abbey Lady Catherine the Earl and the Real Downton AbbeyFind this and other reviews at Carnarvon's Lady Catherine the Earl and the Real Downton Abbey fell into my lap My mother had learned of and recommended the book's predecessor after I'd turned her onto the television series but I hadn't found time to pick it up That said my curiosity had been sparked so it wasn't all that surprising when I jumped at the opportunity to review book two Unfortunately my optimistic expectations crumbled when face to face with reality To be clear I don't think Lady Catherine the Earl and the Real Downton Abbey a bad book There is a lot of great information for those whose knowledge of the period begins a

    review × Lady Catherine the Earl and the Real Downton Abbey Lady Catherine the Earl and the Real Downton AbbeyI gave this book 2 stars because I just couldn't force myself to finish it Reading the dictionary would have been interesting Facts Facts Facts I found it very hard to get 'connected' with any of the wealthy people who lived at Highclere during this time period Perhaps the author could have thrown in human interest stories
