I'm torn on how to best rate this book. On the one hand, it is an interesting glimpse into the lives and times of "the real Downton Abbey". On the other hand, it is a fawning, at times disjointed account of the author's ancestor and a jumbled picture of how she lived after becoming the lady of the manor.
Worth a read for people who love British history or Downton Abbey. 2 1/2 stars.
