Gail's Reviews > The Edwardians
This is a pretty good story about a young duke and the upper-class life before WWI brought it all down. Written about 1930, Vita's least favorite of her own works runs on at a pretty good pace, condemning the upper classes for their shallowness, but also looking right down the nose at the middle class. Most scornful of women, except for Viola, a shadowy sister of the main character. Kind a stupid ending, but I think that was done so that the book would remain hopeful...not sure about that. Great descriptions and very easy to read.
