Fascinating family from before my time.

Really enjoying this book that we will discuss at my Book Club meeting next week. I knew nothing about this family. Now I want to read more - which is always an indicator of a good book to me.

    Highly recommended

    I had come across the names of one or another of the Mitford sisters in various contexts and although intrigued by them I had never read a biography until now. I found the book a fascinating read and well worth reading by anyone interested in the history of the era leading up the the Second World War.

    Great story of interesting women

    Great story about some sisters who grew up in Britain around WW II. They were politically active and interacted with Hitler to Churchill . The only reason I did not give it 5 STARS was that none of the pictures came thru on the Nook! Hope they update it with pictures soon.

    Fascinating

    A fascinating family history. It made me want to read Nancy Mitford's novels -- which were excellent and funny.
