ITV and PBS's Downton Abbey is one of the most watched, acclaimed, and awarded television shows in the world, but story of its real-life inspiration is just as captivating as the British period drama. In fact, as the present Countess of Cararvon tells it, the saga of Highclere Castle's Lady Almina reads like a full-bodied prospectus for a Masterpiece Theatre series. Lady Fiona Cararvon uses diaries, family letters, and photographs to illuminate the eventful life of a Rothschild daughter who rose above her class with brave and selfless action.
