When the sixth Earl Fitzwilliam died in 1902, he left behind the second largest estate in 20th-century England, valued at more than three billion dollars in today's money - a lifeline to the tens of thousands of people who worked either in the family's coal mines or on their expansive estate. The earl also left behind four sons, and the family line seemed assured. But was it? As Bailey retraces the Fitzwilliam family history, she uncovers a legacy riddled with bitter feuds, scandals, and civil unrest, as the conflict between the coal industry and its miners came to a head.

Could use a good editor...
A little long and wordy. Summary not accurate. More about coal mining than the family. A little inconsistent with sequence and generations. A bit difficult to follow the names and people in some cases. OK but did not feel I learned much.
