The couple presided over Highclere Castle, the grand estate that serves as the setting for the hit PBS show Downton Abbey. Following the First World War, many of the great houses of England faded as their owners fortunes declined in the new political and social world of the 1920s and 1930s. As war loomed, Highclere's survival as the family home of the Carnarvons was again in the balance - as was peace between the nations of Europe.

Lady Catherine, the Earl, and the Real Downton Abb
Is there anything you would change about this book?
What could The Countess of Carnarvon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
I wish the book would have focused more on both the Earl's and Lady Catherine childhoods and contained more happy stories about their children growing up and the good times in Lady Catherine's marriage to the Earl.
Which scene was your favorite?
When Lady Catherine and the Earl arrived at the Abbey after their wedding.
Could you see Lady Catherine, the Earl, and the Real Downton Abbey being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
If the show also contained Almina's story.
Any additional comments?
I hate to say this but the first book that The Countess wrote about Lady Almina was an excellent page turner. and unfortunately this book was a letdown.
