    Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey tells the story behind Highclere Castle, the real-life inspiration and setting for Julian Fellowes's Emmy Award-winning PBS series, and the life of one of its most famous inhabitants: Lady Almina, the fifth Countess of Carnarvon. Drawing on a rich store of materials from the archives of Highclere Castle, including diaries, letters, and photographs, the current Lady Carnarvon has written a transporting story of this fabled home on the brink of war.

    connie says: "the lowdown on Downton times"
    "Loved the story and long for a sequel!"

    Where does Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    This story was very much near the top of the audiobooks I've listened to.


    What other book might you compare Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey to and why?

    I have enjoyed many of the English novelists. I can't really compare this one to others, but felt transported to the castle and its' people; almost as if I could imagine living in that era.


    Have you listened to any of Wanda McCaddon???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. I felt sad that there was an ending to the story. Please continue with the family's lives. As least to the point where you won't be sued!
