    This is the story of a close, loving family splintered by the violent ideologies of Europe between the wars. Jessica was a Communist; Debo became the Duchess of Devonshire; Nancy was one of the best-selling novelists of her day; the ethereally beautiful Diana was the most hated woman in England; and Unity Valkyrie, born in Swastika, Alaska, would become obsessed with Adolf Hitler.

    Victoria says: "Great story, terrible reader"

    What made the experience of listening to The Sisters the most enjoyable?

    I already broadly knew the story of the Mitford Sisters and looked forward to the details in this biography.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sisters?

    Specially the story of Decca and Esmond really touched me. It was beautiful.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator killed the story. Many times I had to rewind to find out what she said. Or she thought the sentence had finnished and the tone of her voice went down, only to find out that there were still some words she had forgotten ... Shame, really killed it for me


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I had thought I would be most touched by Nancy Mitfords story, but it was Decca's story that really moved me!


    Any additional comments?

    Please have someone else read the story again!!
