I was captivated by the Downton Abbey drama on PBS and so when I discovered this book on Highclere Abbey where it was filmed and Almina Countess of Caernarvon I knew I wanted to read it and I was not disappointed The book is written by the current Countess Fiona Caernarvon who became interested in researching the subject when the script for the TV series was being written The result is a fascinating account of how a large Estate is organised and the activities of the family who owned it Almina herself was the daughter of Alfred Rothschild and therefore brought money into the family which helped to maintain the estate and their other houses and also helped to finance her husband s archeological interests It was her husband the Earl of Caernarvon who teamed with Howard Carter to discover the tomb of Tutankhamen Also of interest is the activity of the family during the war years when both Almina and her step mother where involved in financing and running hospitals for the wounded This is a great read for anyone who enjoyed the Downton Abbey series
