In this juicy and entertaining companion piece to Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey, Fiona, the 8th Countess of Carnarvon, continues the saga of Highclere Castle (the filming location of the popular PBS/BBC series) with the story of Catherine Wendell, the spirited American woman who in 1923 married Lady Almina's son Lord "Porchey" Porchester, the future 6th Earl of Carnarvon. With 32 pages of family portraits and photos, the book traces the family's fortunes through 1945, the marriages and remarriages of Catherine and Porchey, and the lives of its principal staff—particularly Robert Taylor, "the perfect butler," who worked at Highclere for 50 years. "Gossipy and fun, with a good history lesson—sure to delight Downton Abbey fans."—Kirkus Reviews
