A "NEW YORK TIMES" NOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR
Praise for "Mrs. Keppel and Her Daughters":
"Fascinating...and richly textured...Souhami's style [is] vital, brave and full of flair". -- "The New York Times Book Review"
"Vivid and fast-paced, Souhami's story is wonderful--a must for those caught up in the drama now playing itself out among the descendants of King Edward and his Machiavellian mistress". -- "People"
"Lavishly illustrated, pungent with luxurious detail and hardheaded investigation, this is popular history to relish". -- "Publishers Weekly"
"An electrifying study of Mrs. Keppel--famously King Edward VII's mistress--and of her daughter Violet Trefusis--notoriously Vita Sackville-West's lover.... This dark and Gothic tale of passion and cruelty, of an indomitable mother and a frail daughter, is the more shocking for its imperturbable, elegant settings--Biarritz, London drawing rooms, Florentine villas, and English country houses". -- "Daily Telegraph" (London)
