I came across Nancy Mitford last year and promptly read all her writing and was absolutely bereft when I was done. But Gone with the Windsors has saved me from re-reading Mitford for the 4th time so glad to have found this and can't recommend it highly enough. Pitch perfect, biting social comedy and characters/5(64).
