The new countess

Weldon, Fay2013
Books
The year is 1905 and the Dilbernes are expecting royal guests. Edward VII and his mistress Alice Keppel have invited themselves for a shooting weekend, and now the household is in a frenzy of preparation. Menus must be mouth-watering, fashions must be new, and children must be seen and not heard. But there are problems upstairs and below. Lady Isobel is at war with her daughter-in-law over the upbringing of newborn Edgar, heir to the Dilberne fortune. The servants are hysterical at the thought of hosting the King. And clever, progressive Rosina has finally admitted to falling in love. This is a witty tale of manners and morals, and commoners and countesses.
