Publisher's Summary

The three Curzon sisters - Irene, Cynthia (Cimmie) who married Sir Oswald Mosley, and Alexandra (Baba) - were at the heart of the fast and glittering world of the '20's and '30's. The sisters saw British fascism from behind the scenes and had an equally intimate view of the arrival of Wallis Simpson and the marriage and life of the Windsors. Based on unpublished letters and diaries, this is a wonderfully revealing portrait of British upper-class life during the first half of the 20th century.

Rushed end

I enjoyed this greatly. It in fact I had read the book some years ago but I enjoyed listening to it again. I just felt the end years rather rushed and squashed in.

TheNarration

The narration of this audiobook may sound; at first, quite good, however it doesn't sound right when the narrator uses the letter 'f' instead of 'th' e.g.. HH Askwith is read as 'Askwif' and 'Mary's death...' as 'Mary's def'.... I think it is awful, also 'Weather...' is recorded as 'Wefer'.. Please listen intently, this is not a criticism of the Narrator, but the audio production - very poor.
