From the Gilded Age until 1914, more than 100 American heiresses invaded Britannia and swapped dollars for titles-just like Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, the first of the Downton Abbey characters Julian Fellowes was inspired to create after reading To Marry An English Lord. Filled with vivid personalities, gossipy anecdotes, grand houses, and a wealth of period details-plus photographs, illustrations, quotes, and the finer points of Victorian and Edwardian etiquette- To Marry An English Lord is social history at its liveliest and most accessible.

"In your very flattering article about books that might please fans of Downton Abbey, I was sorry that one title was missing: To Marry an English Lord. . . . It is a marvelous and entertaining study." ---Julian Fellowes, writer and creator of Downton Abbey

Love Downton Abbey?

If you love the British TV show, Downtown Abbey, you'll love this book. It is the true tales of rich American girls in search of a nobleman. And noblemen in search of money to save their ancestral homes and the lifestyle someone of their rank was entitled to.

The narrator was excellent! She pronounced everything superbly and brought the authors' wonderful words to life. I find 19th century "society" fascinating and this book did not disappoint. Bravo!
