5 Reviews

Rated 0

Historical fiction

Following the bestselling success of The Glorious Guinness Girls, comes a stunning new novel following the three enigmatic sisters as they set out on married life.

'An utterly captivating insight into these fascinating women and the times they lived in ... it's an absolute page-turner' Irish Independent

'Masterfully and glamorously told ... essential reading for history and gossip lovers alike' Sunday Business Post

'An enthralling tale that will dazzle and delight ... If you loved the drama of The Crown, then you will adore The Guinness Girls: A Hint of Scandal with its lavish descriptions and its glorious insight into this truly fascinating family.' Swirl and Thread

'As engrossing and page-turning as the first [book] ... I loved it' Louise O'Neill

As Aileen, Maureen and Oonagh - the three privileged Guinness sisters, darlings of society in Dublin and London -
settle into becoming wives and mothers, they quickly discover that their gilded upbringing could not have prepared them for the realities of married life.
For the eldest, Aileen, in Luttrellstown Castle outside Dublin, being married offers far less than she had expected;
for outspoken Maureen, in the crumbling Clandeboye in Northern Ireland, marriage means intense passion, but fierce
rows; while Oonagh's dream of romantic love in London is shattered by her husband's lies.
And as 1930s Britain becomes increasingly politically polarised, the sisters' close friends, the Mitfords, find themselves under the media glare - causing the Guinness women to examine their own lives.
Inspired by true-life events, The Guinness Girls: A Hint of Scandal is a sweeping, epic novel of Ireland and Britain in the grip of change, and a story of how three women who wanted for nothing were about to learn that they couldn't have everything.
