Rated 0

20th century, Biography: general, Autobiography: historical, political & military, Biography: literary, Memoirs, Prose: non-fiction

The classic memoir of one of the century's most extraordinary families.

'Whenever I read the words 'Peer's Daughter' in a headline,' Lady Redesdale once sadly remarked, 'I know it's going to be something about one of you children.'

The Mitford family is one of the centuries most enigmatic, made notorious by Nancy's novels, Diana's marriage to Sir Oswald Mosley, Unity's infatuation with Hitler, Debo's marriage to a duke and Jessica's passionate commitment to communism.

HONS AND REBELS is an enchanting and deeply absorbing memoir of an isolated and eccentric upbringing which conceals beneath its witty, light-hearted surface much wisdom and depth of feeling.
