Admittedly the books starts off a little slow, but give it a few pages, and it'll pull you right in. The book offers a historical overview of the society, culture, fashions, family life, romance and current events of the period in which the TV show, by now an international phenomenon, is set. It also includes lots of photos as well as behind the scenes photos and details.
If you are a Downton Abbey fan, as I and Ms. Morgan are here at the library, you will want to read this book, and I recommend that you do so. You won't regret it. It is available in county.
