Diamonds & Sparkle: A Closer Look at Nancy Mitford’s Love in a Cold Climate: Margaret Norwich

"An opportunity to revisit this enchanting but subversive story of love, attraction and intrigue within the British aristocracy in the 1940's, with characters so memorable and so finely drawn, that a kiss and a shiver became the most popular charade even at royal parties, for years to come!  Bright, sparkling and tender: the perfect summer read!"
