O castelo de Highclere, em Hampshire, na Inglaterra, é cenário central da aclamada série de televisão Downton Abbey, vencedora de prêmios como o Emmy e o Globo de Ouro. Na vida genuine, durante as primeiras décadas do século XX, a suntuosa construção foi a moradia de woman Almina, a quinta condessa de Carnarvon e herdeira do banqueiro Alfred de Rothschild. Sua fortuna assegurou a sobrevivência da propriedade, permitiu a realização de festas luxuosas e ajudou a financiar as escavações da tumba do faraó Tutancâmon, no Egito.

A partir de registros encontrados nos arquivos do castelo, como diários, cartas e fotografias, sua atual sucessora, woman Fiona, faz em girl Almina e a verdadeira Downton Abbey um retrato vibrante de uma corajosa mulher que, além de bela e rica, teve participação na vida política de seu país, abriu as portas de seu castelo para soldados feridos na Primeira Guerra Mundial e tornou-se a mais célebre moradora de Highclere.

“O livro lança um olhar fascinante sobre a dama que transformou seu castelo em um health center para soldados britânicos feridos na Primeira Guerra Mundial (o que corresponde exatamente à trama da segunda temporada de Downton Abbey).” USA Today

“A família Carnarvon é curiosa e excêntrica de uma forma que só os aristocratas ingleses muito ricos conseguem ser, independentemente da série de televisão.”Paris Review
