Favorites Giveaway Hop

Thank you for joining me on my stop on the Favorites Giveaway Hop hosted by Stuck In Books. It was really difficult to pick a favorite book to highlight. Instead of one, I've chosen two which are often sold together, The Pursuit of Loveand it's sequel, Love in a Cold Climate by Nancy Mitford. The stories focus on the Radletts, minor English nobility and, like Downton Abbey, highlight the decline of the aristocracy in England after World War I, and women's changing place in society. The stories are told with a great deal of wit, some of it very cutting including this humorous passage from The Pursuit of Love.

"So we worked hard, mending and making and washing, doing any chores for Nanny rather than actually look after the children ourselves. I have seen too many children brought up without Nannies to think this at all desirable. In Oxford, the wives of progressive dons did it often as a matter of principle; they would gradually become morons themselves, while the children looked like slum children and behaved like barbarians."

After reading these two books, I went on to read about the Mitford sisters, the youngest of whom became the Duchess of Devonshire and owner of Blenheim Palace. Although learning about the Mitford sisters' personal lives led me to really dislike most of them, I did enjoy learning about Nancy's background and how it helped her craft her stories. If you want a more authentic look into a changing time period, then I encourage you to check out these two books.

I have so many favorite books that the comment space isn't big enough to list them all:) However, I am very fond of Amy Bartol's writing and books along with Stacey Marie Brown and Shelly Crane. Like I said, this list could go on forever:) Thanks so much for the chance.
