The six Mitford Sisters lived in the 20th century and much of their varied lives are synchronous with major events that defined that time.
Diana was married to Oswald Mosley and a lifelong fascist. Unity was a great close friend of Hitler’s. Jessica, was a dyed-in-the-wool communist. Deborah became Duchess of Devonshire. Nancy was a well-loved novelist. Gail Louw’s astonishing one woman tour de force follows four of the `Mitford Sisters through the world changing events of the twentieth century.
