This companion to Downton Abbey(seasons one and two) is filled with such lush and arresting visuals I had to do more than merely write a review! I hope this little video I made of the chapter pages and included flip-through help illustrate the gorgeous artwork, stunning layout, and massive amount of information to be absorbed in these pages.
Fans of the ITV/PBS miniseries will delight in learning more about the Edwardian time period, the daily routines and lifestyles of aristocrats and servants, and the real-life stories about people who lived during this Era. I especially enjoyed the little nuggets of information and history that came from diaries, journals, and memoirs of people who spent their lives in service. In addition, I loved reading accounts and descriptions of the real-life people who inspired characters in the series such as Lady Cora, Sir Richard Carlisle, and The Dowager Countess. I truly believe that every Downton Abbey addict and devotee NEEDS to own this sumptuous, illuminating, and thorough companion novel!
Please pardon my amateur video making abilities, this was my very first attempt. 😉
I’m now very eager to get my hands on The Chronicles of Downton Abbey: A New Era, which I understand covers the third season of Downton Abbey and more in-depth character analyses and histories.
