Everyone has hear of the Guinness family but I’ve never known much about the girls. This clears all of that up and very well.
This was a book of truths and an imagined tale. The author has done her research and this was a joy to read.
These girls seemed to have it all. The money, the name, and all the tight restrictions of the time. Fliss isn’t one of them and yet she is. It is her story most of all and it was an emotional one.
With their mother indisposed with some vague ailment, Fliss is charged with chaperoning the girls. She sleeps with them and eats with them but she knows she is not one of them.
The girls led very interesting and tragic lives and it is all here in this captivating book.
The author writes beautifully and the energy jumps off the page. Very Well Done!
