One of the funniest, sharpest novels about love and growing up ever written, Nancy Mitford’s classic is now a major BBC and Prime Video series directed by Emily Mortimer and starring Lily James, Andrew Scott and Dominic West ‘He was the great love of her life you know.”Oh, dulling,’ said my mother, sadly, ‘One always thinks that. Every, every time.’ Oh, the tedium of waiting to grow up! Longing for love, obsessed with weddings and sex, Linda and her sisters and cousin Fanny are on the lookout for the perfect lover. But finding Mr Right is much harder than any of the sisters had thought.
Linda must suffer marriage first to a stuffy Tory MP and then to a handsome and humourless communist, before finding real love in war-torn Paris . . .
