Well-written, sometimes fascinating, brutally honest memoir of seven generations of the Sackville-West/Nicholson family. I liked it. ( )
  bogopea | Nov 7, 2016 |
Each chapter in this fascinating book concerns itself with famous ancestors, 2 daughters and a granddaughter of Juliet's.
From her Spanish great, great grandmother, Pepita, growing up in Malaga, becoming a famous flamenco dancer and feted all over Spain via Vita Sackville West, the sometimes ambivalent writer who's first love was Knole in Kent, a grand family house now owned by The National Trust.
Juliet writes fascinating life stories of the many strong independent ladies that are part of her family history.
A great book to dip into as each part can be read independently.
Very highly recommended. ( )
