It’s no secret that I love “Downton Abbey”—from the Dowager Countess’s zingers, to the servants’ downstairs drama, to the gorgeous set and costumes. So I would be thrilled to be on the receiving end of this week’s contest, in which we’ll give away four books that would appeal to fans of “Downton.”
- The Chronicles of Downton Abbey will take you behind the scenes of Julian Fellowes’ beloved drama. (Read more.)
- The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton, set primarily during the London Blitz, is a twisting and turning story of a secrets, love and war. (Read more.)
- Ashenden by Elizabeth Wilhide traces the history of a grand British home—and the people who live there—from the 18th century to the present. (Read more.)
- Abdication by Juliet Nicolson is set in 1936 England and involves King Edward VIII’s love affair with Wallis Simpson—though it’s less about the royals themselves than about the lives they touch. (Read more.)
