Julian Fellowes's Belgravia
A tale of secrets and scandal set in 1840s London from the creator of DOWNTON ABBEY
By Julian Fellowes
The brand new story from Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, set in 1840s London.
'A wonderful read. Fellowes is as witty as ever, yet again capturing those discerning older, upper-class women perfectly... a modern classic that will fill any Downton-shaped hole' DAILY EXPRESS
Julian Fellowes's Belgravia is the story of a secret. A secret that unravels behind the porticoed doors of London's grandest postcode. Set in the 1840s when the upper echelons of society began to rub shoulders with the emerging industrial nouveau riche, Belgravia is peopled by a rich cast of characters. But the story begins on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. At the Duchess of Richmond's now legendary ball, one family's life will change for ever...
'Races along with all the page-turning suspense of a thriller . . . a clever, involving read that brilliantly summons up a bygone world' Fanny Blake, WOMAN & HOME
