    Book details

James Lansbury, the Master of Colborough House and its estate, has before him the responsibility of the family home and all that it entails. Ian Burden cleverly builds a fascinating picture of what social life was like in the late 1700s with a plentiful amount of colourful characters including James's brother, Oliver who is the inevitable 'black sheep'. Filled with dinner parties, balls, the coming out of the young ladies and the usual smattering of pre-arranged marriages, along with the petty jealousies and greed, the resulting fermentation delivers. With attention to detail, Ian Burden places the reader right at the heart of the complexities of high society. With the whisperings in studies and the ladies rooms forging the future of the traditions of the landed gentry, we are feasted with a course of events that in today's society would shake the country to its foundations.
