Bestselling Historical Novelist Marie Benedict, "The Mitford Affair"

7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

From bestselling historical fiction author Marie Benedict comes an explosive novel about history's most notorious sisters. Between the World Wars, the six Mitford sisters—each more beautiful, brilliant, and eccentric than the next—dominate the English social scene. Though they've weathered scandals before, the family falls into disarray when Diana marries a fascist leader and  Unity follows her sister's lead all the way to Munich, inciting rumors that she's become Hitler's mistress. As the Nazis rise in power, novelist Nancy Mitford grows suspicious of her sisters' constant visits to Germany. Probing the ways that seemingly sensible people can be sucked into radical action, “The Mitford Affair” follows Nancy's valiant resistance efforts and the complicated choices she must make between her country or her family.Books available from The Novel Neighbor
