Summary
Every family has its myths and legends, especially a family of aristocratic publishers, diplomats, and artists who have resided in two of the greatest houses in England. For many years, Juliet Nicolson accepted the lore that was handed down by previous generations--tales of the dangerous beauty of her flamenco-dancing great-great-grandmother Pepita, the flirty manipulations of her great-grandmother Victoria, the infamous eccentricity of her grandmother Vita Sackville-West, her mother's Tory-conventional background. But then Nicolson, a distinguished historian, started to ask questions. As she did, she sifted fact from fiction, uncovering details and secrets long held just out of sight. A House Full of Daughters is a journey through the lives of seven generations of women. From the nineteenth-century slums of Málaga, the diplomatic world of fin-de-siècle Washington, D.C., an English boarding school during World War II, Chelsea in the 1960s, and New York City in the 1980s, these women emerge for Nicolson as individuals in their own right, but also as integral to who she is and where she has come from. A remarkable work of memoir and history, this is one woman's clear-eyed investigation into the nature of family and memory. As Nicolson finds uncomfortable patterns reflected in these distant and more recent versions of herself, she takes up the challenge to embrace the good and avoid the hazards that have ensnared previous generations.--From dust jacket
