Wentworth is today a crumbling and forgotten palace in Yorkshire. Yet just 100 years ago it was the ancestral pile of the Fitzwilliams' - an aristocratic clan whose home and life were fuelled by coal mining.
This is the story of their spectacular decline: of inheritance fights; rumours of a changeling and of lunacy; philandering earls; illicit love; war heroism: a tragic connection to the Kennedys'; violent deaths: mining poverty and squalor; and a class war that literally ripped apart the local landscape.
The audiobook downloaded from chapter 23 onwards so I have been unable to listen to it.
I do not have chapters 1 to 23 and do not know how to obtain them or why only half a book (the second half!) downloaded. :(
