Description
Information
Alice Keppel and her daughter Violet Trefusis were both, in their ways, legendary lovers. Mrs Keppel, mistress of Edward VII and great-grandmother to Camilla Parker-Bowles, was the acceptable face of adultery. For Violet, romance proved tragic and destructive as her mother used all the force at her command - charm, determination, money, to repress her love affair with Vita Sackville-West.

A dark and Gothic tale of passion and cruelty, of an indomitable mother and a frail daughter, is a thoughtful and elegant study in hypocrisy of the Great British Marriage which could accommodate just about any infidelity so long as outward shows were maintained.
