This is the moment I’ve been waiting for (amid being distracted by the media frenzy surrounding the Royal baby!) My editor from The History Press sent me a parcel today containing a note: “First copy hot off the press. Hope you’re happy with it!” I am beyond happy with my book. Two years ago, as I sat scribbling notes in my garden, I could not have imagined the final outcome. It is a beautiful book and very vintage in its appearance…very Mitford. The b&w photographs look beautiful. I’m grateful to everybody: Mitford relatives, friends and fans alike who helped me with the research and gave me permission to use unseen material. The book will be available to purchase next Thursday and I only hope that whoever has ordered it will not be disappointed!
