Ok, technically it‘s from England to Berlin, but the sentiment is the same imo. 😂 Unity Mitford was one of the iconic Mitford sisters, well known socialites that included authors Nancy and Jessica Mitford.
Unity became part of Hitler‘s inner circle during WWII and was a staunch and steadfast supporter of the Nazi party. She eventually put a bullet in her head and was never able to recover. She died at 33.
A book about any one of the Mitford sisters would be rich territory for #womenshistoryreads -- THE SISTERS, which covers all six, is even richer. Writers and revolutionaries and so much more, this British clan makes a fascinating study in what draws families together & what tears them apart. #womenwriters #bookstagram #herstory #maryslovell #mitfordsisters #womenshistorymonth
Nicky is shocked, shocked by the behavior of the Mitford sisters in #somethingborrowed from a friend much too long ago. I need to move this up my TBR list. #booktober #octphotochallenge #day7 #catsoflitsy #kittenlitten
My significant otter (pictured reading, next to the cooler and my soon to be filled reading chair) went to Cornell for undergrad and introduced me to the beauty of the finger lakes region. In 2008, we rented a house on Cayuga Lake and I packed a bunch of library books. I recall this title in particular because it's a thoroughly researched and wonderfully written account of these women. #somethingforsept
Amazing, thorough, and fascinating biography of the 20th century's most notorious sisters. Each sister is beautifully (and fairly) portrayed and a good addition to your library if biographies are your happy place.
