9780099554394: The Devonshires: The Story of a Family and a Nation
Críticas:

"A vivid read, crowded with characters and colour" (Lucy Lethbridge Observer)

"Jostling with the eccentric and engaging characters from a grand family, Hattersley deftly tells a jaunty story about Britishness through the ages" (Kathryn Hughes Mail on Sunday)

"A seriously comfortable armchair, a magnificent old duffer of a book that deftly knits together a national story into the fabric of a family drama. It does this with all the warmth and affection for history that mark out a former statesman and a first-class storyteller" (Ian Kelly The Times)

"A balanced look at a traditional tale of aristocratic power and prestige" (Hallie Rubenhold BBC History Magazine)

"This jaunty magnificent book tells the history of Britain just as much as it does of one family" ( Daily Express)
