THOSE WILD WYNDHAMS Three Sisters at the Heart of Power

by | Read by Claudia Renton

Biography & Memoir • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Author/narrator Claudia Renton presents the parlors, penchants, and peccadillos of the outrageously rich Wyndham family and their fellow aristocrats, politicians, and power brokers in late-Victorian and Edwardian England. With genteel accents appropriate to the period, Renton delivers lyrical descriptions of the beautiful and charming Wyndham sisters, Mary, Madeline, and Pamela. While the period conjures the Crawley sisters of "Downton Abbey," these were real women who exerted impressive influence on the men in their lives. In addition to powerful male relatives and prominent lovers, some of Britain's most notable statesmen, writers, and artists sought the sisters' company. Renton delivers a fine narration of her precisely wrought portraits of the Wyndhams as the Great War looms, precipitating the social upheaval that ended their grand lifestyle.
