The Glorious Guinness Girls by Emily Hourican

Out Now! Get it on Amazon

I do hope Netflix picks this up! I have episodes of The Crown playing in my head during certain aspects of, The Glorious Guinness Girls. It has that feel of fabulous parties and those on the fringe that watch. Getting to see the perspectives of the haves and the have nots through the eyes of Felicity was just fab! She doesn't fit in yet is inserted everywhere. 

Another great read for summer 2021 from Grand Central Publishing!

From the Cover...
From London to Ireland during the 1920s, this glorious, gripping, and richly textured story takes us to the heart of the remarkable real-life story of the Guinness Girls—perfect for fans of Downton Abbey and Julian Fellowes' Belgravia.

Descendants of the founder of the Guinness beer empire, they were the toast of 1920s high society, darlings of the press, with not a care in the world. But Felicity knows better. Sent to live with them as a child because her mother could no longer care for her, she grows up as the sisters’ companion. Both an outsider and a part of the family, she witnesses the complex lives upstairs and downstairs, sees the compromises and sacrifices beneath the glamorous surface. Then, at a party one summer’s evening, something happens that sends shock waves through the entire household.

Inspired by a remarkable true story and fascinating real events, The Glorious Guinness Girls is an unforgettable novel about the haves and have-nots, one that will make you ask if where you find yourself is where you truly belong.
