Abstract:

This volume recounts the story of Violet Trefusis (1894-1972) and her mother Alice Keppel (1868-1947), lover to Britain's Edward VIII. Of all the Edward's mistresses, the most renowned, permanent, and respected was Alice Keppel. Mrs. Keppel had two daughters. Violet, the elder, became somewhat famous herself as a personality and a writer. This book is about what made Mrs. Keppel tick and the consequences of her celebrity and larger-than-life personality on Violet, growing up in her shadow. Violet is chiefly remembered for her lesbian affair with the poet Vita Sackville-West. She also wrote novels and many non-fiction works, both in English and French. Alice became one of the best society hostesses of the Edwardian era. Her charm and discretion impressed London society and while at the King's court, she held considerable influence.
