Overview
Saxonford is a diverting and amusing account of the rise, fall, and extinction of four great aristocratic English families, exploring the advantages and snares of hereditary titles from Her Majesty Queen Victoria to the lowest form of vacuous viscount, set in a mire of inbreeding, murder, madness, disease and historically accuracy. This is a tale of scandalous Dukes and Duchesses, Lords and Ladies, vying for Royal favour in the bare necessities of privilege, title, precedence and lineage. Reminiscent of Waugh and Mitford, this novel is immensely available to a modern audience, an incestuous cousin of Brideshead Revisited and Barton Abbey.
