n Without Prejudice - Bad manners
The Secret Rooms, Catherine Bailey : lifestyle books

Volume 14, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1681-178X



This is a book that promises much only to disappoint. Described on the cover as a true tale of a haunted castle, a plotting duchess and a family secret, the book concerns the Dukes of Rutland, and specifically the 9th Duke, John Henry Montagu Manners, at the time of his death in 1940 one of the richest men in Britain. It is also about his mother, Violet Lindsay, an artist of some distinction who exhibited extensively throughout her life at all the major British galleries (including the Fine Art Society, the Royal Academy, and the New Gallery) and in France and the United States.
