Summary

Love affairs, lies, scandals, secrets.... 

Aileen. Maureen. Oonagh. The private lives of the Glorious Guinness Girls fascinated a nation. But privilege always has its price.... 

Granddaughters of the first earl of Iveagh, the three daughters of Ernest Guinness are glamorous society girls, skipping from party to party, the toast of Dublin and London. Darlings of the press, with not a care in the world. 

But what beautiful ruins lie behind the glass of their privileged worlds? The love affairs, the scandals, the tragedies, the secrets.... 

Inspired by fascinating real events and a remarkable true story, from the the brittle glamour of 1920s London to the turmoil of Ireland's War of Independence, this dramatic, richly textured novel takes us into the heart of a beautiful but often painful hidden world. 

If you loved Downton Abbey, Julian Fellowes' Belgravia, Paula McLain's The Paris Wife or Therese Anne Fowler's Z Is for Zelda, you will adore The Glorious Guinness Girls
