Thanks to all of you for entering. I haven't, unfortunately, finished the book -- too much work these last few weeks! -- but I'm at the part where Rose is learning how to handle the most difficult Lady Astor. It's indeed a fascinating read.
On another note: what do you think of Downton Abbey so far? I'm liking it but wish they'd focus more on the developing relationship between Lady Sybil and Branson. I'm kind of tired of Lady Mary and Matthew ... just get married already! And it's bugging me that the storyline would have us believe that three single rich marrying-age females in that age would stay single from 1912 until 1918/1919!
