At nineteen, Sebastian is a duke and heir to a vast country estate. A deep sense of tradition binds him to his inheritance, though he loathes the social circus he is a part of. Deception, infidelity and greed hide beneath the glittering surface of good manners.

Among the guests at a lavish party are two people who will change Sebastian's life: Lady Roehampton, who will initiate him in the art of love; and Leonard Anquetil, a polar explorer who will lead Sebastian and his free-spirited sister Viola to question their destiny....

A portrait of fashionable society at the height of the era, The Edwardians revealed all that was glamorous about the period - and all that was to lead to its downfall.

Carole Boyd reads Vita Sackville West's classic novel of elegance and decadence.

    " An interesting read...a very different time written by the lover of Virginia Woolf. "

    " Shockingly good. I did not know who Vita Sackville-west was and learned she was a part of the bloomsbury set and the inspiration for Woolf's "Orlando", which I will read next. I loved that this wild woman decided to write a best sellar and then did it. Also, found the culture and mindset of the British aristocracy has only incrementally shifted over a century. Kept thinking of Diana and understanding just how radical her behavior was to divorce the Prince and peel back the facade from royal and aristocratic life. "

    " I was a little put off by this at the beginning, but then I was surprised at how good it was. Quite insightful. An insider's view of a segment of English society few could experience. "
