The Chronicles of Downton Abbey

Jessica Fellowes & Matthew Sturgis

Carefully pieced together at the heart and hearth of the ancestral home of the Crawleys, this lavish book focuses on each character individually, examining their motivations, their actions, and the inspirations behind them.
The Chronicles of Downton Abbey

The Great War has ended, but Downton Abbey is far from peaceful…

In this new era, different family members abound (including Cora's American mother, played by Shirley MacLaine) and changed dynamics need to be resolved: Which branch of the family tree will Lord Grantham’s first grandchild belong to? What will become of the servants, both old and new?

An evocative combination of story, history, and behind-the-scenes drama, it will bring fans even closer to the secret, beating heart of the house.
