Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey: The Lost Legacy of Highclere Castle. I’m a huge Downton Abbey fan and this book was written by the Countess of the actual castle where the series is filmed. The history of Highclere Castle is as interesting as that of its fictional counterpart in the series—I can’t wait to bury my nose in it!
