Juliet Nicholson’s A House Full of Daughters takes us through seven generations of women. This is one woman’s investigation into the nature of family, memory, the past, and above all love. All families have their myths and legends, for years Juliet Nicolson accepted hers – the dangerous beauty of her flamenco dancing great-great-grandmother Pepita, the flirty manipulation of her great-grandmother Victoria, the infamous eccentricity of her grandmother Vita Sackville-West, her mother’s Tory-conventional back ground. But then Juliet started to question. As she did so, she sifted fact from fiction, uncovering details and secrets long held just out of sight.
