• Engrossing

    Karen Robinson, Sunday Times
  • A dazzling achievement: an extraordinary story told by a phenomenally gifted writer. Within its gripping narrative lies a wonderfully rich reconstruction of the world of the Hanoverian elite, its virtues and vices wittily and movingly related

    Simon Schama
  • Aristocrats is a wonderful panorama of a book

    Victoria Glendinning, Literary Review
  • Their story is on one level as hard to put down as any of the fashionable French novels that were Caroline's favourite reading. On another it re-explores a century's history seen, so to speak, inside out through the eyes of four remarkable women who started young, lived long, did much, wrote more and have found a scarcely less remarkable biographer in Stella Tillyard

    Hilary Spurling, Daily Telegraph
  • Tillyard's moving and often brilliant book is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of aristocracy and enormously entertaining reading for everyone else

    Linda Colley, Observer
