Bestselling author Marie Benedict’s new novel, The Mitford Affair (Sourcebooks Landmark, 2023), takes a look at the real-life Mitford sisters who dominated English political, literary, and social scenes in the 1930s. Nancy Mitford grows suspicious as her sisters Diana and Unity are drawn to fascism and Hitler. When Nancy overhears alarming conversations and uncovers disquieting documents, she must make excruciating choices between the personal and the political. A Boston College graduate, Benedict is the author/co-author of several novels, including The Personal Librarian, The Mystery of Mrs. Christie, Lady Clementine, and The Only Woman in the Room, among others.
