Lady Diana Spencer, of Althorp and London, tall and beautiful, a lover of music and the arts, treasured by every young aristocrat, earmarked for marriage to the Prince of Wales, haunted by the death of loved ones, and destined to die at a tragically early age. But this Lady Diana, in a life which was uncannily similar to the most recent holder of her title, lived nearly 300 years ago. In this entertaining and informative biography the reader watches Lady Diana grow up, follows her education, her training for the aristocracy and shares her passion for art and music. Her marriage to Lord John Russell; their elevation to the title of Duke and Duchess of Bedford; the sad death of Lady Diana`s first child, and her subsequent miscarriages; her early death are all chronicled in this deeply researched and empathetic biography. This first Lady Diana was a captivating, caring beauty whose untimely death, after such a short, vivacious life, was deeply mourned. Readers will be as fascinated with the life of Diana of the early 1700s as they were with the late Princess of Wales and a study of this life can be the means by which many will be able to appreciate the history of eighteenth-century Britain

Review:

"Since Massey commendably refuses to embellish upon the known facts of Diana's life by surmising her thoughts and feelings, she produces the story of an era in the history of the British aristocracy rather than of an individual."

Synopsis:

This biography of the first Lady Diana Spencer covers her education, her training for the aristocracy and shows her passion for art and music. It also describes her marriage to Lord John Russell and their elevation to the title of Duke and Duchess of Bedford. There is human sadness too.
