The story of Pamela Jackson, nee Mitford, is a fascinating one. Despite shunning the bright city lights that her sisters so desperately craved, she had many wild adventures of her own and was very much involved in the activities of her extraordinary family, picking up the many pieces when things went disastrously wrong - which they often did - but was always content to be her own delightful self. Loyal to the core, she inherited from her mother, Lady Redesdale, the constancy and kindness that underpinned the wilder exploits of the famous Mitford family. Indeed, innocence, along with courage and kindness, was one of her remarkable qualities. But it was the innocence of a woman who had lived and suffered, loved and lost, and overcome adversity to enjoy an unusually contented old age. Journalist Diana Alexander, who was her friend for many years, tells a captivating story which has never been told before, of 'Gentle Pamela' as her lifelong admirer John Betjeman described her.

Book Description The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Pamela Jackson, nee Mitford, is perhaps the least well known of the illustrious Mitford sisters, and yet her story is just as captivating, and more revealing. Despite shunning the bright city lights that her sisters so desperately craved, she was very much involved in the activities of her extraordinary family, picking up the many pieces when things went disastrously wrong - which they so often did. Joining her sisters on many adventures, including their meeting with Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany, Pamela quietly observed the bizarre, funny and often tragic events that took place around her. Through her eyes, we are given a view of the Mitfords never seen before. `Loyal to the core,' she possessed `the constancy and kindness that underpinned the wilder exploits of the Mitford family. Indeed, innocence, along with courage and kindness, was one of her remarkable qualities. But it was the innocence of a woman who had lived and suffered, loved and lost, and overcome adversity'. Journalist Diana Alexander, who was Pamela's friend for many years, here reveals the unknown Mitford, or, as her lifelong admirer John Betjeman described her, `Gentle Pamela'.
