There is a saying More money problems After reading this book I think there should be an addendum for nobility More titles drama The Secret Rooms is the story of the 9th Duke of Rutland John Henry Montagu Manners and the family secrets he tried to hide Before John died of pneumonia in April 1940 he locked himself into his archive rooms at Belvoir Castle and would not come out working ceaselessly on a mysterious project even against his doctor s orders to rest After John died his son closed the rooms and no one was allowed in them for nearly 60 yearsJohn s obsession with collecting struck me as pathological The pursuit and ordering of objects appeared to lie at the core of his personality It seemed to go far beyond mere interest it was all consuming a compulsion It looked as if these collections represented some sort of refuge a form of escape into a private world But what had he wanted to escape fromIn 2008 writer Catherine Bailey was working on a book about World War I and was one of the few who was granted access to the closeted archives called the Muniment Rooms While going through family letters and papers she found several gaps in the collection as if John had deliberately removed correspondence to try and hide something Bailey got on the trail and ended up writing a very different kind of book than what she started What she found was a lot of family drama a scandalous coverup and at the heart of it a deeply unhappy child At one point my heart broke for sweet little John and I wished I could have given him a hugview spoilerI won t give away all of the details but the missing correspondence involves three different things the death of a child a bitter fight over an inheritance and a suspicious absence during the war hide spoiler

An absolutely corking tale better by far than most novels I ve read recently I don t think I ve ever read a non fic book with so many cliff hangers My one and only bug bear and it is but a small gripe is with the chapters on the Great War where there is to my mind a lot of superfluous detail about the war Obviously some historical background is necessary to put the events of John s life into context I don t think we needed uite so much as we got I can t help but feel that Catherine Bailey s original intention to write a book about the Belvoir Volunteers the mysterious army of ploughmen horsemen and field workers an entire generation lost to the war meant she found herself with a lot of surplus to reuirements research on her hands that was such good stuff she was determined to put it in anyway It s interesting stuff in its own right but it s not all pertinent to John s story and it does slow the otherwise terrific pace dreadfullyIt is my only complaint and it s a VERY small one In every respect this is a richly detailed beautifully but not overly descriptive engaging and terrifically well written biography of a privileged life with than its fair share of mysteries It s a crying shame Ms Bailey never discovered the whole truth about Haddon s death I so wanted to know It seems John covered the details around that particular tragedy far too wellThe Secret Rooms is a wonderfully good read It s 450 pages long and I read it in 3 days I just couldn t put it down A brilliant book Highly recommended Kunimitsu (Buku 1) one Chuck Norris of the most powerful families in British society in the turbulent days leading up to World War I The 9th Duke who had devoted his entire adult life to Great Myths of the Great Depression organizing and cataloging several hundred years' worth Grace Faith Free Will Contrasting Views of Salvation Calvinism and Arminianism of family correspond.

Review The Secret Rooms The Secret Rooms Free download ↠ 8 Read Ò eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF É Catherine Bailey Ence had carefully erased three periods of his life from the record But why Filled with fascinating real life characters a mysterious death family secrets and affairs aplenty The Secret Rooms is an enthralling page turning true story that reads like an Agatha Christie nove. What the hell was this No seriously what the hell At first I was apprehensive about reading this but knowing my reading history I like to give every book a chance Unfortunately I wanted to personally rip out every page of this book and not recycle anything I did not have a clue what this book was about does it suppose to be mystery Ohh creepy horrific thrilling right Puh please this book is abominably bad not even worth the time or effort For the life of me I do not understand why books like this get critically praised maybe it is not my type of genre or whatever This book was just atrociously bad just pathetic
