The Earl and Countess of Dilberne are caught up in the lavish preparations, yet Lady Isobel still has ample time to fret. Her sixteen-year-old niece, Adela, tragically orphaned, has run off with a troupe of fake spiritualists; her plain yet clever daughter, Rosina, is threatening to elope to Australia - of all places - and her new daughter-in-law is pregnant with a potential heir, yet still completely untrained in the particular ways of the English aristocracy. With her trademark joie de vivre, Fay Weldon once again draws her readers into the lives and loves of the aristocratic Dilberne family, as they embrace not only a new century, but a new generation - a generation with somewhat radical views."
  • "The year is 1901 and London Society is in a frenzy of anticipation for the coronation of Edward VII. Lord and Lady Dilberne, their fortune restored by their son's recent marriage to a Chicago heiress, are caught up in the lavish preparations from their home in Belgrave Square. But while they fuss over diamonds and ball-gowns, their sixteen-year-old niece, Adela, has joined a troupe of spiritualists. As the Dilbernes seek to avoid scandal, it falls to Viscount Arthur and his new wife to bring her back to the fold. Fay Weldon's wit, wisdom and warmth brings this collision of Edwardian w."@en
  • "From the award-winning writer of the original Upstairs Downstairs'the second novel in an irresistible trilogy about an Earl's family and his servants at the turn of the twentieth century. As 1901 comes to an end, there is much to be grateful for: The Dilberne fortune has been restored, and the grand Dilberne Court, with its one hundred rooms, has been saved. Lord Robert's son, Arthur, is happily married to Chicago heiress, Minnie, who is pregnant and trying to come to terms with her new role as lady of the manor, and her charming but controlling mother-in-law, Lady Isobel. As Lord Robert and Lady Isobel get caught up in the preparations of the coronation of Edward VII, they debate the future of their recently orphaned niece, Adela. Isobel and Minnie want to take her in; Robert and Arthur do not. While they argue, Adela runs away and joins a travelling group of spiritualists and has a life-saving run-in with the king. With Long Live the King, Fay Weldon continues the magnificent trilogy that began with Habits of the House. As the award-winning writer for the pilot episode of the original Upstairs Downstairs, Weldon brings her deservedly famous wit and insight to this novel of love and desire, morals and manners."@en
