A Sunday Times bestseller - Five women. One house. One extraordinary history. Even today, Cliveden retains its royal mystique - it is where Meghan Markle and her mother spent the night before the royal wedding - but from its construction in the 1660s to its heyday in the 1960s, Cliveden has played host to a dynasty of remarkable and powerful women. Anna Maria, Elizabeth, Augusta, Harriet, and Nancy were five ladies who, over the course of three centuries, shaped British society through their beauty, personalities, and political influence. Restoration and revolution, aristocratic rise and fall, world war and cold war form the extraordinary backdrop against which their stories unfold. An addictive history of the period and an intimate exploration of the timeless relationships between people and place, The Mistresses of Cliveden is a story of sex, power and politics, and the ways in which exceptional women defy the expectations of their time.

The Cliveden Set had its roots in South Africa immediately after the Boer War. Back in England its members formed a self-appointed pressure group. They would often meet at Cliveden or 4 St. James's Square in London - the homes of the American-born multi-millionaire Waldorf, 2nd Viscount Astor and his wife Nancy, by birth a Virginian belle, and the first woman M.P. to take her seat in the House of Commons. Suddenly in the late 1930s the Set was catapulted into unlooked-for notoriety when Communist journalist Claud Cockburn identified it as a cabal that sought to manipulate, and even determine, British foreign policy including a conspiracy to procure a humiliating, dishonourable settlement with Nazi Germany. "The Washington Post" asserted that the Set constituted "the real centre of British foreign policy," menacing and challenging "the constitutional structures of British democracy." This fascinating book is the first full-length account of the Set and its influence.
