When Edward died in 1918, Violet and Alfred were married for four brief, happy years. Imperial Marriage is a portrait of a family, a marriage and an age now gone for ever. With its brilliant evocations of late Victorian and Edwardian aristocracy it brings to life one of the most significant periods of British history and takes the reader into the personal lives of those who sincerely believed that they had a manifest destiny to carry British rule every corner of the world.
