Pepita | Vita Sackville-West
2 posts | 1 to read
WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY JULIET NICOLSON Vita Sackville-West was an extraordinary woman from a long line of extraordinary women this book tells their stories. Her grandmother Pepita, daughter of an old-clothes pedlar, made her fortune as a dancer and had a scandalous affair with an English diplomat. Their illegitimate daughter Victoria, Vita's mother, spent her childhood hidden in a convent but went on to be the glamorous mistress of Knole, one of the grandest old houses in England. Vita brings her legendary wit, passion and eccentricity to this colourful family portrait.

Ok so let me try to get my act together for #wanderingjune I obviously wandered off the path and got lost in the bushes!

Here‘s one I‘m adding to my TBR #becauseVita
This is the story of Vita Sackville West‘s grandmother, who is described as “the half-gypsy daughter of an old clothes pedlar from Malaga” Seems Vita was fascinated by her links to the #gypsyroad

Aimeesue I recently acquired Juliet Nicholson's book on her family, Pepita's descendants, and I'm looking forward to it! (edited) 6mo
