Her love of history is found in her non-fictional works Oil under Sherwood Forest; The Clumber Love Story; and The Hardwick Love Story.
‘The Clumber Love Story’ describes the events which led to the building of the Mausoleum. The 4th Duke of Newcastle was a sad and unhappy man until he met and married 18 year-old Georgiana in 1807. He took his bride to Clumber House, a fine mansion in Sherwood Forest. Tragically their idyllic marriage ended with her death at the age of 33. His thoughts and plans are recorded in the diaries he wrote at the time. The talk will begin at 2.30pm, with opportunities to visit the memorial chamber both before and after the lecture.
