Alice Keppel was mistress to both the Prince of Wales and Lord Grimthorpe; Grimthorpe's abandoned fiancee Eve Fairfax was sometime muse to Rodin; while his daughter Violet Trefusis became the lover of Vita Sackville-West. Transporting the reader from Yorkshire to Rapallo, this biographical tour de force follows an intimate web of connections though the undercurrents of Victorian and Edwardian society to bring to light this brilliant company of neglected women.
