When Carol Wallace published the novel, To Marry an English Lord in 1989 she never imagined one day it would end up in the hands of Downton Abbey creator, Julian Fellowes. Fellowes drew his inspiration from this book to begin creating the first character for the show, Cora Crawley (played by Elizabeth McGovern). Ms. Wallace recounts tales of formal courtships, lavish soirees, extravagant fashion and jewels, and scandalous affairs in the glamourous world of international high society.
