The Other Guinness Girl: A Question of Honor Summary

The Other Guinness Girl: A Question of Honor by Emily Hourican

'A fascinating read' Sunday Independent

'The best in the series so far' Sunday Business Post

Honor Guinness is rich, aristocratic, shy and awkward -- nothing like her glamorous cousins Aileen, Maureen and Oonagh.

But when she marries charming and ambitious American, Henry 'Chips' Channon, together they make the perfect couple at the heart of the most elite social circles -- including a close friendship with the Prince of Wales and Mrs Wallis Simpson. But within the marriage, all is less than perfect.

Meanwhile, Honor's best friend, the beautiful, enigmatic Doris, is set on establishing her place in London society. But, as tensions rise in 1930s Europe, Doris, born to a German-Jewish mother, hears troubling accounts from her cousins in Berlin. Will she be able to secure the right marriage to protect her family, and her future?

Set against the rise of Nazism, the abdication of a king, and the slide into World War II, The Other Guinness Girl is a sweeping novel of love, desire, friendship and self-discovery.

The Other Guinness Girl: A Question of Honor Reviews

The Other Guinness Girl is the best in the series so far. While still set in glittering high society, Hourican adjusts her lens to focus on the stain that created so much ghoulish sentiment in the lead-up to World War II * SUNDAY BUSINESS POST *
Through the author's mix of meticulous research and imagination, we get behind the scenes of London's high society [...] It's a fascinating read * SUNDAY INDEPENDENT *
The Other Guinness Girl: A Question of Honour is another splendid and highly enjoyable read from Emily Hourican. Using a mix of fact and fiction, it captures the essence of the 1930s and is immersive in its descriptions. All the individual characters are very much brought to life, encouraging readers to further explore the history of this extraordinary family * SWIRL AND THREAD *
