Taking as a basis her own photograph albums, scrapbooks, and notebooks, and the recollections of contemporaries from Edith Wharton and Vita Sackville-West to William Robinson and Henry Francis du Pont, it describes not only the building and development of the house and garden but also her skills both in the arts and as a businesswoman and her collaborations with architects—preeminently Edwin Lutyens, but also Oliver Hill and M.H.
