Indina Sackville. The Daily Beast recently called her “the original Gossip Girl.” She was irresistable. She inspired fashion, fantasy, fiction and art.  She had a total of five husbands and many lovers. She got divorced (in the 1920’s!)She was a “full-blown flapper,” an icon and the great-grandmother of Frances Osborne who has just penned The Bolter The story of the wild, beautiful fearless Idina Sackville, descendant of one of England’s oldest families, who went off to Kenya in search of adventure and became known as the high priestess of the scandalous “HAPPY VALLEY SET”  How’s that for a reading line?

We’ve obtained an autographed copy of this bobbed-hair infused biography and will give it away to one lucky reader who correctly identifies the name of the novel in which a character is supposedly based after Idina Sackville. Hint: click here

Happy Friday!
