Until the middle of the last century, London's social calendar was dominated by 'the Season', a round of social events and parties during which the daughters of the upper classes made their 'debuts'. Debutantes and their families descended on the capital from all over Britain to take part in this elaborate process that in its blend of glamour, great privilege and archaic and sometimes comic ritual is emblematic of a world now lost. From the preparations and formalities of court presentation to the exhausting round of parties that followed, Debutantes and the London Season is a detailed look at a phenomenon that was central to the lives of generations of privileged young ladies.

Once upon a time the well-bred daughters of Britain's aristocracy took part in a female rite of passage: curtseying to the Queen. But in 1958 this ritual was coming to an end. Under pressure to shine - not least from their mothers - the girls became the focus for newspaper diarists and society photographers in a party season that stretched for months among the great houses of England, Ireland and Scotland. Fiona MacCarthy traces the stories of the girls who curtseyed that year, and shows how their lives were to open out in often very unexpected ways - as Britain itself changed irreversibly during the 1960s, and the certainties of the old order came to an end.

The Last Enchantment In an attempt to prevent her niece from marrying the notorious Duke of Salterne, Aurelia Carrington took her to Brighton — unaware that the man was hot on their heels. The reclusive Aurelia was determined to stand up to Salterne and with the clash of these two strong-willed people, a heady passion was bound to erupt! Aurelia soon knew that far more than her heart was at risk should she succumb to her love for Salterne, for another suitor was making demands that threatened her. All that Aurelia could ask herself was to what limits would Salterne go to protect their love? The Rebellious Debutante The Earl of Rushmore might be the catch of the ton, but that did not stop Perdita from accidentally-on-purpose stamping on his toe! Well, in her opinion, he deserved it! The earl had secretly been rather impressed with the rebellious debutante — her feisty spirit was a refreshing change from the simpering young ladies who had only marriage on their minds. Despite the fact that Perdita disliked him, he’d even managed to persuade her to help him in a matter of great importance. But the biggest surprise of all for the earl was that he now had marriage on his mind!
