“All families have their own secrets that none of the family members wants to go public about, even the Rutland, one of England’s richest families have secrets. “, this is what Catherine Bailey declared in her book. Sian Griffiths wrote a book review on Bailey’s “the secret rooms”, he found it not only gothic and mystery but also true. Sian claims, Bailey was expecting to write about things such the journeys of the Belvoir volunteers, how the war ended and so on. But due to her discoveries, they led to a totally different and (unexpected) book. When Bailey realized that there were three missing parts of the archives, she suspected John, the 9th duke, states Griffiths. The missing parts consist of John’s life, which he was ashamed of and therefore tried to conceal them. The first part was about the death of the 9th duke’s brother; the second about his father’s attempt to sell his inheritance and the third was about no one but the 9th duke himself. John had stomach bug, but instead of go back as soon as he became well and supporting the men at the front line, he stayed at home longer than necessary.
Griffiths alleged, if the Rutland could determine, this book would never been written.
Thanks a lot!
