I love all things aristocratic, so I was instantly drawn to A Charmed Life: Growing Up in Macbeth’s Castle, by Liza Campbell.  Liza was the last child to be born in Cawdor Castle, the locale of Shakepeare’s Macbeth.  This is the story of a family, particularly Liza’s father, the twenty-fifth Thane of Cawdor, who eventually destroys himself, his family and his family’s legacy.  Fascinating, sad, honest and humorous, Liza captures it all.
