The Bellamy Saga (1976)
First published in 1976, this fictional biography is the intimate and detailed portrait of the celebrated Bellamy family of the TV show Upstairs, Downstairs.
No family in the past century - excepting perhaps the Forsytes - has been so dramatically exposed to public stare as the Bellamys of Eaton Place. Drawing from the diaries of Richard Bellamy, the personal letters of Lady Majorie, the Southwold Papers in the British Museum, as well as his own friendship with James Bellamy and his conversations with Mrs. Elizabeth (Bellamy) Wallace shortly before her recent death in New York City, Pearson has written a sensitive and finely detailed portrait of this patrician English family.
First publication: 1976 (Harper Collins)
FUN FACT: Downton Abbey didn't have a patch on this! This book is dedicated to his mother, Constance Kate, a fan of the TV series.
