Steadying yourself for the end of Downton?

Now that Downton is in its final season, perhaps you’re steadying yourself for that final episode? Readying your bottle of wine and box of tissues? And then, what next?

If you’ve been enjoying Downton Abbey, we have a few book suggestions, as well as some television miniseries that might help:

books:
The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy (also a miniseries)
The Cazalet Chronicles by Elizabeth Jane Howard
Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh (also a miniseries and a recent film)
Up at the Villa by Somerset Maugham (also a film)
The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton (also a film)
The Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear
The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro (also a film)

TV series:
Call the Midwife
The House of Eliott
Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries
Upstairs, Downstairs (1971 version)

You may find these in our catalog, or ask any of our Library staff!
