|This richly illustrated short, extracted from the official book The Chronicles of Downton Abbey, focuses on the characters individually, examining their motivations, their actions and the inspirations behind them. Forwarded by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes.<br> Ã¢ÂÂThereÃ¢ÂÂs an independence about Mary,Ã¢ÂÂ says Michelle Dockery, the actress who plays her. Ã¢ÂÂSheÃ¢ÂÂs not influenced by anyone and sheÃ¢ÂÂs very much her own person, she makes her own decisions. I understand her because IÃ¢ÂÂm one of three girls too and IÃ¢ÂÂve always been defiant that I didnÃ¢ÂÂt want to do what they did.Ã¢ÂÂ<br> Having her heart both broken and put back together by her true love, Matthew, has rounded the edges off Mary. Now, we find she has her backbone of steel but she is kinder, nicer and altogether more forgiving of human fallibilities Ã¢ÂÂ even her own.<br> Matthew is a lucky man to have survived the war. WhatÃ¢ÂÂs more, he has the possibility of gaining a large fortune, and is due to marry the woman he loves. Yet, he is not a man at ease. His conscience is easily pricked by the requirements that lie ahead of him in the role of Earl of Grantham.<br> Purchase this ebook short and the others in the series to get closer still to the characters at Downton Abbey and to understand more about their social context Ã¢ÂÂ from the changing role of the aristocracy to fashion and beauty, American Anglophiles, the Suffragette movement and life below stairs in a big country house like Downton.<br> Search for The Chronicles of Downton Abbey to purchase all shorts combined.<br>|
