In Search of Ruritania – The Life & Times of Ivor Novello

“As latecomers to Gosford Park, we were intrigued by the more than passing references to Ivor Novello. The book is a delightful look into the life and work of the composer of “Keep The Home Fires Burning” and will surely keep your interest on a coast-to-coast flight.” (2016)
