    Written with humour and style by Sian Evans, Queen Bees is a book that looks at the lives of six remarkable society hostesses and the powerful impact they made on social history.

    The women covered in the book are Lady Astor, who went on to become the first female MP, Mrs Greville, who cultivated a relationship with Edward VII, and Lady Londonderry, Lady Cunard, Laura Corrigan and Lady Colefax.

    During the aftermath of the First World War, the previously strict hierarchies of the British class system had been weakened and a number of ambitious women had made sure it was their time. Taking their place at the top of society as great hostesses, they ruled over London from their dining tables and salons, entertaining all kinds of powerful people and celebrities.

    This is the story of a form of societal revolution, and the extraordinary women who helped it happen. Extraordinary women whose influence can still be felt today.
