Dorothy Wellesley, Jane’s grandmother, was an extraordinary woman. Poet, gardener, traveller and heiress; a convention-flouting bisexual. In Blue Eyes and a Wild Spirit Jane tells of a life including an affair with Vita Sackville-West, which wrecked her marriage to the Duke of Wellington, and her intimate friendship with WB Yeats. The author of Wellington: A Journey Through My Family and the daughter of the eighth Duke returns with a riveting biography drawn from previously unseen sources.
