Two entwined families: the aristocratic Inghams and the Swanns who serve them. One stately home: Cavendon Hall, a grand imposing house nestled in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. A society beauty: Lady Daphne Ingham is the most beautiful of the Earl's daugthers. Being presented at Court and then a glittering marriage is her destiny. But in the summer of 1913, a devastating event changes her future forever, and puts the House of Ingham at risk.
Life as the families of Cavendon Hall know it - Royal Ascot, supper dances, grouse season feasts - is about to alter beyond recognition as the storm clouds of war gather.

Not far in but narrator not suited to this book.
If you could sum up Cavendon Hall in three words, what would they be?
Yorkshire, comforting, familiar.
Would you be willing to try another one of Anna Bentinck’s performances?
Not if there is a Yorkshire accent involved
Any additional comments?
Why on earth was this narrator selected to read a book which involves Yorkshire accents? The voice she uses for the young gypsy girl Genevra makes her sound more like a 60 year old man. I am Yorkshire born and bred and her supposed local accents are dire. Am trying my best to enjoy this audio book but rather wish I had bought the book itself and I am seriously considering returning the audio book, solely due to the narration.

Lost in another time....
I loved this book. The characters were perfectly balanced...most memorable for me was The Great War. chapters...anticipating who was going to return and who may not. i thought the narrator was spectacular. I must read the sequel asap....Just hooked on period dramas with a bit of history thrown in....So enjoyable. cannot go far wrong with BTB....
