Summary

As the clouds of war gather over Cavendon Hall, the next generation must step forward....
The great house of Cavendon Hall has stood on the Yorkshire moors for centuries. Two families, the aristocratic Inghams and the Swanns who serve them, have been bound by loyalty since the first stone was laid. But when war looms, the survival of the great Cavendon estate must rest with the Earl's eldest daughter, Daphne, and her sister in-law, Cecily Swann.
Sons, husbands and brothers are called up to fight; trials and tragedies strike the great house itself, but the women of every generation and background rise to meet the terrible threat posed by Hitler.
The Cavendon Luck has held for a long time. Can it hold in the face of this greatest threat of all - and can it protect the next generation?

Critic reviews

"The four young women centre stage are a feistier lot than their Downton counterparts.... These are likeable, well-drawn characters whose fortunes you follow with keen interest...neatly captures the brittleness of the decade that danced and stumbled towards the Great Depression." ( Daily Mail)
"Sweeping, fascinating and dramatic...there's even a nod to Emma Harte. The power and emotion come through on every page." ( Romantic Times Book Reviews)
Acclaim for Cavendon Hall:
"A classic saga of loyalty, secrets, passion and intrigue...if you've been suffering withdrawal symptoms from Downton, this is for you." (Daily Mail)
"A stately home, a dangerous secret and two families whose fates have been intertwined for generations...a gripping period piece set on the brink of the Great War. Exquisite escapism of the highest order." (The Lady)
"A glorious family saga for Downton Abbey fans.... This is Barbara Taylor Bradford in her element, full of drama, passion, romance and danger." (Sarah Broadhurst, lovereading.co.uk)

Dear god where to start...

I wanted this because her other books are so bad I thought I'd have a laugh at some lazy writing but...my god this is truly something else. Go for it if you want a giggle at an appallingly inept author but beware - you will be bored, confused, and very very offended. No one this racist, nationalist and plain useless at writing should be allowed to comment on the holocaust. It is basically 15 hours of worshipping her own characters and bemoaning their occasional "bad luck" when they actually live in a mansion and continue to feast, untouched by war, and then about two minutes detailing the genocide. Wish I could get back the time I wasted listening to this! It's tragic to think of all the talented people struggling to get published when stuff like THIS is allowed to see the light of day.
